I am still making an effort to create cards using some of my older stamp sets.
This Clean and Simple card combines three retired Stampin’ Up! sets- Natural Beauty, God’s Beauty and Botanicals.
This card was quick and easy to create- I heat embossed the butterfly image with clear embossing powder onto a white cardstock panel and once cooled, masked the image before stamping the text image and sentiment using water-based markers. A water brush was used to blend a bit of the color and I used the remaining ink off the silicone mat to create a bit of splatter.
The text image was used on the base and the main image panel was mounted with dimensional foam.
I finished off the card using a clear glitter pen and white gel pen.
I am linking this card to several online challenges- the CAS Colours and Sketches#335 Color Challenge, the Stampin’ Up! Only SUOC230 “Clean and Simple”Challenge and the CAS Watercolour August "Colourful Butterflies" Challenge.
