Life is Beautiful-Big Cosmos, Big Announcement

Today I have an exciting announcement to make! I’m one of the newest mixed media card artists at The Mixed Media Card Challenge.  I’ll be joining the mixed media card challenge design team beginning in July. To celebrate the announcement today I made a bunch of butterfly cards. I had a lot of fun making all sorts of different ones!

Here is one of the Mixed Media bunch:IMG_6543edited2

I used a free/prize digi stamp from Stamplorations which I enlarged &  printed on heavy card-stock.

For this card I also used a Shower of Flutters – ARTplorations Stencil. IMG_6460edited2I sponged a variety of SU! blues and greens through the stencil, moving it slightly to create an overlapped butterfly background.IMG_6535edited

I’m going to play this at FUSION’s {Bright Butterfly}. IMG_6536edited2The sentiment is from a prize stamp set that I won over at Word Art Wednesday from Gloria, Close to My Heart Consultant. Thanks Karen and Gloria! I’m going to play this card over at WAW Challenge #188!
