Hello everyone! I’m back with a card I made for Penny Black. This time, I decided to create a card in a clean and simple Mixed Media style using the fabulous Butterfly Trio stamp set (#40-473):
I first created the colorful background. Rainbow colors… Anyway, I can’t resist! LOL I sponged Distress inks over the panel and I spritzed water mixed with shimmer for more interest (unfortunately, you can't see the shimmer on this picture but it looks so beautiful). Once it was dry, I secured the panel to the craft area using removable tape and the Oscillations stencil (#25-014) on top. I then blended black ink over the stencil. Next, I stamped the butterflies. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder on a black strip that I adhered to the panel with foam pads. The sentiment is from the Snippets stamp set (#30-283). To finish off my card, I fixed the beautiful rainbow panel to a top-folded card base made from white cardstock.
