Beautiful Birthday

Hello there, today I have a card to share using the Hero Arts Color Layering Butterflies stamp set. As the name suggests, the stamp set uses different layers to build up details on the butterflies but I wanted to show that you can just use the one layer and they are still pretty!

I started off by cutting a panel of white cardstock using one the Rectangle Infinity Dies. I then stamped the sentiment from the Birthday messages set using Intense Black Ink. The butterflies were stamped using Soft Pool ink for the bottom one, Soft Yellow for the middle one and Soft pink for the top one. I kept them as one solid colour but they would look nice using the Ombre inks too!
I took an A2 white card base and added a piece of patterned paper from the MFT Sweet Celebration Paper Pad to the front panel. The butterfly panel was then added on top with foam tape. To finish off, I added Tonic Nuvo Jewel Drops in Sea Breeze, Lemoncello and Rose Water. I think the Jewel Drops may be my favourite drops in the collection, I love that they are transparent.
