I decided to try something different for this card. A couple days ago, I was inspired by Gina K's tutorial of Crayon Resist. So after MANY attempts and just about all day working on this, I settled to resist on the single butterfly from Verve's Thankful Blossoms . It is kinda hard to see it on the pretty swirly butterfly, but it's there! The butterfly is sponged with barely banana in the center and working out I then used celery and then cameo coral. I used lots of stickles on the butterfly as well.
The striped image panels were made using my oldy but goody, Simple Stripes BG. I just love that backgrounder!! Stamped in PTI's colors Sweet Blush and Spring Moss respectively. I originally thought I would put dew drops around the entire oval, but ended up liking them being used for the butterfly trail instead. I added a clear dew drop in the center of the green button to bring some continuity to the embellishments. The top background panel was run thru the cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder and the bottom panel is PTI's Pink Patterns DP.
At that point, the card still wasn't quite where I wanted it to be, so I added some piercing (when in doubt -PIERCE I say!) and striped organdy ribbon (another fav of mine!). So, after 3 hours, and an entire scrap bag full of crayon resist disasters, I finally like this!!
