Hello Crafty Friends!
I am so happy to announce that The Card Concept has returned for another creative season! We are kicking things off with Challenge #119, Beautiful Butterflies! It’s so easy to play along with The Card Concept. Every two weeks, we show you a fabulous inspiration photo, and invite you to create a card that shows off one of amazing card styles! Pick one style, or mix and match, then share your creations over on The Card Concept blog right here: https://thecardconcept.blogspot.com
What’s more inspiring than these beautiful butterflies? They look like they have been painted with watercolors! I really love the fresh greens and cheerful pinks, and brought them into my mixed media design. I wanted a CAS look with the details of the different media.
I created the background with watercolor paints, then added a few sequins. The fun part, of course, is the butterflies themselves, which I created out of alcohol inks and YUPO paper. The blended colors of the alcohol inks are perfect for butterfly wings, and the look is so much prettier in “real life” than in these photos. How about giving alcohol inks a try?
Take a look at all of the wonderful inspiration over on The Card Concept today, and meet the 2019/2020 Design team!
Thanks so much for joining us today!
Live your life in color!
