A Fairy Tale Behind The Rainbow


Butterfly Music FeatureWelcome to the So Suzy Butterfly Music stamp special. All the Design Team members created stunning cards for this stamp and I hope that you’re going to check out all of them. You might have an idea overload afterwards, but I bet you can channel the energy to create your own amazing card using this stamp. It’s just too gorgeous to pass up 😉

I had to pair it with the quote from Hans Christian Andersen. Even though the quote “Where words fail, music speaks” from Hans Christian Andersen is not from one of his fairy tales, I remember some of his creations and kind of connected this sentiment with my memories of reading fairy tales. And we all know that behind the rainbow is where fairy tales happen.

Ink blending

That’s why I started with a rainbow background for this card. I used a striped stencil and blended 6 different Distress Ink colors using the Clarity Stencil brushes. I wanted to use the Wilted Violet too, but I ended up not having enough space 😛

You might know by now that I love heat embossed sentiments, so I used regular black embossing powder and heat embossed the quote onto a strip of vellum.

I wanted to have a little shine on there, so I brushed some Perfect Pearls on top. Unfortunately, it’s a little hard to see.

I also heat embossed the butterfly onto the rainbow using clear embossing powder.

I wanted it to be like a dream, like something you barely see during everyday life and you really have to focus on it in order to discover the real beauty behind it. Finally, I added the vellum to the card, wrapped a white ribbon around it and adhered it to a white card base.

  1. Subtil und wunderschoen! Taugen diese Buersten was? Besser als Schwaemmchen?

    • Danke 🙂
      Fuer Stencil sind die super. Ich mag sie lieber als die Distress Blender oder Make-Up Schwaemmchen. Fuer Hintergruende ohne Stencil bevorzuge ich allerdings die Distress Ink Blender.
