Craft Stamper Take It Make It Challenge ~ Take A Stamp
Welcome to my first post as part of the Craft Stamper TIMI design team! I am so excited to be part of this wonderful group of designers.
Our theme this month is Take a Stamp! As long as there is stamping somewhere on your project that is all that matters. Easy right? So you can express yourself however you want to. All of the details can be found here.
This is the project I came up with. I used white embossing powder and Brusho. I LOVE Brusho it is my new addiction. I love how you can take a wee pot of coloured powder and create such organic patterns with it. I used a Unity stamp on this card called - Don't be like the rest of them. I love this stamp so much it incorporates two of my favourite things butterflies and script writing.
I stamped with VersaMark ink then heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then sprinkled some Brusho and sprayed my paper. Once I got the pattern I wanted from the Brusho I heat set it. Then I went back over the butterfly and made it much darker to make it stand out. I stamped the love always sentiment right in the corner with VersaFine ink. Next I distressed the edges, then took my scissors and fussy cut the wings from the paper but left the body intact. I pulled the wings forward to make it look like the butterfly is actually about to take flight. Finally I mounted it on to a white card base that was also distressed.
I hope you like my card! I love the way it turned out. So now it is is your turn, come and join in the fun grab a stamp and create something. We have some pretty great prizes for you to win. Our lovely sponsor is WOW! Embossing Powder and you get to win a set of 6 vintage embossing glitters in a case, and this lovely lace stamp.
