Can you believe this card started off with butterflies? LOL. Anyway here are the challenges:
I enjoy having both of these sites to offer challenges out each week. They definitely get me thinking and creating. I saw the stamp sets for CTMH’s Constant Campaign and thought “let’s use one of these”.So I created my backgrounds by randomly stamping different stamps from the set to create the “birthday” card feel. I distressed the edges with a sponge and the ink pad.
Did my layering. When looking at the pennant, decided it needed more character and distressed it with a sanding block.
Then I realized the butterfly look was out and thought let’s use watercolor to continue the more distressed, lighter look of the card. I contemplated getting out the watercolor paints and then decided to use a quick and easy method of doing water color.
After my paper dried, I stamped my sentiment and created some faux stitching with my journal pen.
Love the soft look/background for the sentiment. Sets of the black ink and sentiment well. Be sure to check out September Giveaways at the $50.00 and $100 purchase levels!!
