Rainbow and Marble Effects

Today I have 2 cards to share, inspired by the Twofer Card challenge and CAS Watercolour Challenge.

I stamped the background of the first card with the Waffle Flower Marble background stamp. I thought it would be tricky, but once I watched a couple of videos it was easy. I added silver leaf using a glue pen. The Waffle Flower butterfly die cut was covered with Versamark ink and silver embossed a couple of times The inks are from Altenew, the tag die from Mama Elephant and the sentiment die is from Simon Says.

I die cut a tag and liberally brushed a wash of water and then dropped in the colours, letting them blend.
The butterfly die is from Waffle Flower and the sentiment is from Flora and Fauna.

I'm entering the following challenges:-

I'm hoping the black, counts as 'white space'???


  1. Wow - and wow again - stunning cards Jenny, and I love the contrast between the muted silver tones and the vibrant rainbow backgrounds, and their coordinated butterflies.

  2. More beautiful butterflies, Jenny! It's hard to stop at one isn't it?!! Love the shape of this butterfly and it's so elegant in silver! Love that background! The rainbow background is bright and vibrant and a perfect place for the black butterfly to perch! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour!

  3. Two amazing butterfly tag cards Jenny! LOVE that marbled background on your first ... AMAZING! Very elegant with white, black and silver. Your second rainbow tag is gorgeous with the colours and your silhouette butterfly. Black seems to always make the other colours more vibrant. Two gorgeous cards. Thanks for sharing the rainbow card with us at CAS Watercolour. And thank for play along with the Twofer Card Challenge!! xx

  4. Fantastic butterfly cards! The thank you card looks so elegant and classy with the marble background and that neutral color combo! Rainbow colors always make me happy and the ones on your tag make the black butterfly pop! Love it!
    Thank you for joining us at the Twofer!

  5. Two very different butterfly cards and beautiful designs. TFS both, Jenny. So glad you added your rainbow watercolored background card with us at CAS Watercolour. Hugs

  6. You've made another set of beautiful butterfly Twofer cards, Jenny! Thank you for your enthusiasm and support! I love this pair, too! That marble background looks prezackly like marble, wow, and your double-embossed silvery butterfly is outstanding backed by the silver tag and little bow! Likewise, I love the tag and bow design of your rainbow background card where the black outline butterfly takes center stage!! Hugs, Darnell
