I am on a roll after a long time not posting. Had to stay home today as I was afraid to get stuck in the snow/slush/mud/ice. Yes that is what we have outside. So many cars in my neighborhood are getting stuck and people are spending hours just trying to dig around their cars to try to get it out from the mess. I was going to do some shopping, but quickly changed my mind when I saw just how many cars are stuck out there. So instead, I decided to try and play catch up with my stamping and the challenges.
Here is a card for the Holiday Challenge Extravaganza 2008 over at Splitcoast Stampers. For this challenge we were to get inspiration from a photo taken by Christine Lebrasseur - "I wish...".
For this card I stamped the branch from Basic Grey onto a marbled cs with Dark Brown Color Box Ink. I then used white liquid applique on the branch and sprinkled it with white glitter. I let it dry for a bit and then applied some heat with a heat gun to puff up the liquid applique. The cs stock was then die cut using the Labels 2 nesty from Spellbinders, embossed it and then sponged it with Purely Pomegranate. Stamped the different butteryflies onto white cs with Purely Pomegranate, then colored them with Copic markers. Each of the butterflies were cut and glued on to the main panel. The main panel was mounted onto Purely Pomegranate cs then onto to the background dp from 'The Sasha Paper Collection' by Prima Marketing. Sentiment is from the $stamps of Michaels which was stamped on another die cut piece from the Labels2. Added a butterfly ribbon at the bottom and then some Prima flowers.
