Hello. I have been wanting to use this Tim Holtz sentiment stamp set since I bought it – and in particular this sentiment. I created a different card to my usual style:
I had recently purchased a paper pack and I used a couple of pages from that pack for this card. I also used Gina K Designs Master Layouts die sets, as I knew I wanted some layering with the patterned paper. I chose to use black as the layers to coordinate with the papers.
The card base is 5×7 inches. I layered the light teal, black, and the striped teal and black layer. Out os the base light teal, I also cut the thick band across the centre, and layered that onto black too.
The light teal with a black scallop was then die cut, and out of another piece of paper I cut the image of the butterfly, onto which I stamped the sentiment.
Once all glued together – the base layers with glue, the band and circle with 3D foam – I added some teal flowers from my stash – two slightly different colours of teal – and because these had gems in the centre already, I added some extra gems onto the circular sentiment piece.
I shall be entering the following challenges:
Everybody Art Challenge – use two colours (teal and black)
TTCRD – anything goes
Crafting Happiness – anything goes
Avenue 613 – anything goes – option black and white not taken
Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper – anything goes with patterned paper
