Greetings, finally I am getting a bit of time to work on some challenge cards. Today's card is made for two challenges. The design and photo inspiration are from Muse#83, and I have used several new to my stash items, the two butterfly dies, the stamp set, and I am trying those offset geometric panels for the first time and for that I am entering this the Die Cut Diva's September Challenge New Things.
First I cut the butterfly background from watercolor paper (Canson), I wet it down and lightly tapped some water off. Then I smoohsed ink from Distress Ink pads (picked raspberry and barn door) on my craft sheet and added them to the butterfly base with a paint brush. Next the black outline butterfly was cut.
While everything was drying I cut the two panels, and embossed the white one with a Lifestyle embossing folder (Springtime set of 2). I then layerd them to the card base (Stampin Up-Strawberry Slush). Lastly, I heat embossed on vellum the sentiment from Jillybean Soup (handwritten sentiments) using Versafine Onyx Black ink and clear embossing powder. I adhered this to the front panels with tiny bits of tombow glue behind the big letters.
Lastly two pearls were colored black with a sharpie and the butterfly was assembled and attached to the card with 1/8 inch foam dots.
Thanks for stopping by!
