Butterfly Blessings 06931
On my first card, I made a couple of water color backgrounds using yellows, oranges & peach colors. I stamped the Boho Paisley Background on one, the butterfly on part of another & used another portion for the greeting oval. I didn’t want to completely cover the new Boho Paisley Bg image, but I wanted a little separation behind the butterfly, so I only used part of the white die cut Boho Bg die. The greeting was die cut w/ the new Oval & Stitched Oval dies. I used a neon yellow gel pen to add a Bandana effect to the butterfly & background.Here’s a look at the inside.

Paisley Hope cu 06924
My second card started with two white panels I brayered with a rainbow ink pad.  Paisley Hope 06920
I used one to stamp the Boho Faith pattern, then I black embossed it and die cut w/ the Vintage Label die & added a larger white layer behind it. I die cut the Flourished Pattern out of black, attached it to the larger background then embossed them both w/ the Flourished Pattern die. The die cut Hope was added along with some fussy cut little flowers (from the Boho Love set) & I used a white gel pen to add highlights.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Jungle Cat 06958
I’m thinking my little jungle scene kind of describes our weather. Hot, humid & the leopard is just hanging out trying to keep cool. After stamping the leopard, I masked him & sponged in the background & sky then colored him with Copics. The greeting was rearranged to fit the die cut oval & I cut around his feet & tail to slip it under.

The brown die cut frame was added on top then I punched out about a bajillion leaves in different shades of green, scored & sponged them before adding them all on top to look like the jungle floor. Here are the Copics I used to color it.
