That Folder with Butterflies

I finally got "that" folder as it is called by everyone on Facebook. It is such a beautiful folder and had to be special ordered as it came with one of those English card making magazines, Papercraft Essentials #122. There have been so many beautiful cards made with this folder by others and I knew I couldn't possible make anything so elegant. So, in my normal fashion, I played with the folder. I used a different folder for the top portion with all the little butterflies. I used Dylusion Ink pads to do the background on top of some white embossing. The bottom was rubbed over with inks as well. I made two of the die cut butterflies. The bottom one has the same inks over it to make a shadow. the butterfly is popped up. I used the watercolor technique with the ink pad to color the borders and the circles. Finally, a bit of Wink of Stella was added to the large butterfly.
