It is the Gift of God
This mainly one layer Mixed Media card was designed using a current set from Stamp Simply, Grace (for the verse sentiment) along with the butterfly image from the retired Wonderful Wings stamp set (Stampin’ Up!).
I wanted to participate with a few online challenges and will be playing along with the Double “D” 08/05“Butterflies” Challenge and the Word Art Wednesday #450- #451 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to check out the above challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
De-static a piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, ink the Wonderful Wings stamp image with Versamark™ ink, stamp onto the prepared cardstock, apply white embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Once the embossing has cooled, color the butterfly with water based markers (gently wipe off the excess ink with a paper towel being careful note to spread the ink beyond the butterfly image).
Create a mask for the butterfly and once the mask is in place, apply broken china distress oxide over the background using a sponge dauber.
Once you are satisfied with the results, apply chipped sapphire distress oxide ink with a sponge dauber using a flourish stencil. Lightly spritz with water and re-apply ink as needed. Dry the background with a heat tool (being careful around the butterfly).
De-static the background below the butterfly with an embossing powder tool, ink the sentiment from Grace (Stamp Simply) with chipped sapphire distress oxide ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Once the embossing has cooled, trim the panel, mount onto midnight cardstock, trim and mount onto a white card base.
Finish off the card by applying shimmer to the butterfly wings using a clear glitter pen.
