Project - WF13 Sablona Challenge - Thoughtful Card



Very cool card! I love the effect you got with the stencil you made and the walnut inks (I have some of those languishing in a drawer!). Your butterfly is beautiful; who makes that one?

Beautiful card. TFS. Daria


Beautiful card. Outstanding butterfly and great use of the die. Thanks for sharing

Another one I missed. I love everything about this one too! I agree with everyone's comments! This is quite lovely!

I like the outcome here! SO glad you stuck it through the challenge b/c the results are so pretty! I have a punch around the page punch too--I have to try and use it as a stencil and see if it looks this good!

Like the colors also and the butterfly is perfect!

TFS! Good job!

Very BEAUTIFUL! Why didn't I think to use my butterfly punch? The whole card is perfect!

Gorgeous card and great use of a punch. Love the glittered butterfly too!

This is my third attempt to produce something for this challenge. For some reason my previous attempts seemed to be dogged with accidents and failure.

This time around I attempted something very simple to cut down on the opportunity for catastrophe to strike.

I made my own stencil using a Martha Stewart, punch-all-over-the-page, punch. (picture2)
Then I adhered it to a piece of water-colour paper and sprayed it with 2 different colours of Walnut Antiquing ink.

I used Pearl Ex gold pigment and spray adhesive to create a gold tone border on the front of a kraft card stock card base. I trimmed down the water colour paper to fit and stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and copper embossing powder, and attached a narrow green and gold ribbon to the piece then attached it to the card front.

I pulled a butterfly that I had punched out and glittered up previously, from my stash,
attached a few colour co-ordinated gems to the butterfly and attached it to the front of the card with glue dots.
