Dec 30, 2008 - Chalks & Pastels "BFlies Card"

Created: Dec 30/08

I love using the Ranger's Resist stamp pad and chalk pastels. I also love Suzanne's (Quietfire Design) butterfly/dragonfly rubber stamp set that came out in 2008. So I used both sizes of butterflies and the resist stamp pad. Then colored them with Pebbles Pearlescent chalks and their little cotton balls. Used the word stamps "Butterfly & Papillon" from the same sheet with a  gold stamp pad and Queen's gold embossing powder. I cut out a window for the quote stamp "Anais Nin" also by Quietfire and rubber stamped that with Versafine Black Onyx onto a medium dark toned purple cardstock which I then adhered to the back of the butterfly piece. I cut some 1/4" Sookwang double sided tape (yes I just ordered the 1/8"...) and laid it over the window edges, then sprinkled some Amethyst and then some Queen's gold embossing powders, so it gave it a slightly mottled look. Mounted all this to a deep lavender toned Bazzill monochromatic cardstock, then onto my regular lavender cardstock which you can't see. Added some purple metallic thread and the purple butterfly charm.

Pan Pastels for background, rubber stamped butterflies and gold embossed. Lettering done with Prismacolor ArtStix and a gel pen.
