Take Flight

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.

  2. It's really lovely, Emily. Beautiful work on it. Unfortunately, we can't see how it fits in to the "2 colors, 2 "T"s, 2 ribbons" theme at Tuesday Throwdown this week so it probably won't qualify for the prize. :-( Sorry.
