CCC11 Vintage Butterfly Friend
I wanted to create a card using the Creative Club Challenge CCC11 Color Challenge and decided to ink up a few stamps that I have had for years, but again, they had not seen ink yet…need to start using up my "stash" of supplies :-)
If you have not had a chance to visit the Challenge site, I hope you will find the time to do so- this is a new challenge for me ( I did not see any particular rules to play)....they have a wonderful Design Team as well as tremendous inspiration from their galleries!!
Using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink, stamp the butterfly and moth image onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Color the butterflies and moths using Stampin’ Write markers- Island Indigo, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Basic Black. Add a few white highlights using the Chalk Marker.
Also stamp another image onto scrap paper or a sticky note- mask the images and ink the background stamp using Early Espresso Classic Ink (this was my fourth color that I could choose to add :-)) and stamp over the masked images.
Using a Sponge Dauber, add Ranger™ Jim Holtz® Old Paper Distress Ink followed with Early Espresso around the edges to ”antique” the paper.
Using Early Espresso Classic Ink, stamp the splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge to add more distressing.
Mount the panel onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock, trim and adhere to a piece of Island Indigo cardstock and add the 3/8” Venetian Crochet Trim along the side.
Stamp the sentiment from Choose Happiness using Early Espresso Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock. Use a Sponge Dauber with Ranger™ Jim Holtz® Old Paper Distress Ink and trim the sentiment into the banner shape (use the Hexagon Punch to create the banner points).
With a Sponge Dauber, add Early Espresso around the edges to ”antique” the paper. Huff onto the Gorgeous Grunge splatter stamp to re-moisten the ink and stamp onto the sentiment layer.
Mount the sentiment onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add the ¼” Island Indigo Triple Satin Ribbon bow along with the Antique Brad.
Mount the panel onto the Early Espresso card base and finish off the card with Pearls in the corners.
