CAS Love & Sympathy- Another Card for the Fusion 2 Challenge :-)

Hi again Stampers!

Here is the second card that I created for this week’s Fusion #2 Card Challenge- this card was a quick and easy to create using their fabulous inspiration photo.
Again, if you have not had the time to stop by their site yet, I would encourage you to do so—they have a very talented Design Team and numerous entries for additional inspiration!!   
To create this card:
Using Masking Tape, apply the tape (sticky side down) unto the So Saffron Classic Ink pad and then onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Repeat with the tape being applied to the cardstock at a different angle. 
Lightly ink the Musical Score background stamp using Basic Gray Classic Ink and apply randomly over the So Saffron inked area.
Create two masks for the flowers using sticky notes and stamp the floral images in a spray (masking so the edges will not overlap). 
Add a bit of distressing with the Gorgeous Grunge splatter and line stamp (inked with Basic Gray Classic Ink) and a few shadows to the flowers using the Stampin’ Write Sahara Sand marker.
Use the So Saffron Stampin’ Write marker to add color to the flower petals and the Chalk Marker to add a few highlights to the flower center and petals.
Stamp the sentiment from Love & Sympathy using Basic Gray Classic Ink, trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Basic Gray Cardstock.  Add to the Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Stamp three butterflies from Papillon Potpourri using Basic Black Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punch out using the corresponding Elegant Butterfly Punch.  Adhere to the card front- for finishing touches, add Pearls to the bodies of the butterfly and corner of the card. 
Stamp Sets: Papillon Potpourri, Petite Petals, Love & Sympathy, Gorgeous Grunge, Musical Score background
Ink: Basic Black, Basic Gray, So Saffron; Stampin’ Write Marker- So Saffron, Sahara Sand; Chalk Marker
Paper/Cardstock:  Whisper White, Basic Gray
Accessories: Elegant Butterfly Punch, Pearls, Masking Tape

Thanks again for stopping by!  Have a wonderful Tuesday!!
