Its Friday, its 2 o'clock, well here anyway, so its time for a reminder that the STAMPloration's June sketch and theme challenge still has a couple of weeks to run.
Here is my card for the DT inspiration.
I used the sketch and the theme but you can use either if you prefer!
For my card I started off by inking the top panel through my ARTplorations stencil, Dots All Over quite randomly with Versamark then embossing in a silver pearl EP . The bottom panel I embossed with the same stencil by running it through my Big Shot with the tan mat to give it a subtle texture.
As I was making an anniversary card I wanted to include some silver, so added a strip between the two white panels.
I'd seen Anja's gorgeous inspiration card over at Tag You're It, so decided to take it as my inspiration for my detail. I die cut a tag and washed some Mermaid Lagoon DI in a w/c manner, then die cut a leaf stalk and twig. The butterfly, Blossom Like a Butterfly was stamped on vellum then fussy cut. I felt it needed a little colour so washed some Wilted Violet over the back. This made the vellum pucker up and I thought I'd made a mistake, but it actually worked in my favour as it made the butterfly a little more sturdy. The sentiment is made up of a magazine anniversary freebie and the HAPPY is from the Banners and Balloons set.
All the panels and tag were then glued flat onto a C6 base card.
OK, that's all from me. For more fantastic inspiration, please check out the rest of our fab DT where you will also find out all the Ts and Cs, then why not join in.
