Renee Zarate's Bolton House is still in New England but Renee herself has moved on to South Carolina. The days are a little different now, no garden to take care of means more studio time. Dealing with snow and blizzards will be a thing of the past but there will be new challenges. Challenges like...how will we ever carry these two chairs and this huge umbrella down to the beach? Stay tuned.

I can't seem to stop making butterfly cards. This one is made from random scraps, it measures 5"x7".
The products used for this quick card are the Alterations die called "Butterflight". It is tucked behind a strip of G45 paper from the "Olde Curiosity Shoppe" line. I punched the bottom of it with my EK punch. The phrase is a Stampotique stamp using Archival Black ink by Ranger. I actually made the paper for the butterflies out of watercolor paper sprayed with Dylusion spray inks that were stamped with random stamps. I make the colored paper first and then use it as a way to clean off my stamps. It serves as a masterboard to make other projects with, that way I don't waste the ink on the stamps.
