April 7, 2009 - Spring

Created: April 7, 2009

"Take Time Card"  4.5"w x 6.5"h
I stamped these flowers ages ago to do some sort of experiment - which never happened... They were done on black cardstock with white embossing powder. I then painted them, with each one a different color from an ArtQuest watercolor palette "Stargazer".  I cut around them and cut some of the petals so my word quote would slide underneath. I colored the main card with Pan Pastels in a yellowish green and some other greens, weird colors but looks great. The quote insert was also done on white cardstock rubber stamped with (Quietfire Design "Take Time") Versafine Moss Green. Note I left of the words "the Season" and replaced it with my word "Spring". I distressed the edges of the quote insert with 2 brown Distress stamp pads.  I added a little bar on the right hand side to slip the word quote under and keeps the card closed. Rubber stamped the butterfly (Quietfire Design) with black stamp pad and Holographic embossing powder. Needless to say, you can't see the holographic effect in the pic.


You can see a little of the holographic effect in the detail pic.

The inside of the card is a stationery paper in green with a butterfly on the corner.
