Butterfly Moments (Cornish Heritage Farms) ♥

The butterfly counts not months but moments,
and has time enough.

Hi friends ♥
Today's post is celebrating butterflies ~ for two reasons!
Today is the day the Calendar Girls launch our monthly cards
with a chosen theme.  This month, our hostess Linda,
asked us to create a card with butterflies - that's it, just butterflies!
Since that was the theme for my card, and today is also the day
the Cornish Heritage Farms DT post our bi-weekly challenge cards,
I knew the direction I wanted to go with my card ♥
Irit is our hostess this week and gave us this challenge ~
to use 3 different craft/coloring mediums on our cards.
Wow!

 
For my card today, I started with a butterfly digi image from CHF -
they not only carry a delicious variety of rubber stamps but
digital stamps as well, some of them as low as .99c!
I printed the digi on watercolor paper
so the Tattered Angels glimmer mist would stick the best (medium #1)
I colored the butterfly with both primsacolor markers in light shades
and outlined it with a watercolor colored pencil in white (medium #2).
Lastly, I brought my acrylic white paint out and painted over a piece of
corrugated cardboard I had on hand for the background piece (medium #3).
 
I've also added another CHF sentiment to the inside of the card
along with the small section of cardboard that was extra from the front.
I am all about using leftovers in crafting!
This sentiment can be found in the shop, too :)
 

Be sure to stop in and see what the rest of the Calendar Girls
have created with their Butterflies cards - you can find them
in my sidebar ......
 
And be sure to see what the Cornish Heritage Farms DT has made,
and you can find them listed in my sidebar!
That's a lot of inspiration right there!
If you upload your CHF cards using 3 craft mediums to a gallery
like Splitcoaststampers, please use the keyword  CHF58.

Thanks for stopping by today! 
Big Hugs, Bigger Blessings!
