Here’s a video showing you all the cards close-up with descriptions of what I did:
Here’s my first card:
In this card, I heat embossed the butterfly using some silver pearl embossing powder. I used Tim Holtz Distress ink in Broken China, Mustard Seed and Picked Raspberry and a Tim Holtz Mini Ink Blending tool to add color through a stencil. I have piles of these things that I just do not use enough! The white-silver embossing resists the distress ink. Suck a pretty effect. I then stamped a sentiment and added some lace, ribbon and bling. The solid paper border is from Celebra’tions Assorted Solids.
Here’s my second card:
In this card, I used paper from Heartfelt Creations Birds and Blooms. Such pretty paper! I used the Tim Holtz Mini Ink Blending tool to add Tim Holtz Distress ink in Cracked Pistachio and Broken China directly to the stamp. I then stamped onto Vellum and fussy cut a few out. The pearls cover the glue dots. I added some lace, ribbons and pearls. I love that dimensional butterfly, don’t you?
Here’s my third card:
On this card, I daubered Tim Holtz distress paint in Picket Fence onto white cardstock. I then used the Tim Holtz Mini Ink Blending tool to add Broken China and Cracked Pistachio ink. Again, the distress paint acts as a resist. I think VERY lightly sprayed water to make it have a dapple effect. I stamped the butterfly (using Celebra’tions Ink in Berry Black) onto vellum and colored the back of the butterfly. I added the sentiment, some lace and ribbons and some sequins.
And my final card for today:
In this card, again, I used a stencil and the Tim Holtz Mini Ink Blending tool this time with Cracked Pistachio, Chipped Sapphire and Dusty Concord. I stamped the butterflies and heat embossed them with black powder. I colored the images with the same colors as the background. I added the sentiment, some lace, ribbon, twine and a button.
