An Eclectic Group of Products used on this card!
Happy Summer Days...
How are we all doing this fine and hot, hot day? I am staying cool here in the house laying low and out of the hot and humid weather. My summer visitors are all gone now and I am just settling and resting from the hustle and bustle - I haven't really stopped since school was out at the end of June. Now I'm going to have some me time and get to work on some fun stuff. I am posting another card tonight and on this card I used a few unrelated products. This stamp is another one that I borrowed from a friend as I found it very interesting and thought it would be different to use. It's a Lablanche Silicone Stamp (Deb can get them in). I inked the stamp up with Momento Black ink - which is the best ink to use when coloring the stamped image with Copic alcohol markers. I was intrigued with the crispness of the image as I wanted to practice coloring with Copics and knew that this image would test my coloring abilities. I layered up the stamped image with a randomly torn piece of pattern script paper, well distressed with Ranger Antique Linen Distress ink. The flower on the top part of the card is one given to me by my friend who was working on a Glimmer Mist technique flower.. She Glimmer Misted some paper with layers of various colors of Glimmer Mist letting the paper dry between layers. Once the paper was glimmered up and dry she punched several flowers out of the paper and then layered them up. She scrunched them up and distressed them with Ranger Distress inks. She offered me one and I chose this color to go on this card. It is quite shimmery and shows up better in person. The sentiment is a stamp from JustRite's 31/4" round Butterfly Garden Collection. The Spellbinders are Labels Nineteen, Labels Six, and on each end of the Label Six I put an Accent #1 from the Tulips Pendants set to make it look dimensional and ornate. Last but not least, the butterfly on the bottom left corner is a butterfly stamp I had in my stash. I stamped it on vellum twice and cut it out, colored it on the backside with pastel colored copic markers, and layered it up. I traced the edge with a glue pen and stuck some gliter on it for a sparkly effect! So there you have it!
