Beautiful Day Pink Butterfly

Hey all! Back again! This time with a butterfly from the Beautiful Day set colored in Pink!

Even though I'm not a "girly" girl, I've always liked pink! Dresses or fancy stuff, not so much!! :)

I will preface this by saying, the scan did NOT do justice to the card! It is much more "WOW" in person!!

The colors seem off in the scan, but trust me, in person, they are spot on!
I went looking for background paper (DSP) to use and stumbled on this "foil" pack that is a Sale-A-Bration FREE item. Part of the 2nd issue, Springtime Foils item #147193 FREE with a $50 purchase. 12 sheets, 3 each of 4 designs. This particular one has a "Rose Gold" foil. So, I picked up by Stampin' Blends to see what pink choice I had and the answer was Pink Pirouette. Not a color I use often, but it worked out GREAT for this idea :) I stamped the butterfly from Beautiful Day on a piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock. I colored the "center" sections with Smoky Slate for accent. Then colored the rest with the light Pink Pirouette. I edged with the dark Pink Pirouette and then re-blended the edges.  Before cutting out, I went over ALL the butterfly with my Wink of Stella. THIS my be my new favorite item!!

OH, but I forgot the best part!! See that ribbon?? Yep, colored with the Stampin' Blend marker! That is the Whisper White Organza ribbon from the Occasions Catalog I cut a strip that I knew would be more than long enough to knot around the background. On a piece of scratch paper, I brushed it with my dark Pink Pirouette blend marker brush tip. I made sure the color was even along the length of the ribbon and set it aside while I did the rest of the card. After coloring the butterfly and cutting it out, I picked it up, ran a test tissue along it to make sure it was dry. Yep, no color on the tissue!

I knotted the ribbon around the background into a bow and trimmed the edges. The butterfly is attached with dimensionals to the foil background paper. Accent layer of Smoky Slate and card base of Pink Pirouette.
