CAS Butterflies- A Sketch, Theme and Color Challenge
I had a chance to create a few quick cards this evening/morning and for this card, I decided to use Sandy's PP291 CAS Butterflies Challenge at The Paper Players along with the CYCI#116 Sketch Challenge at Can You Case It? and the Splitcoaststampers’ CC566 Color Challenge for inspiration.
To create this card:
I used the Smakin' Acetate Technique to create the background panel- cut up one side of a clear envelope (or transparency sheet), open like a book and gently press the Melon Mambo Classic Ink Pad directly onto the acetate (not the whole pad only partial areas).
Add the Pretty In Pink "ink" with the Stampin’ Write Marker (I was too lazy to go into my “stock” craft room to get the ink pad :-))
Press the envelope sides back together, press down to smoosh the ink around a bit, re-open the envelope and lay a piece of Whisper White cardstock down onto the ink on one side of the envelope.
Press another piece of Whisper White cardstock into the ink on the other side of the envelope and set aside for a future project (love that this technique gives you two backgrounds).
Once the ink has dried, ink the sentiment from the Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) Scripture Collection 9 using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto the panel.
Add a few splatters using the small splatter stamp from Timeless Textures with Melon Mambo Classic Ink and Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink.
Use the Big Shot™ with the My Favorite Things® Blueprints 13 Stitched Rectangle Die to cut out the panel and mount onto the Whisper White card base with dimensional foam.
De-static a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Embossing Buddy® and stamp the butterflies from Papillon Potpourri with Versamark™ Ink.
Apply Stampin’ Emboss® Black Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
Color the butterflies with the Stampin’ Write Pumpkin Pie Marker and use the Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Marker to add shadows to the center of the wings.
Punch out the butterflies with the Elegant Butterfly Punch and adhere to the card front.
To finish off the card add antennas to the butterflies with an XS Faber-Castell® Black Pitt Pen Marker.
