Hello and welcome back, Joy here with you today!  I have a big and bold butterfly to share with you, using the Just Butterflies digital stamp set.  This stamp comes with 2 images and four sentiments, but I only used one today.


I sized the Just Butterflies image to take up the majority of a 3.75 x 5 inch card panel in Adobe Photoshop Elements with part of the wings “hanging off” the page. That’s one thing I love about digital stamps is that I have the creative freedom to manipulate the images to fit my projects. I colored the image with Karin Brushmarker Pro markers, taking advantage of the wells that the laser printer creates. Once happy with the butterfly, I heat set the water colored butterfly and started on the background. To get the loose water colored effect, I carefully spritzed the area and applied my teal marker directly to the paper letting the water carry the color. Isn’t that an oxymoron to carefully get a loose color? Hmm?  I’d love to know if you like the big bold print of the Just Butterflies image?

To finish off my big bold butterfly card , I trimmed the panel and matted it. I also wanted a little more texture so I embossed the card panel, leaving a tone on tone effect. My last few touches were to add bubble heart stickers from my stash.

Okay I think that pretty much sums up this beautiful, but easy to create cards. I hope this inspires you to take a look at the Joy Clair Designs Shop today!
