Hero Arts Digital Kit: Papillons - Vintage Cards!

Hey everybody! I'm back today with a super fun and easy set of vintage-style butterfly cards. Over the last few months Hero Arts has been release digital papers and kits with their releases. There have been some really fun ones but I think this new Papillons Digital Kit is my favorite to date (and at just $4.99 it is a screaming deal!). Now, I was a little worried if I'd be able to use the kit or not because I don't have any fancy editing software. I shouldn't have worried because I was easily able to use this kit with Word. I downloaded the kit and then I just dragged the images into a blank word document and resized them how I pleased.

There are a variety of images that come with the kit, some are single butterflies, some are multiple butterflies, some have writing and some don't, etc... You can add them and arrange them and size them however you like. The kit does come with paintbrushes.... I do think you need software (maybe Adobe?) to use those, however, they were not necessary for this kit to be be absolutely phenomenal!

For these cards I decided to go for a vintage look and I printed the images out in color (yes, color! I didn't even have to color them-but you can print them inn black in white and color if you want to) on some vintage looking printer paper I had in my office. I cut them down to A2 sized papers and used Sand Core ink to ink blend around the edges. Then I used Sand ink, black ink and Gold Glimmer Metallic ink to splatter the background (the splatters are subtle and don't show up well in the pictures.

I wanted to glam the butterflies up a little so I used a paint brush to paint on some Gold Glimmer Metallic Ink. You can kind of see this in this pictures. I took a quick video of this to share but somehow I deleted it (sorry). To finish my cards off I glued the beautiful Papillon papers to Ivory Cardbases. These were fun, easy and make such a sweet little card set.
