Shabby Butterflies by Julie Lavalette

Hi Crafty Friends,  Its Julie here today. I'm sharing with you a Shabby Style card with some mixed media on it. It is approximately 5 3/4 inches square in size.

Here is the start of the layers on my card. I cut a square of patterned paper and then placed my Dutch Daisy Border die on with some low tack tape to cut. I used my Distress Tool around the edges and added a couple of scraps of paper which I inked at the edges.I then applied some Texture Paste through a strip of Sequin Waste to act as a Stencil. Once dry I added a little Distress ink to coordinate with the paper.

I used the large and medium die in the Sentiment Tag set, cutting white cardstock and adding a little Distress ink to the larger die before layering up and adding some Stickles around the middle. I then layered onto my Alpine Flourish.

My Butterflies were cut in patterned paper and layered up twice.

Hope you have enjoyed looking at my card and now feel inspired to try this style of card. Good Luck to everyone entering our Weekly Challenge.
