I pulled out a Memory Box butterfly die cut I have had for a long time! Perfect for what I had in mind!
To create this card I first cut a panel from watercolor paper using a silly stitched die cut from Lil Inker Designs. I then took some distress inks and splattered the panel until I got the color combo I wanted. I then cut the solid butterfly out of the same paper and added color with the same inks. Then I added ink to another piece and then cut the open butterfly from it.
I cut the butterfly body from black paper and added glossy accents to the body. The tag is cut out of watercolor paper, using Simon Says Stamp dress up a tag die set. Of course pretty sequins for sparkle.
Here are the Distress colors I used:
And that's it! Remember to dream everyday! Great words to live by! Thanks for stopping!
See you next time! - Barb
Todays cards are birthday cards I made for two of my co workers who share a birthday today! The first card is for Dayle. She love horses so I colored the pony image to loosely resemble her pony! It's her 29th birthday, so I couldn't resist using my new number die cuts!
This adorable stamp is from Whipper Snapper. The number die cuts are from Sugar Pea Designs. Silly Stitched dies are from Lil Inker Designs. Image is colored with colored pencil. Sequins for sparkle.
Next is Linda's card. For this card I used the adorable Fairy set from Lawn Fawn.
I cut the tag (Simon Says Stamp) out of watercolor paper then stamped the images. I watercolored and used a little Wink of Stella marker. Silly stitched dies give a little texture.
Some pretty sequins from Pretty Pink Posh add some sparkle!
I have really fallen in love with this company! The have so many fun sketch challenges, I have to buy some more of their stamps! lol
Here is my card for the challenge:
I used the set Pizza my heart. I stamped the image in Picked Raspberry Distress ink. The Pizza slices I colored directly onto the stamp with Tombow markers and stamped them. Background paper is some I have had in my stash for a while - not sure who's paper it is.
Stitched circle dies are My Favorite Things, frame die is Lil Inker Designs Stitched mats. I don't know which company the the little flags are from. Sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh. I almost tossed this card in the garbage- lol. I am my own worst critic. Glad I didn't - it kind of grew on my and now I don't think it's that bad.
For my card I used die cuts from Lil Inker Designs. Word bubbles and Stitched Mats. The word stamps are also from Lil Inker Designs.
I had this yearning to use kraft paper today. I really like how it goes with the olive color!
Sequins give just the right amount of bling to this card. They are quickly becoming my favorite embelishment!
Sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh. Thanks for checking out my blog today! I'd love it if you left me a comment! See you next time!
Stamps are from Unity Stamps. I love this Stinking Cute set! It just too cute! I used distress inks and an old Hero Art shadow stamp for the stripes. Lil Inker Designs Die cuts - Silly stitched dies - one of my favorite sets!
I colored the poop with my Wink of Stella markers.
Some nice bright Distress inks! Thanks for visiting today!
