Flutter Suncatcher

The Inspiration Challenge on SCS today is beautiful!!! Check it out here http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=346832 . I looked at this last night after I finished yesterday’s Chalkboard technique card and I thought… well… that’s what the butterfly in the inspiration needs…

Flutter Suncatcher:
This card is for a friend of mine who is definitely a girlie girl! She was in an accident with a Semi last week on her way home from work. Luckily she is fine and will be back on her feet in a few weeks. It’s a good thing that she drives an SUV or things may have turned out very differently!

Okay some card info:
The black butterfly is actually stamped on the back side to that I could cut out the butterfly silhouette. I stamped the small flowers and fern in White Craft ink and applied Pearlescent chalks. The black photo corners followed the same process.

The flower oval has a base of Very Vanilla CS, stamped flowers in VersaMark, added chalks to the enter and then clear embossed. The embossing did not pick up as well in the chalked area so I sponged on some VersaMark and re-embossed the flower centers. The last step was sponging on the green.

The background was sponged to give it a cloud effect using a paper stencil.

The hardware details were filled in with a mix of Crystal Effects and Pretty in Pink re-inker.

Thanks for visiting today!
