Life So Big

Hello, friends!  Welcome to our first post in June! 

 It's a little odd but I happen to love rainy weather.  I LOVE it.  It can rain seven days straight and I actually feel a bit sad that the sun shines on the eighth day. I know, really quirky, right?  Even though I love the rain I can appreciate a warm, sunny day and one of the things I love about the summer months is watching butterflies.  There is something so peaceful about watching them flit and flutter.  Butterflies are also among my favorite themes for my paper projects!  

Today I am featuring Life So Big from Red Rubber Designs.  
For my project, I chose the largest of the three beautiful stamps included in the set.  I kept my card clean and simple by stamping on the base of the card leaving lots of "white" space.  I colored the butterfly on the base of the card then stamped, colored, and fussy cut another butterfly layer.  I adhered the left wing and body to the base but added foam dots under the right wing for dimension!

For a bit of sparkle, I added Wink of Stella to the butterfly.

For the finishing touch I added twine at the top and tied a knot.

I hope this inspires you to get crafty!  Thanks so much for stopping by Red Rubber Designs Blog today!
