Sadly, I don't own any Lindy's products...but I do have a clear Wink of Stella, so that is gonna have to suffice! I broke out a fun old die from Tim Holtz (I guess I'm still in a Tim Holtz frame of mind from a couple of weeks ago). And crafted up this fluttering beauty of a card!
I started out by die-cutting out butterflies (with the Butterfly Frenzy Die) out of the cardstock background panel and adhering the panel to the card front with foam tape to pop it off the base a bit. I scribbled some Distress Markers (more Tim Holtz product) onto a separate piece of watercolor paper, then did a water wash over my scribbles to blend the colors. After it was all dry, I die cut out my flutter of butterflies...arranged them in sort of rainbow order and adhered them to the background. Next, I brushed Wink of Stella over each butterfly and on the face of the card in the negative spaces that remained after I removed all the butterfly die cut pieces.
To finish it off, I added a scattering of iridescent sequins and a die-cut sentiment from Avery Elle.
If you hold the open card up to a light source, the cut-out butterflies on the background become illuminated. It's quite lovely. I tried to take a photo of that effect...but it didn't turn out that hot...but you get the gist!
OH - EM - GEE.....I just realized, I didn't use any colored pencils on this. SHUT THE FRONT DOOR. Man, I hope they don't get mad at me like they did the last time I used another coloring medium. They got so torqued, they went on vacation for 2 weeks...and didn't send me a postcard (they claimed they had nothing to write with).
