Butterfly Easter card with video tutorial

http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Easter/Spring Inspired".


The weather is getting softer and Spring is almost here! A perfect time to make something Easter / Spring related. I've made a card that consists entirely out of butterflies. I started to cut out butterflies with the Butterfly Frenzy and the Simon Says Stamp Petite Butterflies dies.

  

I sort of stacked the Butterflies on top of each other as a collage. After all the collaging I've applied a first layer of color with Infusions and Mod Podge. Then some more color with Distress Oxide and on top of that more color with Infusions. That combination gives such a beautiful effect.

  

I made the butterfly the Layered Butterfly (thanks, Cathie!) a bit in the Easter colors. Mainly yellow with a little pink so that it fitted nicely with the background. To give the background more depth, I also applied a layer of Nuvo Mousse Pure Platinum.
