Summer Silhouettes- An Assortment, Color and Sketch Challenge :-)

Hi Stampers! 

This card was created using the As You See It AYSI083 Assortment Challenge along with the CMCC67 Colour Me! Challenge and Friday Mashup! FM205 Challenge (used the sketch only).

I hope you will have the time to check out all of the linked sites- fantastic Design Teams and galleries!

To create this card:

Ink the stem image from Summer Silhouettes using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp three times onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Ink the leaves using Pistachio Pudding Classic Ink and repeatedly stamp around the stems (stamping off as you repeat).

Stamp the flower tops using Blushing Bride, repeat with Rose Red Classic Ink and stamp the border using Rose Red Classic Ink.

Ink the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Sahara Sand Classic Ink to  add distressing and cut the entire image out using the Big Shot™ with the Circle Collection Framelits™ (cutting a circle from Rose Red cardstock as well).

Add additional “antiquing” using a Sponge Dauber with Sahara Sand Classic Ink  and mount onto the Rose Red circle.

Use the Distressing Tool to carefully distress the edges of Typeset Designer Series Paper (DSP)- this paper is very thin and the tool can be a bit rough on the edges :-)

Apply Sahara Sand Classic Ink to the edges and interior of the DSP, mount onto a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock, sponge additional Sahara Sand Classic Ink onto the Blushing Bride cardstock and adhere the focal image circle to the card front.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Chevron Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a scrap piece of Pistachio Pudding cardstock, use the Sponge Dauber to apply Sahara Sand Classic Ink to the edges (and embossing) and mount onto a piece of Rose Red cardstock.

Add the crochet lace trim to the bottom and adhere to the card front.

Use the Bow Builder Punch to create a bow from Rose Red cardstock.  Add a strip of Rose Red cardstock to the embossed layer and add the bow.

Stamp the sentiment with Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, sponge the edges and add the splatter with Sahara Sand Classic Ink.

Stamp the butterflies with Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto a retired piece of Blushing Bride DSP, punch out with the Elegant and Small Butterfly Punches and mount onto the card front.

To finish off the card and for the shiny element of the ASYI083 Assortment Challenge- add the Pearls to the butterfly centers as well as the upper and lower corners of the card and add the Antique Brad to the center of the bow. 

Stamp Sets: Summer Silhouettes, Papillon Potpourri, Gorgeous Grunge, retired Express Yourself (hostess set)

Ink:  Memento™ Tuxedo Black, Blushing Bride, Pistachio Pudding, Rose Red, Sahara Sand; Stampin’ Write Marker- Sahara Sand

Paper:  Whisper White, Blushing Bride, Pistachio Pudding, Rose Red, Typeset Specialty DSP, retired Blushing Bride DSP

Accessories: Big Shot™, Circle Collection Framelits™, Chevron Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Distressing Tool, Punches- Elegant Butterfly, Small Butterfly, Hexagon (for the sentiment banner points), Bow Builder; Sponge Dauber, Pearls, Antique Brad, crochet lace from my stash
