Hi and happy hump day peeps,
I have a card to share this afternoon that I made for a new challenge blog. It's the new Color Hues challenge. For their very first challenge, the hues are green and yellow. Very summery.
I pulled out some stencils to make the background of my card. The butterfly stencil is from Simon Says Stamp and the leaves stencil is from Pretty Pink Posh. The butterflies are two hues of yellow, colored using a blending brush. I cleaned the stencil then sponged VersaMark ink over the butterflies and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. Using some Mint Macaron ink, I used a blender brush to color the rest of the panel and then used a microfiber cloth to wipe the ink off the butterflies. I then placed the leaf stencil on and used another blending brush and Just Jade ink to make the first leaf layer. I turned the stencil a quarter turn and added Tranquil Tide ink with a blending brush.
The focal image is a Simon Says Stamp die set. The background is cut from vellum and the words are cut from thick SU Whisper white card stock, three times and glued together. After adding it to the card front, I brushed the letters with a Nuvo clear glitter pen and then covered them with SU Shimmery Crystal Effects. Finally, I added some green and yellow Pretty Pink Posh gems for embellishments.
Here is the inside of the card. The stamps are from the SSS set called Thoughtful Flowers. The images are colored using Prismacolor colored pencils and Gamsol.
Isn't this a great sentiment?!
Thanks for looking in. Have a nice Thursday.
