The fourth card at class this month was inspired by a swap I received at a recent training event from Kerry Timms - visit her blog HERE. I kept the design and changed up the colours.
The base is Rose Red, topped with a layer of Baja Breeze. This has been distressed using the Cutter Kit, and also stamped with the butterfly from Clearly For You in Whisper White. Using this ink gives a very delicate background.
Two strips of Very Vanilla have been punched with the Eyelet Border Punch and then screwed up! Yes, you heard right, I did struggle with this at first as I'm generally a neat freak, with clean edges everywhere! It was good fun though........... The Rose Red centre strip was also distressed around the edges and then screwed up into a ball and then flatten back out.
I used the flat stamp and Teabag Stain ink from the Distressing Essentials kit to age the Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla and Rose Red pieces. This kit is great, with so many tools for distressing, and four different coloured inks to work with as well.
The images from Clearly For You were inked using Markers in Crumb Cake, Rose Red and Baja Breeze, and stamped onto Very Vanilla and cut using the 1 3/8" Circle Punch. These were also distressed before being added to the card using Dimensionals.
This card was lots of fun to make, using some great techniques.
