The More I Love You


I created this card for my soon-to-be new niece Erika. She is such a wonderful person and I absolutely adore her. I thought this was the best sentiment because it's exactly how I feel about her. I found this butterfly on the internet and I loved all the veins in the wings. I printed the butterfly on Crafter's Companion white card stock twice and colored both of them using Spectrum Noir markers. I used 3 colors and a blending technique to get these results. A dark blue, turquoise and yellow. I love the different shades you get when you mix the colors. I cut one of the butterflies out and sprayed it with glitter spray from Crafter's Companion and then mounted it on top of the other butterfly. I then mounted this onto a piece of black card stock and then a white card stock base. I stamped the sentiment underneath the image and then added turquoise goosebump gems from Queen & Co. to the side of the image and in the swirls of the sentiment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
