Blended Butterfly Thanks - Stampin' Up! Brilliant Wings Dies - Fab Friday 211

 TGIF stampers!  The crew at Fab Friday is back with a new challenge to make your Friday even better!  We can't wait to see what you create with this fun sketch!

  I needed to make a set of thank you cards so I put the Brilliant Wings dies to work.  That center oval looked like a perfect place for a butterfly!

  To make multiple cards using the die cuts I started out first by blending 4 colors of ink onto a piece of Whisper White.  I used Melon Mambo, Mango Melody, Coastal Cabana and Highland Heather and with the blending brushes just made splotches of color blending in the edges until all the white was covered.  Then I used the large butterfly shape die where they are all connected and cut out all of the butterflies from the single sheet of colored paper.  Each one came out different depending on what colors they fell on.

   Next I cut out the basic Black overlays and added them to the colored piece with dimensionals on the body.  The sentiment is from Friends Are Like Seashells and is stamped in black and popped on dimensionals.  A few small rhinestones decorate the sides.

   I added the butterfly to the card front over the top of some crinkled seam binding ribbon which is over the top of a piece of Butterfly Bijou DSP which I'm sorry to say sold out so fast customers barely had a chance to get it.

  The DSP is over the top of a piece of Whisper White embossed with the Greenery embossing folder.  The card base is Whisper White thick with opposite corners rounded for a bit of interest.

  So not much stamping but a lot of ink use!  I think I did 5 different panels so I have a whole stack of butterflies to put onto cards!

  Head over to Fab Friday to see the rest of the fabulous Design Team samples!
