As promised, I'm back with another card which I made last night.
It's been a gorgeous sunny week in my part of the world so I decided to make a bright and summery card, using a few challenges as my inspiration. I also used a new stamp I bought at the Sincerely Yours Papercraft Show last weekend, this beautiful butterfly.
I stamped the butterfly in VersaMark on some watercolour paper and heat embossed in white. I then watercoloured the remaining parts of the butterfly, and the surrounding area using Distress Inks. I used a pierced die to cut out the square which I then mounted on 3D foam. Then I stamped the sentiment in a co-ordinating colour and also mounted this strip on 3D foam.
- Stamps: IndigoBlu (Dinkies range) - Flutterby; Clearly Besotted - Sunshine & Smiles (sentiment)
- Ink: VersaMark; Distress Inks - Shaded Lilac, Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn and Mustard Seed; Versa Color - Peony
- Embossing Powder: Wow! - Opaque Bright White
- Die: MFT Die-namics - Pierced Square Stax
I would like to link up at the following challenges:
The Card Concept - Challenge #37 - The Butterfly Effect (clean and layered style)
Fusion - Bright Butterfly (just using the photo as my inspiration)
Papertake Weekly - Ohh So Pretty
I may be back with more later although I really must do some housework today. Although I've been off work this past week the weather has been so nice I've been out and about so the chores have taken a back seat!
I'll definitely be back tomorrow though when I'll be sharing some exciting news! ;)
