Butterflies, I think I am hooked at the moment.
Here is another card I made
I think i am still hooked on spiced marmalade and broken china (Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Ink). Just love the combination. They really work together and they make green too.
I like the sketch at STAMPlorations Blog bi-weekly sketch #17 and made another card but highlighting the die cut squares with a black textured paper border. I wanted to keep it simple so I just stamped the butterfly (stamplorations - artful flutters) with watermark ink (versamark) and heat embossing with black (zing - opaque finish) heat embossing powder.
I die cut (mpress 3 in 1 nesting dies) all the squares, positioned them and tacked them together with (x-press it Glue marker). I then squished the two colors onto my craft sheet and spritzed with water. Next I smooched the panel onto the colors and two more times to get the look I liked. Took the squares apart and glued on the black borders except the larger square.
I stamped the sentiment (stamplorations - artful flutters) also with spiced marmalade and broken china using the rolling technique. I then ran the squares and front panel of the base card through a Sizzix splash embossing folder to achieve a textured look to the front of the card.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges :-
