Oldie but a Goodie Challenge - 2 November 2010
Over at the Oldie but a Goodie Challenge this fortnight the topic distressing. I have used a Papermania stamp that I have had I think for well more than six months - it's one where you can build yourself a butterfly. I thought I'd use it a lot but haven't so I thought it was time for it to come out to play.
I have stamped the image with Potters Clay Memento and then coloured in with Promarkers/Copics and then highlighted some areas with my Sakura Stardust clear pen to add some sparkle and glitter. The backing papers are from the Artylicious Butterfly Bliss CD - and yes I did print them out as I had no papers in the stash suitable as I wanted an orange, gold, red and yellow colour scheme. I have distressed the edges with a chalk ink pad. Next I stamped the butterfly again on paper, cut it out, sprayed with the Crafter's Companion Stick and Spray and placed this over the stamped/coloured in butterfly as a mask. I then used my new Inkylicious colour dusters to make the background with Tim Holtz's Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade distress ink pads. I found them easy to hold and use and a better effect will come with practice but I am happy with my first attempt. The card has then been made into an easel card and embellished with a sentiment off the computer, some of the background paper butterflies decoupaged up and some gold card candy.
This card also fits the following challenges:
Flutter by Wednesday - Open theme
Lots to Do - Autumnal colours
