If there is one die that I just can’t live without, it’s the Butterfly Drift by Simon Says Stamp. I’ve used it previously on this project, and it’s one of the most watched videos on my YouTube channel. I hope that you’ll like today’s project, which is much easier, just as much.
Since I am craving some happy feelings, I went for rainbow colors. Rainbows are always good! And thanks to the coloring mediums we all have (no matter if they are Copics, watercolors, pencils, or just simply crayons) we can create a rainbow effect easily.
When creating a rainbow effect yourself, you can also choose how you want it to look. Maybe you like fresh, citrus-cy colors more? Then begin with greens and yellow and work your way through the rainbow. Or maybe you want more focus on pinks? It’s all up to you.
Since the die-cuts are very plain, even after you colored them, you can add fine details with a pen, and interesting highlights with a white dot pattern (if you use very bright colors only, you can add dots in black for additional contrast). I also used some Wink of Stella (clear) to add a nice shimmer to the butterflies. It’s not obvious, but when you tilt the card in the light, you can see it and it’s gorgeous.
Last but not least, I opted for a very simple sentiment, curtesy of Altenew, and some enamel accents from Create a Smile stamps. In addition to the simple striped paper strip on the side, it’s all you need to create a happy card that will hopefully put a smile on its recipient’s face.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you got inspired!
