Butterfly Congrats

More new designs from Penny Black today!

These are just two of the beautiful butterflies that are included in Penny Black’s “Social Butterfly” which are fluttering above  “Divine Pattern”.

Only one colored cardstock was used in this design!  After creating a card base from a Labels Fifteen die cut from Coral Reef, it was time to transform white cardstock with sponge daubers and inks for the remaining elements. 

Another Labels Fifteen, this time die cut from white cardstock, was stamped with Divine Pattern in Pistachio Memento ink.  Starting from the center and working out, Cantaloupe, Pistachio, and Olive Grove Memento inks were added with sponge daubers.  Additional shading added to the stamped design was done with New Sprout and Pistachio Memento Markers.  This patterned piece was attached to the front of the prepared card with dimensional foam tape.

The butterflies were stamped on white cardstock with Onyx Black VersaFine and heat embossed with clear powder.  All shading and coloring was done with sponge daubers and Cantaloupe, Love Letter and Elderberry Memento inks.

GooseBumps clear texture spray was applied with a toothpick to the dots and patterns on the butterflies and then sprinkled with black glitter.  After the glue dried, the elements were dusted with a soft brush to remove any remaining loose glitter.

The banner was stamped with “Congrats” from Round and Round and embellished with antique silver brads.

"Social Butterfly" is also being featured on the Penny Black blog "here" along with more design team card ideas!  

Have a happy day,
