Flutterbies for Your Flowers - New Release!

It is official! WooHoo! I am now a member of Tracey's Design Team! Here is my very first card made as one of the DT Members.

The Flutterbies are one of Tracey's (Fred, She Said) new releases that is being released today. She is also having a Challenge using a Digi Freebie (with Prizes!), so be sure to check out her Blog! I layered the backing paper over one of mine and gave it more of a "gold" color by doing some "tweeking" with different layers and adjustments. I colored the 3-D Flutterby in Photoshop and used Aleene's Tack-it Over & Over brushed on thinly to coat the top Flutterby, then covered with Glamour Dust. I put a piece of clear tape behind the antenae before I cut them out, so they could be "free" without worry of tearing. It is hard to see in the picture, but I also added a bit of Amber Satin Colorbox Ink around the edge of the Flutterbies backing paper and on the top layer of the Big Dahlia using a Large Scruffy Brush from Donna Dewberry to enhance the gold of the card. This card was made for a Golden Wedding Anniversary.

Here is a closer look at the Flutterby.
