Butterfly thank you
Hello! I had a lot of fun making this card. I wanted something colourful and ombre – hence this card was born! It uses this small Penny Black butterfly die that I had to run through my die cutting machine 18 times. But I had an idea and I had to go with it!
I coloured each butterfly with 3 colours of Copic marker – it wasn’t hard at all. After I had die cut 3 butterflies, I put them back into the negative space and coloured them quickly. To help me line them up, I drew a grid on the white panel, then erased it once they were adhered.
