Burst of color

Hello! Diana here with another butterfly card.  I just love these dies  and I couldn't resist something really colorful.  Foiling is very trendy now but if you don't have the materials, foil papers are a great alternative.  Here I used a combination of Jewel Tones foil paper as well as Metal foil papers from Spellbinders with the PoppyStamps Delaney Butterfly.  I wanted the butterflies to have a backing but not too solid so I used the PoppyStamps Cheviot Butterfly with vellum.  I sponged the vellum to match the foil - going darker along the edges.  The background was made with Open Scroll Leaf by Impression Obsession cut twice from a green watercolor wash.  The white panel behind was embossed with a Darice Chevron embossing folder.  I also added some clear dew drops.
