I hope your week has started well. It was thick fog outside when I woke up this morning, so I was super happy not to have to go to work in it as I have a few days off work.
I made the stenciled portion of this card at the same time that I made the thank you card that I posted just over a week ago just using different inks.
The distress ink colours I used here were Cracked Pistachio , Shaded Lilac and Picked Raspberry.
I chose some pretty deep pink pearlised cardstock to go with the picked raspberry colour and cut out the love word and then again twice in black cardstock to create a kind of shadow. Of course what I didn't notice until I photographed it was that I should have gone over the white on the side of the pink cardstock (which is one sided), with my pink distress ink, so that the white didn't show. Oh well, I will know for next time won't I, we learn from our mistakes. I wanted a little bit more black in the card to pull in the black on the butterfly, so I added a thin strip to each side of the stenciled panel and then cut another strip on which I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment.
I added another strip of the pink cardstock to the left side. I then added my die cut word, slightly overlapping my sentiment strip and adhered my butterfly.
To finish I added a few sequins in colours that complemented the inks.
I've listed the items used below.
This would make a lovely card for valentine's day, for an anniversary, or just to let someone know how much you care.
That's all for today but there will be lots more from me this week, so stay tuned.
Thanks for visiting!
