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.For more challenge inspiration take a moment to visit and leave some love for the awesome designers listed below:
