morphic bugs

Sounds gross doesn't it. Bugs is a difficult word to work with. Whenever I hear the word "bug" I think of my least favorite bug, a cockroach. Makes me squeamish just thinking about it. But hopefully this card will not have that affect on you.

The stamp set for the butterfly is from inkadinkadoo called morphic bugs. And the background behind the butterflies is done with post-it notes to make the rectangle. Then using a sponge I brushed summer sun on first, then cameo coral, and finally real red. When sponging it's always best to start with your lightest colors first and progressively get darker. Finally I removed the post-it notes and stamped the butterflies stamp. I even went as far as to decorate the inside, something I rarely do, but the scraps were just sitting there waiting to be used.
Sorry the pic is a little blurry. Anyway it was a fun card to make and thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
