White on white card

The latest contest theme at Hero Arts is wedding or congratulatory cards 
and the technique is watercoloring. I'm trying to use some of my "older" stamps 
that have never touched any ink before I invest in some new stamps. Yay, me!


I'm entering this card that came together rather quickly, mainly because it only
uses one stamp--Hero Arts' Traditional Butterfly.  I first embossed the butterflies
onto vellum, but they turned out a little wonky from the heat, so I chose ivory cardstock.




I cut out the card and frame with Reverse Wonky Rectangles and embossed with Tim Holtz' Texture Fades folder which reminds me of a screen. The leaves are Sizzlits from Stampin Up and I added pearls on the butterflies and the background.


I wish that I made this card for our daughter's wedding. I didn't plan well and had to resort to a (gasp!) Hallmark card instead. Maybe I'll save this for their one year anniversary...

Thanks, always, for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!




Stamp: Hero Arts
Cardstock: Stampin Up
Ink: Versamark
Other: Judi Kins pastel embossing powder, Spellbinders dies, Stampin Up leaf die, Tim Holtz Texture Fades folder, dimensional adhesive, pearls

  4. Oh wow, this card is so delightfully exquisite, Donna! Elegant eye-candy all dressed in white! I've just been attempting to take in all the perfect details and as always I'm so amazed at your fabulous talent. I love that you gave an older stamp a little playtime, I think we all have stamps that need a little more attention. Thanks for a wonderful post, my friend.

  27. Gorgeous card! I came here from the Hero Arts blog (congrats on being one of the June winners) and had to laugh when you say that you wished you had made this card for your daughters wedding. I wished I had seen this post before as I too had to resort to a Hallmark for my son's wedding as well!
