gold tipped wings

Here's another card that I made for the Cornish Heritage Farm's backgrounder blitz. This challenge was to stamp only a partial background. I stamped the victorian sunflower backgrounder on part of a piece of pomegranate card stock in white craft ink and embossed it with white embossing powder. Then I added a piece of black grosgrain ribbon at the edge of the image. I had fun with the flower starting with an image that had very little color and gradually changing to very vivid color. Each image is colored differently. The lightest one is lightly colored with prismacolor pencils. The next one is colored with prismacolor pencils and gamsol (odorless mineral spirits). The front image is colored with copic markers. Spring is handwritten. I added some baubles along the righthand edge and then two black butterflies punched with a Martha Stewart punch. I used a gold glitter gel pen to highlight the edges on the butterflies.

stamps: victorian sunflower backgrounder, single black-eyed susan (all CHF)
ink: jet black stazon, white craft, copic markers
paper: creamy caramel, purely pomegranate, blush blossom, groovy guava, white mat coat, basic black
other: prismacolor pencils, gamsol, white ep, heat tool, butterfly punch (Martha Stewart), black grosgrain ribbon, gold glitter gel pen, baubles (Michael's), dimensional tape

Thanks for stopping by.
