First I would like extend a warm welcome to my newest follower, Alicia O'Bryant. So glad to have you join us here!! : )
My friend Theresa owner of Inky Fingers blog lent me this amazing die from Memory Box. Isn't it exquisite?!!
In response to Danielle Flanders' Make It Monday challenge last week I tried my hand at another card using vellum and some layers. I started with a white card base and layerd a strip of teal polka dot paper on the left. Next I cut a die from PTI Chevron cover plate and layered that on top of my card base. I replaced the white chevron cut outs on only the right side of my card by snipping them in half and gluing them down in the negative white spaces. Then I layered some sheer polka dot vellum over the whole thing sewing it down on my machine and catching in the soft blue ribbon too. I then layered the circle with my sentiment and finally was ready for my butterfly.
To create the butterfly I cut the detailed top layer from solid white cs and then did a watercolor wash on the lower portion of my paper using Island Indigo Ink from SU. I sprayed some of the same Island Indigo ink by rubbing a tooth brush on the ink pad and spraying in on my paper. I stamped some leaf stamps using CTMH sunset ink : ) Finally I cut the bottom portion of the butterfly out and glued it all together!
I think this die so so beautiful you could cut one from an old shoe! and it would still be amazing... : ) hmmm an old shoe... now that sounds like a good way to repurpose an old shoe heeheehee. I can't thank you enough, Theresa, for lending me this beautiful die but I am going to have to buy this one! : )
This card is the 81st one I have made since I started my challenge to create 100 cards in 100 days. : ) I have just 15 days left before my drawing for BLOG CANDY on July 16th. to have a chance to win simply comment on today's post! For all the details see THIS POST.
I have been slow to post these days as it is hard to be indoors when the weather is so nice! but I have several new cards to share this week and even though I have not yet finished making my 100 cards I'm feeling confident I will meet my goal! ... whew!! : )
I hope you are having a spectacular summer! soaking up plenty of Vitamin D and enjoying getting inky!!
