Watercolor Wings - July Card Class

Hi there

I hope you've had a good weekend - I've had a very productive and social weekend :).  Out for dinner Friday, breakfast with a friend Saturday morning, afternoon tea with my SIL (highly recommend a visit to Olaf's in Mt Eden) and out for dinner again tonight!  In amongst all this social butterflying (not sure if that's a word or not) I've done all my prep for next weekends Creative Inkers Extravaganza and made three cards this afternoon - phew.  You'll have to wait a bit to see these creations but in the meantime here's the first card I taught at this months card class.

I wasn't going to buy 'Watercolor Wings' when I saw the new catalogue - "I don't need another 'butterfly' set" but after seeing some creations on Pinterest I 'needed' to buy it :).  This is the first card I've made with it - based on a card I saw by Julie Davison.

It's classed as a 'two-step' stamp but it's actually a 'three-step' stamp.  The butterfly is made up of three stamps - the first is stamped in Pink Pirouette, then Melon Mambo and finally Rich Razzleberry.

This stamp comes as a bundle with the new Bold Butterfly Framelits but it also matches the Butterflies Thinlits Dies (Page 172 of the AC).  I've used both dies for this card.  We stamped two full images and cut one as a solid butterfly and the other with the 'lacy' die.

I'm sure you'll be seeing more colour combos over the coming months.
