Beauty Abounds Butterfly Thinlits

Hello Everyone ~ a pretty Beauty Abounds Butterfly Thinlits creation is my share today.

I was very busy yesterday making cards and videos.  My sister is in the hospital and I may need to make another trip back to Maryland.  I may make some changes if I have to leave and do not get my videos made but I will have cards for you.  It rained all day so it was easy to craft.  Today I am headed to the outlets with my friend Barb.  I need some more t-shirts and they have their 3/4 sleeve ones on sale.  I will have the girls on Monday and will meet Jess on Tuesday half way between here and Maryland.  Hopefully I will not have to make the trip all the way.

It is only a few days before my newest online class ~ Exclusively Cards ~ goes live.  I shared a Sneak Peek on Monday.  I have another Sneak Peek today.  I am excited about this new program.  It is a great way to get ideas for just cards.  Be looking for another video that will explain the program further.















I played with the Beauty Abounds thinlits for my creation today.  I began by cutting out the large detailed thinlit with Basic Black card stock.  The thinlit that is not as open was cut out using Blueberry Bushel card stock.  The 2 thinlits were layered using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  A piece of Watercolor paper was used along with the Coastal Cabana reinker to create a watercolor background.  I did a watercolor wash over the entire background.  Once it dried I again added another layer of color using Bermuda Bay reinker to the background to add more intense color.  Once the panel was dry I added it to a Blueberry Bushel card base using Tear & Tape.  The butterfly thinlits were then added to the watercolor paper using liquid glue.  Here is the completed Beauty Abounds Butterfly Thinlits creation.
