Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy ALMOST Friday!

In this weekly segment, one of the Confetti Crew designers will have the camera on both themselves, as a designer, and on their Reverse Confetti creations.
For this round each of our designers are showcasing unique ways to use Confetti Cuts dies.
A couple of things to note:
1) This segment will not “air” if there is a different post scheduled for that day, such as Sketch for You to Try on the 1st of each month or on a hop or sneak peek day.
2) Each designer will follow the same theme until we have featured every Confetti Crew Design Team Member (then it’s a new round with new questions/theme).
Up in the spotlight today is AUDREY TOKACH…

To create my card, I started off by watercoloring a background using pan watercolors in shades of blue and green. Then I added some black watercolor splatters for an artsy feel. When the background was dry, I trimmed it down to 4″ x 5.25″.  I positioned the largest butterfly die from the Butterfly Dreams Confetti Cuts die set on the background where I wanted it, using low tack tape to hold it in place.

My intention was to diecut the butterfly wings, but leave the center of the butterfly intact.  I ran the die through my machine once to cut the left wing, placing my top plate exactly where I wanted the die to stop cutting.  Then I repeated this step for the right wing by running the die through my machine a second time.  This time I moved the plate slightly so that there is about 1/8″ in the center of the butterfly that remained uncut.  This allows me to achieve awesome dimension without having to use any foam tape or extra layers.

All I did was fold up each wing gently.  Before folding up the wings, I stamped several line images from the Whole Lotta Thanks stamp set in the center of the butterfly.  The dotted line from the set was stamped in Midnight ink, and the solid line from the set was stamped in Lagoon ink.  I wanted these lines to make it look as though the body of the butterfly was stitched in place with a sewing machine.  Since I can’t sew, this is a great alternative for me!  Below the butterfly, I stamped a sentiment from the Whole Lotta Thanks stamp set in Midnight ink.  For added interest behind the butterfly, I added a piece of black and white patterned paper from the Every Little Bit 6×6 paper pad, and then adhered the panel to an A2 card base cut from Midnight cardstock.  To finish things off, I added a scattering of black sequins.
