Yesterday I shared a card with you and mentioned that halfway through it I stopped working on it and started a new card. Have you ever done that before?
This is the card I made. Which card do you like better? Yesterday's, which was very Clean and Simple – or this one, which is more dressed up? Leave me a comment, I'd love to know!
I'm entering this card in the autumn colors challenge at Flourishes: Timeless Tuesday #233 ~ Autumn Color.
To start out, I cut three pieces of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4 x 1-3/4. I sponged each of those pieces with Pool Party, Brown Sugar and Pumpkin Pie.
I stamped then adhered them to a 4-1/8 x 5-3/8″ piece of Baked Brown Sugar. Next, I took a very wet paintbrush and flicked water on my stamped and sponged layers. Since the ink is waterbased, the water reacts with the ink and gives you little washed out specks. It really adds fun interest to your design!
Next, I sponged my doily with Pool Party ink, adhered it to the card and added all my layers. The butterfly was colored with Copic Markers and glittered.
