Hello! I made this card for a challenge at the Color Me Creative Classroom. The gold and cream inspiration photo was so gorgeous! I used images from my new set, Dogwood and Butterfly, along with a sentiment from Whimsical Wishes.
To start, I heat embossed the butterfly with Ranger Superfine Gold Embossing Powder on Pure Luxury Ivory. I used Versa Mark to stamp the image, then sprinkled embossing powder over it, gently blowing away the excess. Then I used my heat tool to melt the embossing powder.
I used Copics to color the butterfly, starting with Y23.
Added Y21, then used my blender pen to soften the edges of the highlights.
I used Y17 to deepen the shading a bit. After color, I cut out the image. If you look carefully, you can see I forgot to use my anti-static pad and have a lot of tiny
I stamped the dogwood branch with Memento London Fog.
Then colored with Copics, starting with E53.
Then started with E35 on the leaves.
Then filled in with E31. I used the blender pen to push some highlights back in. I also used E31 to deepen the shading just a tad on the flowers.
Used Y17 to added a shadow around the branch.
Then added Y000. After coloring, I cut out the branch using Circle Nestabilities.
I layered with Pure Luxury Gold card stock, using Lacy Circle Nestabilities to back the circles. The sentiment was also embossed with gold.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!
