This afternoon I've made a card for four challenges:
Less is More Week 144 - Dark Background with a Splash of Colour
Casology Week 68 - Black
Addicted to Stamps and More #69 - Clean and Simple
CAS-ual Fridays 119 - Embossing
I recently purchased a lovely butterfly stencil from eBay and decided to use the same technique as I used on this card, but this time with a black background instead of white.
Apologies for the bad photography, I'd lost the daylight so had to use my daylight lamp...
I attached the brass stencil to the black cardstock with low tack tape and used translucent embossing paste which I spread over the design. Once the stencil was carefully removed, I covered different sections of the butterfly in three different colours of fine glitter. The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark and embossed with white embossing powder.
- Brass butterfly stencil: unknown brand
- Embossing paste: Dreamweaver - translucent
- Stamp: Personal Impressions - Mix and Match
- Embossing powder: Stampin' Up - White
- Die: Clearly Besotted Stamps - Tag Along
- Glitter and cardstock from stash
That's all from me today. I'm off out for a meal tonight at a local Mexican restaurant, can't wait :)
