Pansy Punch Art for PPA87

This is another version of my previous pansy card but I used Summer Sun ribbon instead of Lavender Lace. The pansies were made with the Extra Large Butterfly Punch cut out of Shimmer White cardstock. Thus my entry for Pals Paper Arts Punch challenge. I video tutorial by Dawn Olchefske helped me create the pansies. This is her blog and you will have to navigate to find her You Tube video tutorial called Butterfly Pansies Punch Art. Hope you have as much fun as I have making these easy little spring flowers. Happy Spring...I think! (It snowed here yesterday!!)

Pretty Pansies

I have wanted to make these little pansies and just got the Butterfly Extra Large Punch. After punching out some butterflies, I placed them on a thick layer of paper towels. Then I spritzed them heavily with water. With my Aqua Painter I picked up a drop of Lavender Lace reinker and dropped onto the outside of the butterflies. I then used another Aqua Painter and pulled out a drop of Summer Sun reinker and placed in the middle of the butterflies. All the color flows together. After they dried, I used a Black Stampin Marker and drew the stamens. 2 butterflies are put together with a rhinestone brad. This card uses Newsprint DSP for my background and some died satin ribbon in Lavender Lace. Can't wait to try some other colors for my pansies!
