Holly Brown: Bands of Color Butterfly


Hi Junkies!  It's Holly posting today, and the Technique of the Week is Bands of Color from the April/May 2013 issue.  This is a great technique for backgrounds and I've gone with a spring-y pastel color combo today.  I used the Bands of Color technique on the white background and then I used my square Spellbinders dies to cut out a piece in the middle so my focal piece would match up with the bands in the background.  The butterfly and sentiment are from Stampin Up and I added a couple of small pearls to the center of the butterfly.

I hope you try this fun and easy technique and share your artwork with us over on the Technique Junkies Yahoo group.  If you are not a member of the Yahoo group, please contact Pat Huntoon for details on joining.  :-)

I really love how you used the bands on the layer as well as the background. Great idea.
