So it's time for another challenge over at The Stamp Man which this time is Anything goes with Summer colours.
For my project I've made an 8" x 8" card, which is a first, I've wanted to have a go for ages. It definitely puts a different spin on your design... there's so much more space!
I started with the background which is covered with Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint DI then I've stamped the butterflies from the Tim Holtz Papillon stamp set in Archival Olive green. The five panels were all covered with Distress Stains Wild Honey. On two of them I stamped using the Aspects of Design Butterfly Beauties using Archival Coffee. I've also used the mini mask from the Florets set and sponged more Wild Honey DI over it. The two embossed panels are made using the Cuttlebug EF Bloom Dots and a Quickutz EF. I've then used the Wild Honey DI direct to paper method. The flower is made using the Tim Holtz Tattered Flower die and I've cut it from card that's been 'swooshed' in re-inker blobs that have been sprayed with water. I've also used crinoline for a couple of the layers that have been coloured with Distress Stains Wild Honey.
The swirls are cut using the Mini Flourish die and the ticket is stamped with a stamp from the Stuff to Say set. The small flowers are cut using the Tattered Flowers die from shrink plastic. I've then covered them with acrylic paint, let it dry and stamped the centre with the small flower from the Aspects of Design set, punched a hole and then shrunk them ! The die cut butterfly is a left over from a class I did at the wonderful LB Crafts. The ribbon is made from seam binding that I've sprayed with re-inker mixed with water.
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
