Butterfly Wishes

Welcome back Everyone, today I'm sharing another creation I have made using the Rambling Rose collection from Ultimate Crafts.

I say you can never have enough cards in your collection, so when I get a chance to pump out a handful I do. 
This one unfortunately was destined for a home before I even started.

 For my base card I used one of the Couture Creations card and envelope sets.
After selecting the papers I wanted to use from the Cardmakers Set, I cut my selected papers to 5", 4.5" and 4" squares, distressed the edges and mounted them on to the card base.  
You will notice I mounted them off centre a little further to the right of the card than the left.

Next, I deconstructed one of the Camden Cottage Rose flowers removing the back two layers of petals.  I mixed up my own mists using the Mix & Match Pigment Powders in white and rose.
Firstly I spritzed the deconstructed flower and two of the Tied and Jewelled Florettes (I removed the crystals from the centre) in the white pearlised spritz and then dried it off quickly with my heat gun.  The rose spritz wasn't playing nice and wouldn't work so I had to improvise, so using a small paint brush I painted the edges of the petals with the pearlised spritz and then the centre of the rose.  The picture below is after I had finished 'painting' it with the rose spritz.  I wasn't the happiest with it but once I resprayed it with the white spritz and the pink softened I was happy with the end result.  Once dry I added some of the rose coloured pearls to the centre of each of the smaller roses.

Using the leaf die from the Rambling Rose die set, I die cut 4 lots of leaves.  To emphasise the veins on the leaf I took my white pen and drew them in.

Once I had all the pieces ready I constructed the card.  My sentiment came from the Ephemera pack, which I mounted it on some 3D foam dots. Once in place on the centre right of the card, I attached the flowers to the left of the sentiment.  The leaves were tucked in under the flowers and I added a finishing touch of some white spritzed twine.
