ID: MC July - Water - Every Blade card
5"w x 7"h

Created: July 14, 2010

So I saw this image of a faucet and I really wanted to do something with it. Then there were a bunch of challenges that had water as a theme and the rest just followed through.

Design Doilies   Black, Red & Pale Pink (butterfly)
My Time to craft  #99 Butterflies
Paper Take Weekly  #45 In the Garden
Cuttlebug Challenge  #92 In the garden
RESQ Challenge
 #53 Anything that uses water to keep you hydrated
Totally Gorjuss  #38 Water
Drunken Stampers  #24 Water
SSDS Challenge  #45 Make a Scene

So I cut the faucet and water drop from white cardstock, colored the handle with silver pigment ink and embossed with a mix of silver/clear/gold. colored the faucet part with Versafine black and embossed with midnight black. colored the water droplet with some Habernero and Vintage Sepia, clear embossed it and when adhered to the card added a thick layer of Glossy Accents.

The brick wall is a background stamp by Starving ArtiStamps. Stamped with Distress Fired Brick and embossed with Distress embossing powders (Antique Linen, Aged Mahogany, Dried Marigold), brushed off the loose particles to bring out the texture.

I found that stamping on the Distress powders is not easy, so I sanded the area I wanted to stamp and that worked like a charm. Stamped the quote (Quietfire Design) with the black.

Cut out some grassy shapes and adhered the to the bottom under the water droplet, then added some white flowers and put red half pearls in the centers.

Cut the butterfly (it's the same one as the other day but cut a lot smaller) with my Cricut from some pale pink iris Shimmer Sheetz (available thru Adhered some floral stamen for antennae and added 3 mini pale yellow rhinestones.
