Just For You

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I started by dusting a piece of Coconut White Card with an Anti-Static Bag. I stamped one of the leaves from the Woodware Ferns Stamp Set randomly using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Grape Crush Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder. I inked all over with CS Decadent Grape Colour Cloud using a Smoothie. I matted onto Black Card and popped onto a Coconut White Card blank.

I stamped one of the butterflies from the Woodware Mosaic Butterflies Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Black Detail Embossing Powder. I coloured in with a mix of products. I used Seedless Preserves Distress Crayon from Set 2 (I popped some crayon onto my Craft Sheet and picked the colour up with a Water Brush). I lightened the colour by mixing a little CS Candy Pink Pixie Powder with the crayon. I darkened the colourby mixing a little CS Pewter Pixie Powder with the crayon. I cut the butterfly out. I shaped it and glued the body section only to my background. I drew the antenae in using a Black Pigma Micron Pen.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Deco Sayings Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with Grape Crush BS EP. I trimmed it and inked with CS Decadent Grape Colour Cloud. I matted onto Black Card and popped onto my card using CE Mounting Cushion.

Thanks for stopping by.
