Hi everyone! Today was a gorgeous Spring day. The weather was a little warmer today and suppose to be nice all week. For once there is good weather for those on Spring break. :-). To celebrate I had to make another Spring card. I love this butterfly image. I think of all the butterfly images I have this is my favorite. While looking for images to use with my used dryer sheet background I thought this would be perfect.
The butterfly image is a Dover clipart free sample. It was worth the time it took me last year to trace the image in Silhouette Studio and then to trace the butterfly so it could be cut out separately. The image and butterfly are edged with Vintage Photo ink to give definition. The butterfly is pop dotted on the card for dimension.
So there you have it one less used dryer sheet in the landfill. I don't use dryer sheets all that often in my dryer but it is nice to know that when I do I can use them in a project.
My crackle project crackled a little bit but it looks like I needed to have used a heavier layer of glue. I did get an interesting background and plan to take some pictures of the process when I do it again and then finish a card using the background I made yesterday. The fun thing about this is that no two pieces turn out exactly the same. In the meantime I plan to take advantage of this week of gorgeous weather that is in the forecast. Who knows I may get out and take more photos.
Thank you for stopping by and do come back. Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
