The Paper Players are celebrating their 400th blog challenge and I wanted to join in the fun...
Their challenges are always fun and the team is hugely creative and inspiring.
This is my card.....
For the background.......
I sprayed my white card stock with Lindy sprays in brown and copper.
The flower bouquet has been masked, stamped and heat embossed with copper.
The hidden die cut birthday sentiment was raised slightly with foam.
For the Die Cut Butterfly......
I loosely sketched the shape of the butterfly onto the die cut.
Using a pipette I dropped in three shades of the Lindy's and
drying in between so that I would NOT get a blended effect.
Using coloured pva glue I traced the shape of the butterfly, first with gold
and then hi-lighting in bronze. Whilst still wet I used a toothpick to get shapes and to blend.
The Lindys and the heat embossing is all shiny
and the pva glues are subtle, which has added a lovely contrast and texture.
I haven't used them in years, so much so I had to use a pliers to get them unblocked.
The CAS Mix Up Challenge is using die cuts but my card isn't CAS enough to add it to the gallery but the challenge has given me the inspiration and confidence to do more with colouring die cuts.
The die cut sentiment, from PTI was gifted to me for winning a challenge, with these cards
