I hope you all had a great weekend.
I would like to give a "Heartfelt Thank You" to Marcea for featuring my cards and blog on Inspirational yesterday. I was so touched by her wonderful comments. Thanks again Marcea, you truly made my day!!
ONE CARD....TWO CHALLENGES
I am getting pretty good at making one card for more than one challenge. I guess some of you ladies are rubbing off on me...lol!!
Today I am sharing a card for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge....which is black/white and 1 other color. I am also using it for the One Stop Craft Challenge #28 which is Cut It Out!
The flower image is from Penny Black...and one of my all time favorites.
The precious little butterfly is from High Hopes new release.
I embossed the images with black and painted them with Tombows. I added the white dots with my Inkssentials pen. I embossed and painted the butterfly 3 times and cut out and layered each section. The white background was cut with scallop scissors. Not having any pre-cut cards, I had to do it by measuring. I added some dew drops, a bow and of course some stickles.
Also a little tip for you all today.....I always thought that the dew drops were made of glass... No they are NOT....they are made of resin. (as my dear friend Cathy tells me...a little too late) I like to use the clear ones and I paint the backs of them with whatever color I need with permanent markers, glaze pens etc. Well they weren't drying fast enough for me so I picked one up with my metal tweezers and used my embossing gun to dry them....really bad idea. Melted it right to the tweezers, I shouldn't have tried to pick it off the tweezers until it has cooled either, it was really hot....LOL!! Anyway, a lesson learned.
I hope you like my card and my tip of the day...
Thanks for stopping by,
