Hi Everyone, Katie here, and todays blog post is based on a challenge from Joset! I am so excited to be using the new Elizabeth Craft Designs Hand Drawn Stamp & Die Collection. I decided to take her up on her challenge and do a creative background with stencils, inks and distress spray. So grab a coffee or tea and lets get started!!
Step 1: Take a sheet of heavy watercolor paper and cut it to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.
Step 2: I took one of the stencils from Planner stencils 3 and added distress ink directly to the back of the stencil, next I spritzed it with water and pressed it to my watercolor paper and dried it with my heating tool. Next, I took my pink distress ink pad and smooched it against my mat, spritzed it with water. Then I took my reversed stencil image and dabbed it into my smooshed ink, and dry.
Step 3: Stamp and cut out your butterfly images and your tag from Esther new release as per picture above.
**Optional** I added some stenciling and a butterfly to the inside of my card base.
Step 4: I sprayed distress black soot on my matt, next I took a lid and rubbed it into the black soot and created the circles on my card image. I took my card front dragged the edges in the remainder of the ink on my matt and speckled. (See picture below)
Step 5: I pop dotted my butterfly with a foam dot.
Step 6: I took my ticket tag and adhered it to my card front as per picture above, next I added some black Sisal and adhered my butterfly on top.
Step 7: I added the word hello but any script word will do, next I matted my card front to black card stock and adhered it to a card base that is 6 x 9 1/2, scored @ 4 3/4″.
Thank you for joining me with todays blog post I hope it gave you some creative inspiration.
Have a wonderful day!
