Today I am sharing a fun simple Mixed Media card designed with retired stamps from my massive stash :-) The butterfly image is from the retired Stampin’ Up! Ageless Adornment (hostess set) and the sentiment is from the recently retired Verve Stamps, Scripture Medley 3.
I had this butterfly image already stamped, colored , fussy-cut and layered in my stash and in my recent (and continuing) organization project, I decided to pull out my "stashed" images and create a few cards:-).
I am linking this card to the Try It On Tuesday “Things with Wings” Challenge along with the CAS on Friday #136 “Splash Watercolor” Challenge and the WordArt Wednesday #342-#343 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge galleries yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful ideas and projects by all!
To create this card:
1). De-static a scrap piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the butterfly image with Versafine™ Onyx Black ink onto the prepared cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Once the embossing as cooled, watercolor using ink from water-based markers. Fussy-cut the image, mount onto black cardstock and cut close to the edge.
2). Die cut a piece of white cardstock with a stitched rectangle die. Scribble a bit of green water-based marker onto a silicone craft mat, lightly spritz with water and press the die cut panel into the ink. Lift up and repeat until you are satisfied with the background.
3). De-static the background panel with an embossing powder tool, stamp the verse image with Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, stamp onto a piece of white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Mount the panel onto a piece of black cardstock, trim and mount onto the white card base.
4). Mount the fussy-cut butterfly image with dimensional foam. Add white highlights to the butterfly’s wings using an extra fine white paint pen and use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the wings.
5). Finish off the card with a few jewel drops.
