Hi, I enjoyed getting very inky with this card!
I was inspired by the challenge over at Inkspirational where the theme is to CASE this fabulous card.
I love Ellen's card and she has a link to an amazing wax resist technique for her background. I've got wax paper and glossy cardstock on my shopping list!!
As a substitute I used a background stamp I borrowed called Weathered by Stampin Up. (I think that's what it's called, thanks for the loan Amanda :))
I stamped in Versafine and clear embossed. Then blended distress inks in shades of yellow and orange.
The butterfly is coloured with Prismacolor pencils and blended with Odorless Mineral Spirit and a paper stump.
I diecut the greenery from snippets of green card and cut and pieced it to create the tendril shapes I wanted.
So I'm visiting the playground again at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.
At Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, the DT are celebrating their third anniversary, almost, and a move to their new site with the theme of Celebrate. Congratulations!
At Cuttlebug Mania, the challenge is to use a manual die cutting machine like a Big Shot ( I have a cuttlebug), and any die or embossing folder to create a project with the theme of Fun in the Sun. These yellows, blues and greens remind me of a sunny day in the garden.
Materials used: Stampin Up Weathered stamp; Memory Box Cocoa Bean butterfly stamp; and Madeira Corner die; distress inks; prismacolor pencils; bling and sentiment sticker from stash.
Thanks for visiting :)
