Project 365, Day #61


Today I had a bead class for a few hours.  I learned a new technique and now I have another new project to finish.  : )  I am loving this but it is definitely hard to squeeze in all the extra hours to finish the pieces.  I have to remember to take pictures and share my finished projects with you.  Chris and I also went to our storage unit today to try and clean some more out because there is a neighborhood garage sale next weekend.  Hopefully we can empty that storage unit soon.  We have had it for far to long.  Tonight I decided to do a card again.  A butterfly idea popped into my head today and I wanted to try and see what I could make of it.  I actually wasn't going to make the butterfly into a card but I need more time to work on the other idea/project.  Here is butterfly #61.

I was going for a vintage look with this one.  I distressed the butterflies with Crumb Cake and Basic Black inks.  I used the Illuminate Glimmer Watermark Stampin' Pad again as well on the background.  I have a tiny safety pin from the Vintage Trinkets.  I used the Jewelry Tag punch to punch a little greeting from the Tiny Tags Stamp Set.

One more view for you.

Simple, single layer card for you.  I will probably step this one up at some time as well.  I really like the look of the designer series paper, especially when I distress it with a little ink.  It makes a great simple card.  I hope you enjoyed today's butterfly.  Thanks for stopping by!

Take care,
