reap what you sow

 Hello! It's another green hue day today - for cards, that is!
~ Ü ~

Using this week's fabulous image from Papercraft Star, this creation uses shades of greens with yellow and gold accents. The edges have been inked in peeled paint & walnut stain DIs, as has the flourishes and butterfly. Floral background is from the Spring Swing set from The Paper Shelter, which have been stitched onto glittery yellow paper.

The butterfly has been inked, then applied a thin shimmery film from gold pearl pen. The body is moss green dotted with gold.

The multi loop bow done in paper twine is based on a tutorial by Emily Keaton here.

The sentiment is a mix of sticker letters and raised die cut letters.


Thanks for stopping by!

supplies: flourishes (spellbinders), green letters & border (lifestyle crafts), butterfly (cheery lynn), pearl pens (viva decor), inks (Ranger)
