Butterfly Wiz Card

I made this card many moons ago when I was working at Art on the Block for a swap in our stamp club, Chips off the Block. The challenge for this exchange was to "stamp cute", no matter what your personal stamping style. The stamp is 1150 T Butterfly Wiz by Visual Image Printery. It was embossed in black on watercolor paper. I then taped down the paper along each edge to a counter and watercolored the background sky and grass and then sprinkled with course salt and allowed it to dry to draw the paint. Then I finished watercoloring the rest of the scene. When it dried, I untaped the edges to expose the white paper and then trimmed it with deckle edged scissors. I used a sea sponge to sponge Pearlescent Ink in Galactic Blue, Moon Violet, and Sundown Magenta over a sheet of glossy light blue cardstock. When dry I cut it to size and layered it onto a card I had made using a goldenrod colored stock. I then attached the watercolored panel "photo" to the card using kraft colored photo corners.
