One Layer Wonder-Butterfly Kisses

 Hello friends!

Hope you are well. It has been a while since I made an one layer card. 

This time I am using this Butterfly Kisses Stamp Set. It is still FREE today with every order over Altenew.


 I intended to stamp one butterfly with one color, but as I went along, it didn't go as planned.


When I stamped the first 4 butteries (from top to center), the images were all crisp and clear.

However, when I stamped the last two (at the bottom), the card stock slightly shifted in the MISTI. I realized that I made a boo-boo!


I didn't want to start over, so I resorted to stamp nearly all the butterflies slightly off as if it is flying. I really really like how this turned out.

For the extra drama, I added black and gold splatter. I also painted the butterflies antennas with  (Antique Gold ) Metallic  Watercolor Pan Set. This metallic set really is handy if you do not own any metallic watercolor.  You can see the shine with this photo (taken under more sunlight).

Love the butterfly card. I like the look of the slightly off butterflies. It does look like they are flying. The metallic gold on the butterflies is a wonderful touch as is the gold splatters. This is a very cool card! said...

This is gorgeous! I think it's clever
to be able to stamp a one layer card,
without any added or layered embellishments!

Gorgeous rainbow color of butterflies on your OLC and LOVE the "save" of stamping a second time just a bit off from the first stamping, gives such movement.

I would never have guessed you didn't do the butterflies like this on purpose. They look awesome.
