Mornin' y'all. How goes it? I hope everyone is having a good start to the week. I have a card for y'all today that uses a technique that I found on Gina K's Stamp TV. It's called Color on Color Resist. You can watch the video here.
I hope y'all can see the shine on the embossed butterflies in the picture. I tried to capture it for the blog.
To begin, I used Memento Inks in shades of Purple and a sponge dauber to add color to the white Gina K panel. I just randomly added color starting with the lightest purple first. I then used a brand new stamp set from Eco Green Crafts called Butterfly Post that I found at Tuesday Morning. I hadn't ever seen this company's stamps until that day. They are all made from recycled rubber and are the prettiest color green. I stamped the medium butterfly and small butterfly with Versa Mark ink. I then covered the image with Clear Embossing Powder from Ranger. I used my heat gun to emboss the images. After they were cool, I took Victorian Velvet Distress ink and applied color over the butterflies. I used a paper towel to remove the color on top of the butterflies. I then stamped the small Take Flight image on Gina K card stock with Versa Mark and used Adirondack's Eggplant embossing powder. After it cooled I used a Provo Craft Metal Stamp die to cut it out. I used pop dots to add it to the center of the card. I tied some Purple ribbon around the center of the panel.
I then trimmed down a panel of Purple card stock from Colorbok and wrapped a piece of striped purple ribbon around it. The background paper is from Far Far Hill. The edges of the papers are torn. I made the card base from Gina K Heavy Base Weight White card stock and it's a standard A2 size. I adhered the DP, then the purple panel and added the focal image wonky. For the corner embellishment, I used a Provo Craft Metal Die and ran it through my CuttleBug.
Thanks for stopping by today to see what I have been up to. Enjoy your Monday. God bless y'all.
