Floral Butterfly Card- Five Stamps and Four Punches
I wanted to share another card that I created using the DD92 Bold and Cheery Colors ofMidnight Muse and Rose Red along with the Card Concept#4 Floral Challenge and the LOVEFEST2014H Heartfelt Greetings Challenge at Splitcoaststampers.
Again, if you have not already visited their sites, I hope you will find the time to do so since inspiration truly abounds!
I decided to get back to basics a bit with this card- watercolor, sponging, punching and tearing (did not even use the Big Shot™ at all :-))
To create this card:
Use the AquaPainter™ to apply a light coat of Rose Red Classic Ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock in a random sweep pattern. Allow to dry and stamp the Off the Grid and Gorgeous Grunge stamps using Midnight Muse Classic Ink.
Stamp a few flowers from Petite Petals using Midnight Muse Classic Ink and create a mask for the flowers using cardstock or a sticky note. Mask the first flower, re-ink the stampo with Midnight Muse Classic Ink and stamp the second flower, re-mask, re-ink and continue to add flowers to the background.
Tear the edge of the paper on a diagonal and use a Sponge Dauber to add Midnight Muse Classic Ink to the edges. Adhere to a piece of Whisper White cardstock approx. 4” x 5 ¼”.
Stamp the sentiment from Love and Sympathy in the corner using Midnight Muse Classic Ink and stamp the Petite Petals (do not re-ink the flower stamp, just huff to re-moisten the ink from the step above, stamp the first flower, mask and stamp again).
Add a bit of Rose Red ink to the edge using a Sponge Dauber and mount the entire panel onto a piece of Rose Red cardstock and again onto the Midnight Muse card base.
Stamp the butterfly image from Papillon Potpourri three times onto Whisper White cardstock , punch out using the Elegant Butterfly Punch and adhere to the card front.
Create the paper bow using the Large Oval Punch- punch two Large Ovals from Midnight Muse cardstock, curl with the Bone Folder, adhere to create the bow loops, add to a scrap strip of Midnight Muse cardstock and add the two tails (banner points created with the Hexagon Punch).
Stamp an additional flower using the Petite Petals stamp with Midnight Muse Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, punch out using the Petite Petals Punch and adhere to the center of the paper bow.
Add Pearls to the center of the flowers and butterflies to finish off the card.
