TGIF Challenges!

I took the Challenge! 

I needed some fun after having a rough combo of 9 months Pregnancy, Laryngitis, & The worst Sinus infection.  So I followed Ashley Van Camp’s suggestion to participate in the TGIF challenge #109. So glad I did. #TGIFC109

Part of the Challenge was to head over to Rochelle Blok’s blog, she’s one of the current Artisan’s for Stampin’ Up!, kind of a big deal! Little did I know that I had copied and admired about half of her projects!  So I didn’t need to search long for a million projects I wanted to Copy and Change this time.

I choose this card…

Watercolor ButterFly FAV

Gorgeous huh?! 

She glued each of those beautiful butterfly pieces onto the black butterfly!  Wow, I have a whole new respect for her!

My project looks pretty close to hers.

Boom, there it is! I had a blast making this card!

  • I used watercolor paper, wet the paper first and added Lemon Lime Twist to the center and Melon Mambo to the outside. I glued on the Die cut rose from  the Rose Garden Thinlits. The two leaves are from the Stylish Stems Framelits. I stamped a flower from Petite Petals and punched it out. The Thank you phrase was stamped with Thoughtful Banners in Melon Mambo. To embellish, I used a Melon Mambo Enamel Dot, the Metallic Sequins, old Doilies (couldn’t find the new ones) and Basic Black Baker’s Twine.

  • Watercoloring the rose was by far my favorite part!  It was best to start with the lighter color in the center and add the vibrant/bolder color on the outside and blend really well.  You can use your Heat Tool on level 1 to dry it faster. I used Tombo glue to adhere it and Dimensionals on back.

  • The Black Baker’s Twine was added on top of the Doily and layered three times and tied in back.  I made a cute bow and adhered it on the rose with a glue dot.  The sequins and flower were put on with glue dots.  The  “Thank You” saying was placed with 1-half Dimensional.
