The solitary butterfly rode the wind with falling leaves as companions. A blanket of greens and blues from the evening sky enveloped his flight. Lost in his own thought, he enjoyed the summer winds that aided his travel. It wasn’t a journey of necessity, but a flight of abandonment and joy.
I made the above butterfly card just for fun. There was no deadline and there was no theme in mind. I just started stamping free-style with no apparent path. This is what evolved from my afternoon of creating from my mind. It is completely handmade. I didn’t use my Cricut or any computer device. I used my brain, a paper cutter, a corner rounder, some stamps, chalk, and a clear embossing pen and embossing pad. I added a ribbon and some adhesive gems to add some interest. The chalk and embossing ink created a watercolor effect which I would love to explore more in the future. I didn’t use any special chalks either. I just used a couple of cotton swabs and a cheap pack of Crayola chalks I had laying around. The card gives me a dreamy, fairy-like feel so I was inspired to write the above narrative.
