How’s It Going, Friend?

Hello there. I am hosting the new challenge at Cardz 4 Galz, and I chose the theme of ‘Things With Wings’. I chose a very broad subject matter, leaving the choice of what things with wings you wanted to use – as long as it’s towards the girlie genre – you’re good. Here is my card:

The blue background is a water-colour smooshing technique using Distress Inks. It seems to have got a little contaminated with yellow on the edge – but I think it adds a certain interest – and I liked the over-all colour so much I used it anyway.

The square blue butterfly is a die from Simon says stamp, which was cut out of the main panel – I gutted the base blue card, as they say, and the same goes for the blue under the sentiment.

The white card base is one from a previous virtual class, using a Simon Says Stamp red rubber background stamp, where we were heat embossing and then ink smooshing – but this panel was left without anything doing to it, so I used it here as the flowery base for the butterfly.

So – ink smooshed base layer, white heat embossed flower layer, and then the sentiment and butterfly for another layer – and yet it seems so CAS still to me.

I hope you can come and join us with our ‘Things With Wings’ challenge – I look forward to seeing where your creativity takes you. xx

  1. Very pretty card. Love the tone-on-tone effect of the white flowery background panel. It helps to make the butterfly and square and the sentiment pop while adding interest to the background. Thanks for joining us at STAMPlorations CAS.
