I folded over my first piece to make the card base. The background was created using Magicals paint on bubble wrap. The paint was quickly absorbed by the paper. For the next layer I wanted a deckled edge. Want to know an easy way to achieve this?
Using a paint brush add a line of water to the paper. Once it is soaked in, gently pull the paper apart at the line.
Create a butterfly using the casting mold. Once you have made your pulp, pour it through a strainer. Pat pulp into image and press with finger to remove water. Make sure the pulp is in every nook and cranny. Use a sponge to remove even more water and finally a paper towel. Remove and let dry. Arnold Grummer has a wonderful variety of casting molds
I finished the card with a gem and cameo.
I think this will brighten her day!
Maybe you know someone who could use a message of friendship or cheer. By brightening their day you will also brighten yours!!
