FLUTTER BY WEDNESDAY #226


My friend, Harriet, has made cards using this technique and I love the look of it.  Her card that inspired me to do this was actually a one layer card and the oval was sponged right on to the white card base.  For this card I used the oval which had been cut out for the mask on the example shown at the bottom of this post.  The one below is more like her card.

First, using VersaMark ink I stamped the design onto the oval and then heat embossed with white powder.  Next I sponged the Baja Blue and Old Olive ink over the embossed design.  I took an old white rag and rubbed the ink from the embossing.  Then I simply added that layer to a Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Oval and attached the butterfly with a glue dot. 


The colors are actually darker than this but I could not get the lighting right.  It almost looks like I used a flash and I didn't.    Anyway, this is a technique I will be using a lot more often.  Various color combinations will be very pretty and I think doing the embossing with black will also give a great look.

Thank you for stopping by!

STAMPIN' UP! - Varied Vases #6

The punched vases are from a 6 x 6 package of designer papers and for this card, I just left the flowers without coloring them. Thank...
