Watercolor Minis

This card is so soft and pastel that it does not show up extremely well.  The stamp set is SU Water Color Minis.  The branches are double stamped, in both Pink & Green.  The first stamping is full of ink, then you quickly stamp a second time.  The fact that there is so little ink on the stamp, makes it look even softer, almost faded, and gives it a little depth.  A spot has been left blank for a Greeting or Sentiment.  The soft pink butterflies are made using the SU sizzlit, which automatically cuts and embosses a pattern onto the butterfly.  It has 5 or 6 sizes available on one sizzlit and each has a slightly different shape and pattern.  The sentiment area has been edged with a softer green, using a border punch from SU.  Glitter glue was placed lightly over the pink stems.  Tiny pearls on the butterflies finish the card.  A delicate, pretty card.
