MFTWSC73 Wednesday Stamp Club Challenge
This is my second posting for the day. Wow, I am on a roll and feelin crafty! This card was created for the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club. Below is the sketch created by MFT that I needed to follow for the challenge.
For this card I used a paper line that is new to me. It is "Pretty Party" by Crate Paper. I have been dying to get my hands on this paper line, and I finally bought the 6x6 paper pad from RibbonCarousel. I used my beautiful and may I mention first stamp set from There She Goes called Poppies illustrated by Chris Dark. I highly recommend this site for stamps. Not only are they beautiful and incredibly creative, but the images stamp out perfectly crisp.
I watercolored the image using Tim Holtz Distress Markers. I felt there were enough flowers in the card with the stamped image and the background paper, so I made 3D butterflies instead for my embellishments. They were so simple to make . I just stamped the butterfly image on to colored cardstock, free hand cut them out and bent the wings upwards to make them pop off the card. I then used Stickles glitter in Waterfall, Orange Peel, and Tropical Tangerine to accent the butterflies and the image.
I finished the inside of the card with space for a hand written message with the same materials as the outside.
I have to say this was was one of my favorite cards to make thus far. I think it was a combination of the paper that I love so much and the beautiful stamp set. I am a sucker for anything girlie and flowery! I hope you enjoy this card. Please come back and visit for future postings!
