Fear Not, For I Am With You...
I hope you are having a great week so far! Tonight I am sharing my Mixed Media card that I created for the Splitcoaststampers' Free For All F4A320 “A Striking Combo...Red and Teal” Challenge along with the the FUSION “Orchid Occasions”Challenge (I was inspired by the orchids and the draping of the flowers) and Happy Little Stampers April 2016 Mixed Media "Wings" Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge site galleries yet, again, I highly encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this card:
De-static a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Embossing Buddy®, ink the Choose Happiness flowers using Versamark™ Ink, stamp onto the prepared cardstock, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Black Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
Once the embossing powder has cooled, color the flowers using the AquaPainter™ with ink from the Real Red Classic Ink pad, dry carefully with the Heat Tool, use the Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker to add additional color, spritz with water and allow to dry.
Ink the Timeless Textures grid stamp with Real Red Classic Ink, stamp off and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Ink the flourish stamp from Timeless Textures using Island Indigo Classic Ink, stamp off and stamp onto the background.
Add the Real Red border using the Timeless Textures strip border stamp and add the Island Indigo splatters with the small splatter stamp in the Timeless Textures stamp set.
Ink the sentiment from Rose Wonder with Island Indigo and add to the background panel.
Ink the leaves from Choose Happiness with Versamark™ Ink, stamp onto the background, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Black Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool. Once the leaves cool, color with the Island Indigo Stampin’ Write Marker, spritz with water and dry lightly with the Heat Tool.
Ink the Papillon Potpourri butterfly stamp with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock, add a bit of Island Indigo Classic Ink with an AquaPainter™, dry with the Heat Tool and punch out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch.
Add Clear Wink of Stella® to the wings and darken the edges with a Faber-Castell® Black Pitt Pen marker.
Trim the background panel and mount onto the Whisper White card base using dimensional foam, add the flowers and butterflies to the card front and add white highlights to the flower centers with the Faber-Castell® White Pitt Pen Marker.
Add the Pearls to the center of the butterflies to finish off the card.
