Wise Words…

stamps: …with Journal 40-127 by Penny Black; Empowered Words DD-960A by Unity Stamp Co

stencil: Mini Elliptic TCW605s by The Crafters Workshop

As usual I could not get my photos in library to rotate!! Aaagh! So frustrating. Anyway, below is my first version of finished card, but upon viewing the photographed image it appeared washed out, so I went back in and darkened the surrounding sepia sponged area, gave her blue eyes, added more shading to her boots and t-shirt and stamped out wording again, lifting it up with Magic Mount over original. Her bangles and spirals on journal are foiled with gold and silver Fab Foils. I added Glossy Accents over her hair (applied with paint brush) and dots of Baby Blue Liquid Pearls for center of flowers. The circular stenciled area is highlighted with Wild Honey Distress Stickles. I sponged Tumbled Glass Distress ink inside the circle and used coloured pencils to colour everything in.

butterfly formation 006I have a new butterfly die! Memory Box #99145 reverse Butterfly Collage die. The wording is from Unity Stamp Co’s Empowered Words DD-960A.

Cut the die from a piece of white kromekote (gloss) card which has been coloured with various Alcohol inks. Place plain ivory card beneath the cut-out to highlight the butterfly pattern. Lightly sponge the butterfly wings with a dark purple chalk and smudge some Lavender Sticbutterfly formation 007kles around the wing tips. Draw the butterfly bodies and antennae on with a black Zig pen.  Stamp the wording with a black Archival pad (note: don’t use a StazOn pad or it will re-act with the alcohol inks, and some dye pads may not dry on the gloss card). Mount finished card front onto backing layers to frame.
