Another card made by “shopping my stash”, which is forcing me to be more creative and I’m loving it! The background is the result of playing with Winsor & Newton watercolour paints on Crafters Companion watercolour card, inspired by this card created by Heather Telford. I painted a few fine lines with ArtQuest Micacolor paints, which I’ve had for years but hardly ever used.
The layout is based on this sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches. I stamped the Indigo Blu butterfly in Versamark & embossed it with Wow! silver embossing powder, then cut the frame by hand from American Crafts cardstock. The greeting (by Paula Pascual) was stamped onto parchment paper in Versamark, then Memento Grape Jelly, so I could emboss it with Stampendous detail clear powder.I added a few sequins to hide the glue holding the parchment paper in place. I also added a little bit of glue behind the greeting.
Despite it being a very dull day, this card was VERY difficult to photograph! I’m also entering this into the following challenges:
- Artistic Stamper: “Anything Goes”, challenge ends 31st January
- Fantasy Stampers: “Happy Birthday”, challenge ends 16th January
