[Uniko Studio] June 2014 Release - Introducing English Country Garden - Butterflies

Hi everyone - if you're stumbling onto this blog post, we are in the midst of our Uniko Studio release and we're introducing the second of four sets being released this month.

I really am loving this set. Just by its name it sounds divine: English Country Garden - Butterflies. Bev has released a pretty lovely Butterfly set and die in the past, but this one has some fantastic details. It has three butterfly images, and a lovely phrase. All the girls on the design team are already begging for the matching dies.


I decided to pull out the biggest butterfly image and stamp the image on Versamark on vellum. And embossed it in white. I kind of had a stained glass in mind, and here is the finished product.

Happy Birthday

Then I pulled some inks out and went to town coloring this little butterfly. I also dropped some Heidi Swapp Gold color shine onto white rustic card stock. Here is an up close picture of the butterfly and I may like how it came out ;)

Happy Birthday

I decided to adhere the butterfly onto a strip of scrap pattern paper and Moonlight Lavender card stock. (I will eventually remember from which collection this came from, and will update the supplies list.) The panel is then adhered on a white card stock made with gold washi strips. 

Here is a work in progress with the washi gold strip background.

Happy Birthday

A quick tip: I lined my first washi strip across the longest diagonal line. Then I worked from the middle towards the outside one strip at a time. This ensures that my strips are straight and at the right angle.

Happy Birthday

Hope you liked this little card. We will be back tomorrow for another preview of another set being released. See you then?

This is beautiful Ren-Yi, a clever idea for the washi tape, and the butterfly is so delicate and pretty.
