So here is the card - totally different for me so would love to know what you think?
I saw a studio 490 blog post and whilst this is totally totally different it set me off down this path. I started with the flowers. I have some little sketchy flower stamps that I got from the stamp man ages ago. Now the last time I tried to use the modelling film from studio 490 it was a disaster and my efforts went in the bin but I thought I would give it a go . I got out my stash of Tim Holtz paper - I have used bits that I had left over from the hidden attic pad (I think). I stamped out the big and small flower three times in black archival. I did the same with the butterfly. I stuck these onto the modelling film with cosmic shimmer and left to dry well. I cut them out and then used dtp with marmalade distress ink then I added brown around the edges. The butterflies are mustard seed and forest moss. I heated them and bent them (you need asbestos hands) and YES YES YES I managed it . I was so chuffed the rest of the card just followed on from there really I inked up some paper for the topper and the base and added the grunge paste which I then inked when dry. I used grey board for the stems (just cut some strips) and die cut some leaves. The frame around the words are also from the stamp man which I have had a long time - before I got a die cutting machine.
This set me off - so tomorrow's post are tags--- watch this space!
