MIX65 Swallowtail Prayers
Hi Again Stampers!
Here is my final card for theSplitcoaststampers MIX65 Challenge- Back to Kindergarten (using crayons) and used the crayon rubbed embossing technique on this card as well as the colors from the CCMC300 Create with Connie and Mary Challenge (although I did not link this card in the CCMC300 challenge since I used a non-SU! lace).
I hope you will have the time to check out the gallery at both sites- again, so much talent and inspiration!!
To create this card:
Using the crayon rubbed embossing technique (here is the link to the forum and the technique videos), open the retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and place a piece of Whisper White cardstock on top of the raised portion of the folder. Rub the White Crayon over the cardstock (press firmly) and use a brayer to apply Calypso Coral Classic Ink.
Use a paper towel to rub the ink off the crayon areas, use a Sponge Dauber first with Crumb Cake Classic Ink, rub off the ink and use a Sponge Dauber with Basic Gray Classic Ink (rubbing the ink off again with a dry paper towel).
Ink the En Francais stamp using Basic Gray Classic Ink and stamp over the background. Wipe off the excess ink using a dry paper towel.
Layer onto the Basic Gray card base and add the sentiment (from a previously printed sentiment from My Digitial Studio and layered with the 1 ¼” Circle Punch), the crochet lace trim with the embossed piece of Basic Gray cardstock (embossed with the Big Shot™ and the retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder). Add a few Pearls to the bottom area of the sentiment (hard to see in the photo) :-)
Color the Swallowtail image using Stampin’ Write markers- Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake and Basic Gray. Use a Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker to accent the dark areas and the Chalk Marker to highlight some of the areas of the wings.
Add the Swallowtail image using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.
