Butterflies Fluttering

Hello Crafty Folks, I am back today with a colorful card.  I discovered my love for gel plate printing and the background I used on this card is made using this technique with acrylic colors and LOTS of different Whimsy products (see link list below)


The butterfly and sentiment are from the newly released DoveArt stamp set Butterflies Fluttering. I stamped the butterfly on a piece of the background paper and fussy cut it to match it perfectly to the BG.


Even though the butterfly blends in in terms of color, the fact that it is cut out and popped up gives a nice 3D effect on the card. The added Stickles to the wings add a nice touch of bling.



I created a watercolor look with the acrylics on my gel plate and after printing I added more texture and depth to the print using different Whimsy stamps and stencil with Archival Ink and acrylic paints, distress crayons and doodling with a white gel pen. 





Whimsy products used:
