BYOB Redux

As I promised a couple of posts ago, I have a card I created using my own designer paper.

When I made the Delicate Asters card, I had some leftover fancy lattice die cuts so I thought of using them as a stencil to ink up card stock for a background. I used Tattered Angels Glimmer mist in walnut gold and randomly sprayed some areas of the blush c/s very lightly. Then I stamped an over-sized peony (Stampendous) a couple of times with sepia Archival ink. Using an old, retired SU stencil, I added the swirls with TA olive vine glimmer mist. Finally, I added a bit of rose colour to the flower images by water colouring some gelato on them. I cut this final work to fit a 5x7 white card and taped it to the front.

I die cut the butterfly (SB's Les Papillions) from white c/s and added gelato to it, then sprayed it with the gold glimmer mist . By now, the lattice scrap I had been using as a stencil was very pretty, sprayed with both the olive (from experimenting) and gold mists. I attached it to the card front with art glitter dries clear adhesive, then added the butterfly, to which I attached some adhesive pearls.

The bottom layer of the sentiment motif is two dies using SB Antique Frames and Accents largest die. I removed the center piece, cut them both and used only part of each pieced back together to get the shape I wanted, Then I sprayed everything, including the center rectangle with the olive glimmer mist and adhered it all to the card base.

I die cut a tag from the blush c/s with a die from SB Fancy Tags 2, stamped my  sentiment (HFC) with pear pizzazz ink, sponged some of the same pear ink around the edges of the tag, and attached it with dimensionals.

Inside, which I failed to photograph, I put a vertical 2' band of blush c/s with a strip if the lattice over it, then wrote in my own message. You will have to use your imagination for that.

I have included another close up of the lattice in which I tried to capture some of the beautiful sheen created by the glimmer mist.

Well, that is the result of my little light bulb moment. I hope you liked it. See you again soon, and meanwhile, get your fingers inky.
