Floral Filler Butterflies
Today's colours are from Create with Connie and Mary. I wasn't sure what direction I was going to go in with this combo; there are so many possibilities. The colours are Rich Razzleberry, Lucky Limeade, and Pumpkin Pie. I saw Halloween, Fall, last take at Summer - totally cool combo!
Initially when I embossed these glossy butterflies with the Floral Fillers I thought I'd swirl each of the colours on them as we do with the embossing resist technique; but I opted for leaving each level it's own colour and like how it turned out. The little banner is cut from the Petal Cone die. I distressed the paper fibers by pulling the Bone Folder over it like you do to curl ribbon. That made it easier to "billow" across the bottom.
I can't believe tomorrow is Friday already - this week has gone by quickly - amazing what going back to work does to time! Be sure to check back tomorrow - I've been keeping a secret and am so excited I can finally tell tomorrow!
Thanks for stopping by today - Hope your September is off to a great start!
