Life Is Good- A Color and Sketch Challenge
I had a chance to play in my craft room today and decided to create a card using the FMS172 Sketch at Freshly Made Sketches along with the Pals Paper Arts PPA238 Color Challenge.
Again, if you not have already visited either site yet, I hope you will find the time to do so- wonderful ideas from all!
To create this Mixed Media Clean and Layered (CAL) card:
Using My Digital Studio (MDS) position the Swallowtail butterfly image and re-size to a bit smaller than the actual size of the background stamp. Print out onto Whisper White cardstock.
Color the butterfly using Stampin’ Write Markers- Pink Pirouette, Rose Red and Basic Gray. Apply Frost White Shimmer Paint over the wings using a watercolor brush with a bit of water.
Allow to dry and re-define the black areas using a Faber-Castell Medium Pitt Pen Black marker and add a few highlights with a Faber-Castell Pitt Pen White marker.
Carefully cut out the butterfly and apply Mod Podge® over the entire butterfly image- set aside to dry.
Trim a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 4” x 5 ¼” and add the retired Eastern Elegance rub-on to the upper right hand corner.
Add a piece of Heart and Soul Collection Designer Paper (ODBD) to a layer of Basic Gray cardstock and adhere the vertical rub-on over the center. Mount to the card front for the horizontal strip per the sketch.
Mount the panel onto a piece of Rose Red cardstock, trim and mount onto the Basic Gray card front.
Add the butterfly using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.
