FF May - Gold Tipped Butterfly

I am so excited to share with you this month’s project with for our Fancy Friday monthly hop!  If you just came over from the amazing Jeanna, 11270325_10204003131390964_700205068466670104_owelcome to the next stop.  My friends and I want to be able to share with you our ideas in a monthly format.  We will use different themes each month – sometimes colors, sometimes a sketch, sometimes a stamp set focus.  The one thing you can count on is that it will be fancy!  Over our year on the 2013 Artisan Design Team,  “fancy” became our word to describe the best projects, the best new clothes, even the best pedicure colors.  Now we want to share with you our take on “fancy” each month.  This month our theme is a sketch designed by me!  Hope you like this one!


There are so many crafting influences that focus on gold and foil and I have found them so inspiring.  So I thought it would be fun to create a card focusing all on gold.  I started by stamping the cross-hatch from the new You’ve Got This in Versamark and then heat embossing with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Then I cut out the butterfly from White Vellum with the Butterflies Framelits.  I “smooshed” the sides of the butterfly in more Versamark and then embossed those with the gold powder again.  So pretty (and even more so in person).  I used an old gold marker to color the pearls and added them to the body of the butterfly.  Finally for the vertical element I used some Gold Sequin Trim and tied it with Gold Baker’s twine.

I’m so glad you stopped in to visit today.  I hope you have a great time seeing all the beautiful things on our hop.  I’d love it if you use the sketch for your own projects.  Make sure you link to your work in my comments if you do!

My oh so talented friend Mercedes Weber is up next!   As always, you are going to love what she created!
