Happy Birthday Butterfly

Hi there,

we are starting a new Color Challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations today. I just heard that Create a Smile will be the sponsor when the card was already done. I would have loved to use one of Christine's fantastic stamp sets.

  • cut out a heart from chipboard using the Sizzix Heartfelt die
  • cover the heart with gesso and - after this layer has dried - add Distress Crackle Paint (Brushed Pewter) - let this dry thoroughly
  • stamp one of the Altenew Painted Butterflies directly onto the stitched card panel using Altenew Crisp Ink (Midnight Violet, Deep Iris, Lavender Fields)
  • mask off a strip and apply Altenew Crisp Ink (Peach Perfect) with a Mini Ink Blending Tool
  • ink up the edges of the panel with that same peach ink
  • create a sentiment strip with the help of the Altenew Label Love stamp set and Hero Hearts Shadow Ink (Silver) - I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment three times until I got the impression I was aiming for
  • create a background strip by applying Altenew Crisp Ink (Lavender Fields) directly to a strip of white cardstock
  • adhere the sentiment cluster using foam adhesive

Come and get it Challenge #116 - Make your own Embellishment
