This week I wanted to share a card with you that incorporates a variety of different mediums.  I started by creating the tag and reinforcer and then cutting it out with my Silhouette Cameo (I have provided the file for you below in SVG format).  I then sprayed the tag with Pure Sunshine Dylusions Ink Spray and my Mini Chickenwire stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop.  While it dried, I took one of my butterflies from Pink Paislee’s Artisan Wings and sprayed it with Bubblegum Dylusions Ink Spray and Cotton Candy Chalkboard Glimmer Mist.  When it was dry, I splattered it with Bombay India Ink and then brushed gesso along the edges of the wings. The sentiment was created using one of my favourite tools -my Dymo labeller.

  1. Thank you Andrea for always providing top-notch instructions and projects. You can tell you have a true gift. You continuously share your talent and wisdom — thank you!!

  2. Thank you for showing the custom work done to the butterfly. It is so nice to see that you didn’t take it out of the package and attach it to the card! Your attention to details makes the art pop. Thank you for sharing.

  3. I’ve gotten tired of seeing butterflies on so many projects in the last several months BUT I have to say I love this! I’m also not a “pink person” BUT, again, you won me over. I may even be in the market for some butterflies like this AND some pink sprays. What’s the world coming to??? 😉 I can always count on you, Andrea, AND I always learn something new from your projects and videos. The chicken wire background is one of my favorites, as is any paper with script on it. As Charlie Sheen would say: “Winner!”
