Hey everyone! I have two posts today. I hope you’ll scroll down to see my tutorial for Whatcha Toot’in About Wednesday at Club Anya. 😀
My card today for The Wild Flower Patch is for WFWC37… All Twined Up. That’s right it’s time to pull out the twine and get to making a card. I LOVE twine. It might be my all time favorite embellishment on a card. It’s about as versatile as they come and I just love the look of it.
For my card today I used Poppy Butterfly Fairy and colored her with Copics. She was partially colored before I started this card so I don’t have the colors written down but I’m going to give it a guess at the end of the post.
After I colored her I used a Versamark Marker to color over her wings and embossed it with Stampendous Stardust embossing powder to give it some shine (this works great on digis as Stickles smear the printer in when I use it on digis). Then I used the cut out technique to partially cut her out of the die and then I sponged the outside with Broken Glass (it came out darker than I wanted as my sponge dauber had some stubborn Faded Denim on it that mixed in) and Walnut Stain TH Distress Ink.
I used this week’s Mercy Tuesday Sketch Challenge (MTSC96) for my layout and it looks a bit like I cased Mercy’s card but I really really didn’t. We just had similar thoughts on the sketch, lol. I’m also entering this in this week’s Flutter by Wednesday Challenge… it’s an open challenge this week. 😀
The papers I used are from October Afternoon’s Fly a Kite 8×8 stack and from Basic Grey’s basic kraft 12×12 pack.
