what is it?

Don’t ask me where this die came from as I have no idea and I’ve had it for a long time but rarely used it. For some reason it fell into my hands when I was searching for another item and I decided to do a test cut in white. It reminded me of a butterfly when cut. Then I had the thought that if I cut out with scraps in rainbow colours I could use a Jen McGuire technique and offset them as I put them together. It works for this challenge and it still reminds me of a butterfly but you can decide what you think. The sentiment is from a Hampton Art set and the embellishments are from Trinity stamps. Although you can’t tell from the photo, they are rainbow iridescent pearls.

Our house guests left yesterday and with today being one of those gray dreary ones, apart from a walk with the dog, I’ve stayed in my craft room. Thanks for popping in for a peek.

    1. Thanks, I tried a slightly different way to add the pieces but it was too busy so when I remembered the technique I liked the result.

  1. Johanna… what a wonderful idea on a dreary day…making beautiful cards! Such a creative rainbow… and your die cut does look like a butterfly. Thank you so much for joining and sharing at Just Us Girls this week.

    1. Thanks – I still have the test layer I cut first and I also made some backgrounds last week. I’ve laid it over one of them and like it so another card will probably develop soon.


  2. Thanks for the love and also for giving me the name of the die. I am marking it down for future reference.


  3. That is a very cool die and is perfect for the offset technique. The rainbow colors are beautiful. It does look like a butterfly but could be used in a number of ways.
