Good Morning and a Big Hello to my new followers this week! This week so far has seen me creating some cards which are overdue for a swap. I had to create a card which included scallops, so I tried out a new SVG cutting file on my Sizzix Eclips. The file is from the Cutting Cafe and part of a Shaped Card Collection.
The front is actually rectangular whilst the back overlaps bigger than the front with a scallop edge.
I have initially lightly sponged three colors across my front panel. Those colors being Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Marina Mist all from Stamping up. I then took my main image and sentiment and using Versamark stamped them and then taking some clear embossing powder embossed them. The light sponged color showing through.
Again using my three chosen colors I added more depth of color to my background, blending the Old Olive across both of the other colors. Around the edges I distressed with Tattered Rose and Aged Mahogany Distress Ink.
To finish I took the Sizzix/Stampin' Up! Embosslits Beautiful Wings and die cut/embossed 3 butterflies out of a brown patterned paper scrap and added some green bling to the flowers of the stamped image and some Old Olive Ribbon to the bottom of the card.
I am entering this card into the following challenges.
