This is my 5th and final post of example showing you the Polished Stone Technique! I hope you enjoyed my Video Tutorial, and all 5 of my samples (April 1-5)! :)
Though today's is not my favorite, I still want to show you, because it shows a different way to use the technique. Until this point, I've used it as a backdrop or as a layer. Today...it'll be a focalpoint! :)
It's pretty soft...a little difficult to see...maybe click on the pic for a better view of the butterflies themselves. :)
Like I said, it's not my fave card done with this technique, but I like the idea of it. :) This sweet soft card could be used for a baby, dedication/baptism, little girl's birthday, Happy Spring...oh, the possibilities are endless, really. :)
Instead of using the Polished Stone piece as a backdrop or layer, I punched it out with Stampin' Up's Butterfly Punch! The colors I used are from the Soft Subtles color family: Pretty in Pink, Apricot Appeal, and Barely Banana. I used the Eggcellent Eggs kit (Occasions Mini) for the bodies, and the beautiful pink satin ribbon is from the mini, as well. :) YAY!
I used the SU Big Shot Texturz plate "Perfect Details" for the subtle criss-cross embossed background you see, to make it a little *more* than just plain white. :)
Well, what do you think?
