Black Tie Friday

I found a new challenge to enter! It is called Black Tie Friday and this is the very first challenge.I decided to remake a card I had made before but put a different spin on it. I have never entered this card in a challenge so I was happy that I could make it fit here. Here is my card...

This background was made with using reinkers and an AquaPainter. It is a very simple technique and more details can be found on the blog post, Watercolor Butterflies. I made up several of these backgrounds at once so it is very easy to assemble when I need a quick card. The butterfly is made with vellum and I embossed in black the scroll type stamp from Elegant Eleanor. I then colored the back trying to match the color scheme already on the card. I wanted it to look like the butterfly had chameleon qualities. I then painted over the butterfly with Frost White Shimmer Paint. I used the ribbon to make the body and antenna's for the butterfly.
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love the colors, and the butterfly.. So creative to use the ribbon as part of the butterfly....this is why I love card challenges!! Thanks for playing with us at Black Tie Friday's, hope we'll see you for next weeks challenge.
