Welcome to the #175 May Flowers Challenge at The Card Concept!
I love this beautiful floral arrangement and was inspired by the colors in the challenge photo to create a Mixed Media card.
As I have mentioned in previous posts, I have a personal goal to create cards using stamps and supplies that I already own (and have not inked up in a while) as well as a card for each of the over 900 Splitcoaststampers’ Sketch Challenges (I was able to incorporate Sketch #SC362 into the design of this card).For the main image, I pulled out the butterfly image from the retired Stampin’ Up! set, Ageless Adornments and the script image from the retired Stampin’ Up! Botanicals and paired it with a verse sentiment from the Scripture Collection 2 stamp setDivinity Designs LLC).
To create this card:
Using a brayer, apply Peach Parfait and Melon Mambo to a piece of Glossy White cardstock.
Once the ink has dried on the glossy panel, de-static with an embossing powder tool, ink the butterfly image with Versafine™ Black Onyx ink, stamp onto the prepared panel, apply Clear Embossing Powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Once cooled, trim close to the edge of the stamped image, mount onto a piece of black cardstock and trim close to the edge.
Use a stencil brush with a Flourish stencil to apply Peach Parfait and Melon Mambo onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.
Trim the stenciled panel to approx. 4” x 5 ¼”, de-static the lower right hand corner with an embossing powder tool, stamp the Scripture stamp from Scripture Collection with Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool.
Trim a piece of the patterned Kirby Teesdale designer paper to approx. 2 ¼” x 2 ¼”. Mount onto black cardstock and adhere directly to the top of the background panel (per the sketch).
Ink the script image from Botanicals with Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, repeatedly stamp over the background panel and the designer paper.
Add a strip of 1 ¼” black satin ribbon over the cut edge of the upper panel, wrap the ends of the ribbon behind the panel.
Adhere the panel to a white card base.
Adhere the butterfly image to the card front with dimensional foam and add a few pearls to the ribbon layer along with the upper left hand corner of the designer paper layer and the lower right hand corner of the background panel.
Use a white gel pen to add a few white highlights to the butterfly image to finish off the card.
