Gypsy Butterfly



This week's Muse card is a bold and bright creation by Vicki Dutcher. It's simple but fabulous!  As you can see I stuck pretty close to Vicki's design because hey, if it ain't broke…  Instead of watercolor (me and techniques are not getting along lately) I used a scrap of ancient 7Gypsies paper.  I tried a vellum sentiment but it didn't feel right and in the end I went with a black strip that seemed to balance the butterfly. Time to head off to work.  Hope you have a fabulous day!







Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White, Coral) Bazzill
Patterned Paper:  7 Gypsies
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Grand Greetings) Lawn Fawn
Ink:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Dies:  (Panels & butterfly) Papertrey Ink
Gems:  Recollections
