For today's card, I used a sentiment from the Autumn Leaves stamp set the focal image form the Butterfly Wings stamp set. The Butterfly Wings stamp set, is a large 5.5 x 5.5 inch background stamp where the outline butterfly images can be colored with markers or colored pencils. The set also comes with a set of sentiments, perfect for greetings on your card.
To make this card, I stamped the background image with my Hero Arts Intense Black ink onto a 6x6 inch piece of white card stock, using my Misti Stamping. Since this image is large, I wanted to ensure I got a crisp solid outline image of the butterflies. Therefore, I had to stamp the image a couple of times to get a clean image. Next I trimmed the background to a 1.75 x 5.5 inch strip.
Next I colored each of the butterflies with my Distress Markers in Spice Marmalade, Mustard Seed and Rusty Hinge. I used a little bit of shading on each of the butterflies to create depth and dimension.
Next I took a light blue colored pencil from my stash and colored in the background.
To assemble the card, I first grabbed a piece of black card stock from my stash and trimmed it to 1.25 x 5.5 inches. I then adhered the black card stock trip to my colored colored butterfly panel with some tape runner adhesive. I then adhered this piece to my card base with some liquid adhesive. Next I stamped the sentiment from the Autumn Leaves stamp set onto the white card base with my Versafine Onyx Black ink.
Lastly I fussy cut a yellow colored butterfly from the remaining background piece and adhered it to the card with liquid adhesive just below the sentiment. There you have it. A simple almost one layer card made from a background stamp. I hope you enjoyed todays's card share and got a bit of inspiration!
Until next time, happy crafting!
