Quick And Easy Cards - Part 2

Hi folks, I'm back to share another quick and easy card made using another Distress Oxide Spray background along with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Geo SpringtimeThinlits, Stampers Anonymous Simple Sayings and Simon Says Stamp Love Die.
I created the background by spritzing Distress Watercolor card with Victorian Velvet Distress Oxide Spray, dried with my heat tool, spritzed with Dried Marigold and Cracked Pistachio, spritzed with water, dried again and repeated the process to add layers of the colours. I inked one of the images from Tim Holtz/StampersAnonymous Scrollwork with Victorian Velvet Distress Oxide ink and stamped randomly on the background.
I die-cut the panel using the script die from Simon Says Stamp Love and set it to one side
I lined up the shadow Love die, held in place with washi tape and die-cut
I used my Tim Holtz Craft Pick to create holes for faux stitching, die-cut 2 butterflies from black Classic Kraft Stock sanded to reveal the kraft core using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Geo Springtime Thinlits. I fixed one butterfly flat to the panel using Distress Collage Medium and the other, only applying adhesive to the body section to create dimension.
I used a Sakura Black Micron pen to add the faux stitching
I coloured white self adhesive pearls from my stash by painting with Tim Holtz/Ranger Enchanted Alcohol Pearl ink and fixed to the body section of the butterfly and randomly on the panel. I matted the panel on to an A2 white card blank covered with Black Classic Kraftstock and fixed the script Love die-cut into the negative space using Distress Collage Medium Matte. To complete the sentiment I inked "with" from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Simple Sayings with Black Soot Archival and stamped on the panel.

I'll be back tomorrow to share the third card in the trio of Quick and Easy Cards, in the meantime, have fun with whatever you are creating.
Toodle-oo for now
