Lovely Wishes Butterfly Basics Card


Hi Friends! Today's card is one I made for a dear friend of mine who's celebrating a birthday next week. I chose to use "Lovely Wishes" and "Butterfly Basics" stamp sets for her card. I truly 'played' with the card - just going with the flow, without any idea how it would end up. I'm actually quite pleased with the end result and I sure enjoyed the creative process!
 
I used my markers to ink the stamps, spritzing with water, before stamping on the Whisper White card stock. I also used my aqua painter to add more colour to the flowers.  "Timeless Textures" was used to add some random 'splatters'. Then I ran the stamped layer through my Big Shot with the Hexagon 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Crumb Cake was lightly sponged on the edges as well as on the front. 

Supplies Used:

Remember, both "Lovely Wishes" and the "Butterfly Basics" stamp sets will be retired at the end of this month! If you don't already have these stamps and want them, be sure to order them while you still can to avoid disappointment.

One of my favourite cards. This is truly beautiful and your girlfriend is definitely going to go crazy over it.

By the way, I just won a $100 gift certificate to Paper-Garden.ca for peer votes for my Mother's Day card. Neat, eh?

Thanks for your comments Beth - I always appreciate them so much. Would you believe I almost didn't post this card because I didn't think it was good enough? But the more I looked at it, I decided I DID like it after all! Congratulations on your awesome prize, by the way! That's awesome!

Hi Tina, I love this card and want to try to duplicate it. It looks like you may have used a background stamp before stamping the flowers and leaves. I see you said you used Timeless Textures, but did you do that before or after stamping the flowers? I LOVE your work! Inspiring.

Hello Ceresa! I used the 'honeycomb' stamp from Butterfly Basics in the background, as well as the 'splatter' image from timeless textures and I added this after I stamped the flowers and leaves. So glad you liked this card - I almost wasn't going to post it on my blog! Have fun stamping your card!!! ~ Tina
