Bunny and Butterflies

Happy Friday!  It's Jeanne today with a card that makes quite a statement and is easy to create as long as you don't mind inky fingers!
I love the intricate silhouette dies.  They just call for a beautiful background!
For this card I used a favorite method.  I wipe Distress Oxide inks on a craft mat, spray with water and dip my mixed media (or water color) paper in the puddles.  I use a heat gun to dry between layers.
The backgrounds always turn out gorgeous and no two are alike.  For this one I started with a piece of paper about 6 x 9 inches and several shades of blue and purple inks.
I cut the background down to 4 1/4 x 5 inches and mounted that to a 4 1/4 x 5 1/4 inch dark purple panel.
Next I cut my images from a piece of pearlized white card stock.
Using paper snips, I cut the butterfly from the eggs.
I glued the Easter die cut to the panel,wrapped ribbon around it and tied a small bow.  Then I adhered it to an A2 card base made from the same pearlized card stock.
I glued down the body of the butterfly and bent the wings up slightly to add dimension.  Finally I added some pearls.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you have a fun, creative weekend!
