Craft Stamper - A Fine Romance!

Good Morning!
Today I thought I would share with you the card that was featured in the February issue of Craft Stamper. I was asked to create a card for the 'Ready, Set, Stamp!' Feature where you make something that can be created within 30 minutes. The theme was 'A Fine Romance' and there was also a colour palette to follow.


To create this card stamp the butterfly image using Distress Ink, sprinkle over clear embossing powder and heat up. Once cooled, spritz the white card stock with water and swipe the Distress Stains over the top. Heat dry and then stamp the script image from the set using the Picket Fence Stain. Using Archival Ink stamp your sentiment in the bottom right corner then finish the card by embellishing with a selection of flowers and dew drops.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
BUNNY ZOES CRAFTS - ANYTHING GOES
WILD ORCHID CRAFTS - COMING UP ROSES




INGREDIENTS -
Tim Holtz 'Papillon' Stamp Set
Penny Black Sentiment Stamp
Flowers from WOC & Flower Spray from The Ribbon Girl
Twinklets Glitter, Dew Drops & Ranger Glossy Accents


INKS USED -
Distress Ink - Bundled Sage
Distress Stain - Milled Lavender, Worn Lipstick, Bundled Sage & Picket Fence
Archival Ink - Jet Black

Thanks for popping by!
HAPPY CRAFTING!

That is wonderful and certainly doesnt LOOK like a 30 minute card! Love the colour scheme, really unusual for these stamps and it works beautifully. And oh, those flowers are gorgeous. Maddy x
