Today I have a fun card from returning guest designer Libby Hickson with my recent "Make a Statement" ! Libby got so over the top excited when Gina did the sneak peek of this set (I do read all those comments, you know!), I just had to send one out to her to see what she'd do with it LOL! Now she's got some "map" cards coming up, but today she just decided to use the beautiful butterfly, times three! :)
After coloring and cutting out the embossed butterflies, she attached them to this background she made using glossy cardstock and Copics, coloring in circles, doesn't it create a gorgeous mottled-stained glass-watercolory look? The purple was done in the same way. Libby says she'd be glad to do a tutorial if you want, so let her know! :)
She also added some Stickles for sparkle and black thread for the antennae. I love the idea of using thread BTW, adds some fun texture and will hold up better than thin, fussy cut stamped on paper antennae!
Thanks, Libby for the inspiration and sharing this fun looking technique, I think it's just perfect to go with the butterfly wings! :) More fun with "Make a Statement" and Libby coming up!
Now! For tomorrow! Some VERY BIG, VERY EXCITING NEWS!! Can't wait, can't wait to kick off 2012 letting YOU in on my big secret! (No, I'm not pregnant, what's that all about?! LOL!)
PS If you already know or have stumbled across the big secret, you can just leave a comment saying "I know!" or "WINK!" (because I'm curious to know who all knows) but PLEASE please PLEASE let me be the one to tell everyone else, okay?? You only have one more day to hold it in, and if I can wait you can!!!
See you NEXT YEAR!! ;) (2012)
