Live Your Dream With Passion

Happy Sunday, everyone! I hope you've had a great weekend. Where I live, it has been cold and miserable - I'm so ready for spring! While we wait for that to come, I thought I'd share a pretty, springlike card I made for CHA using Tim Holtz's new Perspective stamp set from Stampers Anonymous.

The butterfly is the star of this set and you can see why - it's incredible! And there are so many different ways you can use it. For my card, I stamped it on Wendy Vecchi's Clearly For Art film using StazOn and then cut it out. I applied Glossy Accents to the back side and then covered it with Rock Candy Dry glitter. It's so pretty in person!

The card base was made with Ranger's Watercolor Paper and various Distress Stain Sprays. I spritzed them onto a craft sheet and then dipped the paper into the mist. I love the way this group of colors blends. It always makes me happy! When it was dry, I used one of the dies from Tim's Labels set to cut a window. I stamped the sentiment onto the card and then adhered the watercolored panel on top.

To finish the card, I adhered the butterfly to the card, heated it gently and then bent the wings up. I added random bits of Tissue Tape and a few embellishments and I was done!

All the supplies I used can be found at Simon Says Stamp via the links below.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Make sure you check back this week - I have a bunch of fun stuff coming up!
