Crafty Boots Challenges Things with wings

We are back with one of my favourite challenges at Crafty Boots Challenges; Things with wings. I'm a sucker for butterflies, I absolutely LOVE them! So much so, that I made two cards for week 1, and have a few more in the works for our mid-challenge reminder

Card 1

Card 1 is a sample for a technique demonstration I will be doing for my local craft group next year; negative masking. I have used gloss card and my kaleidoscope ink pad, along with a love heart to get a rainbow heart image, and sponged across it with Distress Ink Black Soot and a love heart stencil, finished off with Stampin' Up! Bold Butterflies dies, rhinestones, and alphas. The card base is Stampin' Up! Elegant Eggplant cardstock.
Card 2

Oh my lord, I had SOOOOOO much fun with this one! The background was done over a few days, as I started with gloss cardstock and Adirondack alcohol inks, then used the Adirondack blending solution and Tim Holtz stencils to add some more features. The dies are the same as for card 1, and I used the retired Stampin' Up! Feel Goods stamp set for the sentiment, matted on black cardstock, and Stampin' Up! Wisteria Wonder cardstock for the card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by, be sure to stop by next week with my mid-challenge reminder!

  1. Two totally fabulous cards Jess. I love the rainbow heart in the first card, such an effective technique and the sweet little butterflies are great finishing touches.

    I bet you got in a right mess making the background for the second card, I know I would have done. More of those lovely butterflies and a wonderful sentiment.

    Have a great week.
