Background fun!

I dug a Gelli plate print out of the box today for a Mini-VSN card with the theme of Butterflies.  

 This looks like it is raised with texture, but it is actually not..... the panel was die cut and added to a white card base- I put shimmery Washi tape at the top and bottom of the panel.  I die cut the butterfly in black and white so it would make a shadow effect.  The sentiment was cut out three times and layered, then Wink of Stella added to the top of it. 

 This background is the Technique Lovers Challenge at Splitcoast- fun and easy too!  I brayered 3 colors of acrylic paint onto a white cardstock, then placed a stencil over it and used a baby wipe and wiped off color.  I added white Signo pen and black Pitt pen accents to the sides of the boxes... and added the butterfly die cut and some rhinestones.  (This die was in a case with Memory box dies- not absolutely positive it is Memory Box though).

NO STAMPING on these cards- isn't that crazy!  

Thanks for stopping by!
