I was able to finish and photograph a card for
this month's blog hop at Papertrey Ink.
I love the colours and designs from the inspiration photo:
butterflies, browns and pinks and that create a vintage look.
I started by creating a mask so that I could stamp Text Style
with Kraft ink onto the center of a white card base.
In order to "frame" this circle, I cut a larger circle and
used the negative on the outside and the circle mask
over the text. Using Kraft ink, I sponged a 1/4" frame.
The Canvas Impression Plate was used on the card front.
Two corners were rounded and Vintage Tea Dye ink (Chamomile)
was sponged around the edges. I wish I had used the Kraft ink
along the edges instead, but I will know the next time I use this colour combo!!
The sentiment (Fillable Frames #4) was stamped in Dark Chocolate ink.
The butterfly (Butterfly Dreams) was stamped onto
white card stock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink
and then coloured with copics. I fussy cut the butterfly,
covered it with Versa Mark ink and then clear embossed
it twice to get a shiny effect. I then mounted it onto a
Beautiful Dreams die cut from white card stock.
Brown embroidery floss was added behind the butterfly
to create the antennae. Three brass adhesive dots were
added over the body of the butterfly.
I cut the die 3 more times from Kraft card stock,
coloured the edges with a copic marker and then
layered them over the text circle. The coloured
butterfly was added on top with a thin strip of
foam tape so that the wings would curl out.
