CAS Wonderful Wings
Today I am sharing another fairly quick CAS card that I created using an image from the retired Stampin’ Up! Wonderful Wings stamp set along with a sentiment from the current Our Daily Bread Designs, Scripture Collection 4.
I wanted to participate in the Happy Little Stampers July Watercolour Challenge as well as the July CAS Watercolour "Butterfly" Challenge and my second entry for the International Art and Soul #12 "Elements of Nature" Challenge.
If you have not already had a chance to visit the above challenge sites, I hope you will do so- they all have wonderful Design Teams as well as gorgeous inspiration in their galleries.
To create this card:
1). Ink the Wonderful Wings image with Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, stamp onto a piece of Bristol Smooth paper and heat set with the Heat Tool.
2). Create a mask of the image using sticky note paper and mask the butterfly. Using a sponge dauber with Broken China Distress Oxide Ink, stencil the background with the Memory Box™ Modern Chic Chevron stencil. Lightly spritz with water and heat set with the Heat Tool.
3). Watercolor the butterfly with Zig® Clean Color Real Brush Markers- I used Yellow, Blue and Orange. Dry with the Heat Tool and add a shadow with the Pale Gray Marker and darken the body and areas on the wings with the Black Marker. Once you are satisfied with the watercolor, use the Spectrum Noir™ Clear Glitter Pen to add shimmer to the wings. Add a few white highlights to the wings with the Sharpie® Extra Fine White Paint Pen.
5). Trim the panel and mount onto the Basic Black card front before adhering to the white card base.
6). Finish off the card by adding a few Nuvo™ Gloss Black Crystal Drops .
