Got an allergy shot today and forgot I don't sleep the first night afterwards. So I decided to make my card for the challenge to pass the time.
I wanted to use this stamp set to make a card for my niece and took my inspiration from the colors in the Beaded Handbag.
I stamped the image on watercolor paper using Palette Hybrid Burnt Umber ink-also the sentiment in the bu ink. I watercolored the image using Derwent and Faber-Castell wc pencils and a blender pen. I have lived here all my life and I don't think I have seen a butterfly that color in Missouri! I used a gel glitter pen to add some sparkle which doesn't show well-too early for it as well I guess. I tore the paper on the image and the layers and distressed the edges of the layers and around the off white base card. I also lightly sponged coffee ink around the torn image and over the top. Made a slit in the fold of the card and added an off white ribbon.
