Hello again for today! I said I was in the mood for a blue card to go with the blueberries we ate this morning...and here it is! I used Splitcoast challenge SC166 http://www.splitcoaststampers.com look for the layout idea. This card came together easy since the layout was already out there.
I used my Priceless stamp set. What a nice set! The butterflies were stamped in Craft White ink. I used Beate's chalkboard effect for the butterflies. http://beate.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/ Check out her blog! It is AWESOME. I messed up the butterfly on the right a little and the effect was lost. I thought I would go over the chalk with Versamark pen and then emboss the whole image. The colors of the chalk were then lost....however! I did like how the butterfly image had an outlined look. So I outined the other butterfly with the Versamark pen, and colored in the details as well (with the versamark pen). That really helped the butterfly "pop". The colors I chose for this card are Blue Bayou (Prints DSP too), Chocolate Chip and Whisper White. I used my Photo Corner punch (again!), Double Stitched Blue Bayou ribbon, and the Distress Tool for some of the edges.
Let me know what you think! Hope you like!
