Mothers Day is only a month away so time to create a special card for a special lady. I've used the Stix2 with heat range & have started by using the Tim Holz Wildflowers dies with the Various Materials sheet. I then sponged the die cut flowers softly with the pastel colours of the Versamagic pads before removing the paper backing sheet (a bit tricky but worth it!) & laying in place on the canvas which I had previously sponged with the Distress inks. Now cover the flowers with parchment paper & heat with the iron. It's important to leave the parchment paper in place until completely cold or you will peel off your design too! I love this effect as it gives a beautiful water colour look.I glued the piece of canvas to a piece of lavender card & mounted to the left of the card blank.
Next I took a piece of the DS poly sheet & peeled off one backing paper to stick it onto a piece of card. I then die cut 2 butterflies using the Tim Holtz Detailed Butterflies set using the solid butterfly die.I also die cut 2 butterflies in pink & blue using the filigree die. I peeled off the remaining backing sheet on the "solid" butterflies & applied the hologram silver transfer foil from the "Carnival" set. Now simply lift the wings of the lacy butterfly & attach it to sit over the silver one. To finish I've stuck the butterflies to the card blank along with the stamped sentiment & I've added some clear foam pads covered with transfer foils as embellishments.
Here's a closer look at the butterflies.
