Butterfly, Baby & Distress
It's Friday again, and time to show you some cards I made! I started off being a mini-album gal and now, every week, I'm making some cards instead. I'd like to start making more layouts and other mixed media projects too. Look out for those soon ;)
This week, I challenged myself to make three very different cards - using different stamp sets, card sizes, techniques & theme. Also, since I couldn't choose my top 3 favorites for the DT Call - hosted by Jenn & Trish from the Sister Act Card Challenge .. I decided to make 3 new ones! :) It's my first ever application to be on a DT team and I'm elated but up for a challenge.
First up, a fly free card :)
I used my favorite butterfly stamp set "moment by moment" to create a pop on the clouds background. I have stamped the background in 2 ink tones and put some on foam adhesives. I also colored in the butterfly with some distress markers (my favorite at this moment!). Then I grounded the card with some washi at the top & bottom. The brads were added to the sentiment piece to add some texture & color.
My second card is a baby girl card.
I decided to do a square card for this, with a window & a frame popped up by some foam adhesive. I paper pieced the girl's dress and stamped the sentiment on a sticker with archival ink. I added some resin roses too coz those are just so pretty, don't you think? :)
And my final card is going for the distressed look.
I have had this set for quite some time and I finally had an idea on how to use it :) I used mainly distress inks and even distressed the edge of the paper. I was pretty happy with the outcome.
I know I should have been making a green card this week but oh well. Something different, eh?
Happy St Patrick's Day everybody! ;)
