Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't been around for a bit. I was away this past weekend on a shopping trip to Bangor, ME. Had a great time and got a lot of crafty goodies, some clothes and some things for our bathroom renovation (tiles, grout, new bathroom fan). :-). Anyway, I've got a card to share today that I'm quite pleased with the results.
I decided to try the embossing paste with a stencil (mini circles by The Crafter's Workshop). Unfortunately, I didn't have any embossing paste so I looked around my craft area and my gaze landed upon some textured snow. Probably not what they intended it be used for but I figured couldn't hurt to try. And it worked just fine! It has a subtle glitter too but it's impossible to see it in the picture. Then I used a digi image of a butterfly (Floppy Latte's Digital Designs) which I coloured with my Spectrum Noir markers (OR2, CT3, GB5, True Black) and then fussy cut out. You see how the butterfly looks all fuzzy and velvety? I added some black flocking powder to the black parts of the butterfly. Not too difficult using a Zig fine tip glue pen. I wanted it to seem like a real butterfly. Then I added a little white banner with a sentiment (STAMPlorations) and a die cut from a scrap of metallic green cardstock. I attached the butterfly with some glossy accents only on the body part so the wings would be lifted.
I'm linking up to the following challenges:
Addicted to CAS - code word is TEXTURE.
Addicted to Stamps and More - it's "make your mark" this week. Use markers, pencils etc.
Curtain Call - "something simple".
Paper Crafting Challenges - use stencils.
Hope you are having the same fantastic weather where you are that we are having here! Thanks for stopping by! :-)
