Center Stage Spotlight DT & Alumni Challenge #2

It's time for another CenterStage Spotlight Challenge Blog hop!
Hostess: Jessica Fick {Design Team Coordinator} Theme: Stamp and color the image on Patterned Paper { any occasion card acceptable, it doesn't have to be Christmas themed} { image may be cut out and layered, but must be stamped and colored on patterned paper} Requirement: any GinaK Designs stamp set & Glitter Bonus Challenge: decorate the inside of your card to coordinate
What a fun challenge! As soon as I knew what this challenge was going to be about I knew I wanted to use some vintage K & Co paper that I had in my stash. I ended up using four different sets of stamps from Gina K. Designs for this challenge. I used Take Flight for the butterflies, Vintage Borders for the scalloped edging, Leaf frond from Whimsical Autumn and on the inside I used a sentiment from Thanks a Million.

First, I choose to use Mercy's sketch challenge this week (MTSC49) and then I embossed the butterflies with Egyptian Gold EP on the print paper (this EP is really glittery IRL) and then colored them a bit with Copic markers E04 and RV000 for a bit of shading. Because the ink in the copics is transparent, you can still see the pretty print of the paper showing through. Ya gotta love that!

The leaf frond was stamped in Adirondack Latte ink onto the Chiffon Double Dot base card. I embossed the scallop border onto Wine Double Dot cs using the same Egyptian Gold EP. The wine panel and the butterfly panel are layered onto some Tan Leather cs from GKD. On the inside I layered some print paper onto Wine Double Dot and then stamped my sentiment in Adirondack Cranberry ink onto Chiffon Double Dot that was layered to another piece of Tan Leather cardstock.

I gave this card to my Mom for Thanksgiving. I know it's not your traditional Thanksgiving card, but she loves butterflies and it was the perfect card for her.
