Cute Card Thursday-Anything Goes
It has been snowing here, nothing has stayed but, still..ughhhh. I love snow but not in May so what can I do but make something summer like but not too hot. I stamped the butterflies and used my tombow markers to colour them in using a watercolour technique. I took a a plastic lid from a margarine container and scribbled some tombow markers on it. I then took my brush and dipped it in water and placed it on the markers scribble to pick up the colour and coloured in my butterflies. I fussy-cut them out and set it aside. I had gold cardstock which I embossed through my cuddlebug. I decided to try something new and took my stream coloured alcohol ink and put it on the gold cardstock using my dauber. I took almost all of it off making sure the teal stayed in the edges. I stamped the saying in teal and heat embossed it with Egyptian gold embossing powder. I used a fancy scissor to cut the edges. Finally I had some pieces of of cardstock that I had used some distress inks from something previously, and took a couple of butterfly stickers over top the colour and fussy cut them out.. I glued everything together using pop up dots on the butterflies. One card done...

I forgot all about my shimmer sheetz which have this shimmer effect, this one being Opal...I love these sheets! Well, slap my head with my palm as I haven’t used these in eons. I put alcohol solvent on a piece of glossy cardstock and quickly put some alcohol inks right on the card and watched it spread. What is fun is you can keep playing with it until you like the effect. After I came down from the fumes, I stamped and embossed the piece with the deer in the trees stamp and set it aside. I took my opal sheet and used a corner punch on it and adhered it to a pearl white paper card. I glued the white glitter cardstock to the opal shimmer sheetz and layered the deer one to the white cardstock. I took a star, bell and leaves glitter stickers and placed it on top of a piece of sheet I coloured in some paint that worked with the colours I needed. I fussy cut them out and put them on the card using pop up dots.
Well, still snowing, off and on, but let’s hope this is the final hurrah and, before you know it, this Canadian will be bitching about the heat which I hate! Hope you all had a good weekend
