ID: MC July 11 - Rainbow/Wings - A Friend card
5"w x 7"h

Created: July 31, 2011

This is one of the stamps from the Quote Marks Friendship set from Quietfire Design

I took a Color Box "Paintbox" set and just swiped all the colors at one time down my white cardstock. Went over it a couple more times, then clear embossed it all. Rubbed a Distress Walnut Stain pad over it all and wiped off the excess with a paper towel. Trimmed it down to size.

Adhered the green ribbon down the left side and attached it to the back. Made a double peg bow and set it aside.

Die cut a piece of Graffix Clear Plastic with a Spellbinders "Parisian Motifs" die, lightly sanded the area for my quote. Stamped it with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Used a Krylon Copper Leafing pen around the edges and adhered it to the card with Glossy Accents. Adhered these layers to a bright apple green textured cardstock and then onto my main white card , edge to edge.

adhered the double peg bow with a couple mini staples using Tim's Tiny Attacher.

Had made molds of various buttons, so used them with some Sculpey polymer clay, baked them and painted them with ArtQuest watercolor pallets in various colors. Some had the paint slightly wiped off after painting. Others had some glitter applied around the edge, and one had a pink rhinestone adhered to the center. I added some crimson embroidery floss to the buttons with holes. I adhered them all to the card with a mini glue gun.

The butterfly are two sizes of paper flowers with 2 petals removed from each, adhered to each other. Then using the straight pin to hold my seed beads, adhered them to the body with the glue gun. Also made some antennae with a dot of Opal Liquid Pearls on some coated thread
