WOW...what a week-end. Sunday was the launch of Deborah's online store FargoCatShops. There are great prizes and give-a-ways. If you haven't entered yet please check out the May 2 posts on both my blog and her's for all the details. Thanks to all who have left comments - they are appreciated! :)
Moving right along to today's card. I love it! Let's start with the background. The green bazzill cardstock is actually embossed with leaves. Yes, that's the way it comes. I haven't tried sanding it yet but I will....and I'll share my finding with you.
Around the edges of the white cardstock I added some Tim Holtz distress inks. The colors used were Peeled Paint and Stormy Sky. (Next Monday I'll be sharing some of the things I've learned with the distress inks. In the meantime I used copic markers to color in the images. (RV10, Y02, Y11, C3, C5, E21, E31, E33 & colorless blender) Of course I couldn't resist some glitter on the butterfly. You'll notice I also used another leafy stamp on the bottom edge just to give the illusion that the little mouse was up in the air!
Nestabilities were used for the scallop edge and pop-ups were added for dimension.
