One Layer Butterfly Card

Happy Hump Day everyone, I hope you’re having a fantastic week so far!

This was something I made for a One Layer Card competition some years ago (and won recognition for) and I thought I would share it with you…One Layer Butterfly Card
Starting off with a diddy 4×4 card I stamped a butterfly motif using a free stamp from Creative Stamper in Versamark and then heat embossed with black embossing powder. Then, using a mixture of Broken Glass, Milled Lavender and Picket Fence Distress Stains, I created a messy, splodgy background over and around the butterfly, wiping off the excess ink from the embossed areas. Next, I unscrewed the top off a bottle of  Lilac Night mica spray from Carole’s Craft and flicked the tube end across the card to create flecks of colour.

I also coloured in the butterfly with Wisteria and Frost Blue Aquamarkers to add definition and bring out the colours a little bit more.
I then stamped a sentiment from Stampendous in StazOn and added lilac adhesive pearls to finish off the card.
I was actually a little bit dubious of this card to start with as I’m a bit of a perfectionist and was worried about getting the perfect ‘splodge’ (whatever that is). But as I kept going with it I actually ended up making something I really like. The more I look at it the more I like it!
