I am back again with some more STAMPlorations Inspirations. My first card today is what I call a tidy-my-desk card. It is made up of bits and bobs that were still floating about from earlier projects I made, that is including the inks. I made my second card before this one.
Where do I start? Well, I was playing with the ARTplorations Honeycomb Delight Reversed Stencil first sponging in yellow and then slightly offset in green. I then stamped the net like looking stamp from the Mixed Media Grunge set in yellow all over before adding the barcode border in green and spritzing with water. Once dry, I added a strip of designer paper, stamped the chevrons and blended the edges with copper and dark brown ink. For my tag I did some more stamping in dark brown and green and white embossing using stamps from the Mixed Media Grunge set. I then added a branch, some leaves, die cut vellum heart with sentiment from the Blossom Overture set, a piece of burlap, flowers and sequins to finish.
I am entering my card at:
Scribble and Scrap - Anything Goes
Sisters of Craft - Anything Goes
Crafts Galore Encore - Anything Goes
I think using a hint of green to highlight the butterfly shapes gives this card an ethereal feel. This card was also a good 'warm up' for me, STAMPlorations will have another Stencil Blog Hop in a couple of week's time starting 25th May ... off to get my thinking hat on ...
I am entering this card at:
Crafty Calendar - Things with wings
CASology - Shape
Inkspirational - Space
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes, optional: make it feminine
