Beautiful Butterfly Card

For today's card, I decided to use an old technique that's super easy, adds as much color as you want, and really makes your image POP!  



Aren't these colors gorgeous together?  I have always loved Blackberry Bliss and Pretty Peacock has been a favorite since it was released.  I can't believe I never thought to pair them up until I saw them used together in the Magic in This Night Designer Series Paper (p. 53 of the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog). Perfect combo!

The Basic Gray cardstock is cut to 8.5"x5.5" and scored at 4.25"  
The Whisper White cardstock is 3" square
The butterflies were stamped on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock 



To create the background on the square piece of whisper white cardstock, I used sponge daubers with Blackberry Bliss and Pretty Peacock.  I did "stamp off" a couple of times before sponging to keep the background from getting too dark.  



I added a little color, using the same sponge daubers, to the inside of the card.  :)

I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did!  Happy Stamping!
