Hello, Butterflies…

I’m still playing with the brand new Unity Stamp Company toner card fronts. They are perfect for easy cards. Today, I’m playing with blending on some color and foiling. I love that these toner images are printed on cardstock. You can do so much with them to make your cards sparkle and shine.

Lots of layers upon layer of color, shine and dimension going on in this card.

I started out by building up the color with Distress Inks for the background. The colors I wanted to focus on that were similar to a monarch butterfly and then to create a contrast in the background by adding a hint of blue/green. That just helps those foiled butterflies pop against the background.

Check out the video for the step-by-step low down. I’ll walk you through my process. It is super easy, just takes a bit of time and the proper layering of supplies.

Thanks for joining me today. I hope you are inspired by today’s project. If you create something, I’d love to see it. Join us in the Unity Show & Tell Facebook group to share your card and tag me.
