Today I am sharing the purple card I talked about in a previous post. This was nice and easy to make. I used Distress Stains on lightly misted watercolour paper. I started with Seedless Preserves, then Dusty Concord followed by Shaded Lilac. I made sure to overlap each colour a little bit. I laid down a good amount of each colour and then blended with my finger from darkest to lighest and then from lightest to darkest.
Once dried with the heat tool I flicked water over the top, waited around 10-15 seconds and then mopped up the excess water with paper towel before drying with a heat tool. I coloured a small scrap of paper in the same colours and used a Carl punch to cut a butterfly.
I stamped my sentiment with a Hero Arts stamp and used silver embossing powder. When I heated the embossing powder it melted into the back ground :S. I don't know if it was becaue of the watercolour paper or if it was because they powder was some old stuff my mum gave me lol. I cut a V at the end and then using another Carl punch I cut some mini suns out, as you can see I cut too close to the edge with one :(
I used foam squares to adhere the strip to my white card base and Glossy Accents to adhere the butterfly. I then used a Viva Decor Pearl Pen in Silver to decorate the card and butterfly with some dots.
Well this has to be the cleanest and simplest card I have made :) I really love this one lol.
Thanks for stopping by.
