Inlaid Butterfly Die Cuts

I had a different idea in mind when I was planning this card.  But as I worked on it, it evolved into this.  My original plan was to die cut this butterfly in several different colors and use the little pieces that cut out to fill in the wings with color.    But after I placed the black butterfly outline onto the blue background I liked the simple color combo.  Sometimes less is more!  Here is the SCS video tutorial I followed to make this card: 

I think my little Nikon camera is about to die.  Even with fresh batteries, it is not staying in focus.  I'm noticing lately that my cards all look out of focus on the left side.  Sigh!  I do not want to buy a camera, but I guess it is time to look.  The one I'm using now cost less than $75 and has lasted a long time.

Copper Glitter and Gel Medium

I mixed some copper glitter with gel medium onto a craft mat and then used a palette knife to spread the mixture over two different stencils onto card stock.  After they dried I cut them into layers for the card front.   The glitzy flower was in my stash and was purchased quite awhile ago at Michaels.  I found two coppery colored leaves in my stash to pair with the flower.

Be sure to clean off the stencil and mat right away before the excess mixture dries.  It washes off easily with warm/hot water and some liquid soap.

For a CAS (clean and simple) challenge I made this card with a "thinking of you" theme.  I dug into my drawer of specialty papers and pulled out some mulberry paper.  I used water to help tear it into an oval shape and get those pretty feathered edges.  The simple sentiment is popped up with dimensionals.  An enamel heart sticker on the little thought cloud finishes it off.
