The wandering thoughts of a senior citizen who loves to make greeting cards.

It's been a long winter for me, but springtime weather is making me feel better. I can't make the cards as in the past because of arthritic hands, but I'm trying. I saw this technique of watercolor lifting on Jennifer McGuire's blog. It took me several tries, but here's the card I finished.

I made the butterfly with foil candy wrap (Hershey's dark chocolate kisses) that I bought last fall. I saved some of the wraps because they were so pretty. I ran a piece of purple cardstock through my old Xyron and used that adhesive to adhere the foil. I then cut it out with a Spellbinders butterfly die. I used Distress ink pads to create the background. You can go to Jennifer's blog to see the video on the technique.
I hope to try this technique a little more because I have several family birthdays coming up.
