Fluttering by



I needed one more 5x7 card for August birthdays and I  had been wanting to make a recessed window card so I  checked out several of my favorite challenges and this is what I came up with and I was quite happy with the result.  I stamped amuse studio's sunny side of life on white cardstock and sponged distress inks to get a sunset look.  I dabbed Versamark ink on the image and lightly sprinkled holographic embossing powder on the image to get a night sky effect:
 
I die cut my circle out of Kaisercraft paper (thank you Diane!) and did my layer with Washi tape at the bottom to match my sponging.  To coordinate my butterfly dies (Memory box and amuse) I layered my Washi tape on cardstock and them cut them out).


Did you notice the little corner butterfly punch in the top corners?  I guess you noticed butterflies are one of my many favorites!  Thanks for stopping by!

A few fun challenges:

Butterfly Challenge #36: Butterflies + W is for Washi Tape
Glitter n Sparkle Challenge #148: Anything Goes
Sketch Saturday
Sparkle N Sprinkle: Anything Goes: embossing powder (or loose glitter, and/or flocking)

Very nice card. Like how you sponged the sunset scene and also
think it clever to use washi tape on cardstock and make your
butterflies from it. Mom

There's so much to do using inks, but I don't quite master those techniques yet. Your result is fantastic. And great use of washis, I've got plenty tapes I love but need some ideas on how to use them.

Hi, Donna! What a beautiful scene in the circle - your ink sponging and embossing powder really add a nice touch. The washi tape looks fabulous and I like how you continued it on the die-cut butterflies - very clever! I was so happy to see your card over at the Butterfly Challenge!

Love all your butterflies and how you created the night sky. I had not noticed the butterflies in the corner and had to scroll back up to check them out. Nice!

Your card is really pretty - I like the silhouetted images in the circle, the embossed background within the circle is wonderful. Love the washi butterflies too :) Thanks for joining us at Sparkle N Sprinkle's Creative Challenge.
