It's been kinda challenging at our place lately. Fritz is having GI problems, so we've been to the vet twice & had a restless night with little sleep. Needless to say, I haven't gotten much done. Things are calm this afternoon, so I'm hoping to finally post a couple cards that have been waiting to be entered in some challenges.
First up is a card I started, but didn't finish for the March challenge. Fortunately, I could make it work for the Poppystamps April challenge.
I die cut Poppystamps Powell Butterfly from a scrap I painted with leftover Rose metallic acrylic paint (making this card) & from charcoal textured cardstock. I inlaid the pink pieces into the charcoal outline & vice versa. Stick pins for antenna were sandwiched between the inlaid butterfly & a solid white piece I trimmed as a backer. Soon I'll post the card I made with the other butterfly. The background was made by die cutting Poppystamps Massa Leaf Frame from a white panel & a gray panel. The gray die cut was inlaid into the white panel & matted with a slightly larger gray panel. I die cut the smallest Stitched Bloom Trio from vellum 3 times & added them to the frame with a dot of Champagne Stickles.
The butterfly was mounted with foam tape & I added some clear Pico Embellisher as dew drops. The Easter greeting will be inside. I'm also entering DRU, DCD & Time Out.
Gray & pink is one of my favorite color combos, so I used it again for this card.
The Abstract Petals MFT stencil was used with Heidi Swapp white Art Screen Ink which has a beautiful sheen. The banner was die cut with MFT Fishtail Flags & the next size up was used for the mat. Both the mat & the Impression Obsession die cut sentiment were foiled with Gina K Twinkling Pink.
The flag was added to a gray panel & I arranged MFT Wild Greenery white die cuts behind the sentiment. Lots of pretty sparkle & shine in person for this one. I'm entering Country View Challenges Easter/Spring, MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge, ModSquad Challenge & SSS Monday.
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by. If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.
