Good Evening. It has been a wonderful weekend. The weatherman got the forecast all wrong and all of the rain came at night so we had two beautiful days which is exactly as a summer weekend should be.
I haven't spent much time in my craft room but I did manage to finish off this card that I had been working on. I had wanted to play with some of my new Tim Holtz stamps and some of the techniques that I learnt in the Creative Chemistry class. In the end, this card feature one of my favorite Tim techniques of emboss resist. I have embossed the large background stamp and then inked over it with Distress inks in various shades of yellow, orange and green before stamping the butterflies.
I have then inked up the central butterfly again using my Distress markers and stamped it on some dictionary to layer over the original image. I have finished it off with one of the pen nibs, I have dipped the tip in multiple layers of black and red embossing powder to make it appear as if it had actually been used.
I think that I may head back to my craft room and see if I can't put together another card before I go to bed. Thanks for coming by, I really do appreciate your visits.
This card will be entered into the following challenges:
