Birthday Card ► Majo

Good morning, dear crafty friends.

Today I'd like to show you a birthday card I made for a close friend. 

I stuck to her favorite colors and decided since it's her 60th birthday, it should be something special. I know she adores butterflies, so of course I used one on the card.

I started by applying gesso with a stencil.

I added Distress Spray Stain in different colors, making sure to dry each layer in between. I wiped the paint off the raised parts.

After I stamped my sentiment, I added more stamping on the background for some texture. 

I cut the butterfly with a Sizzix Movers & Shapers die and applied the same colors Distress Spray Stain. After distressing the edges I adhered it with glue dots. In order to let the butterfly have some antennas, I used a butterfly stamp, which I then covered with the die cut. 

 Here are some close ups of the background ....

I adhered the panel to a black card base with miracle tape.

I have used the following stamps:
