Good Morning Creatives!
Today is another beautiful day with Butterbee Scraps and today I am taking metals to a whole new level!
I recently made the BRIGHT ATC cards using some altered playing cards I had laying around.

Small Bronze Butterfly Metal Filigree
Color Splash Stickers
Silks Acrylic Glaze in: Jasmine, Guatemalan Green, Sky Blue and Spiced Pumpkin
Hemp (Cavas Corp)
Start by choosing your base. I had these altered playing cards laying around so I decided to use them.
Choose your metal shapes.
Cover them with Gesso. This will allow your Silks to have a more vibrant color and adhere to your surface better.
Next paint all of them with fun, bright colors!
Keep going and have fun! I added multiple colors to some of my metals.
Allow them to dry completely before layering them on your cards.
Here are close-ups of the completed cards.
This is my favorite element on both of them:
I have been taking a little time out of the studio to hang with my kids here at the beginning of summer and boy…have I missed getting my hands dirty.
I hope today has inspired you to try something new and to smile with courage…even if you don’t feel it.
Have an amazing day.
