I had such fun creating this card! This week's Arty Girlz challenge is to use butterflies; Crazy Amigo wants to see faces (hope my kitty qualifies...she has a face!); the Timeless Tuesday ladies over at Flourishes want us to use vellum, and over at Cute Card Thursday, the theme is animals. I've used two newly released Crafty Individuals stamps for this card, along with a Penny Black sentiment stamp. You just HAVE to toddle over to Crafty Individuals to see their new stamps! I used this precious kitten, stamped her on vellum, and coloured the reverse with Prismacolour Premier Art Markers. I adhered the image onto an Arches watercolour paper background altered with three colours of Ecoline Watercolour Inks (available in North America at Quietfire Design) , then mounted that on a piece of green Bazzill cardstock. I also used a new HUGE butterflies plate that I absolutely ADORE! This plate would be a wonderful background, but it's great to stamp and emboss these beauties, just to have to cut apart for crafty elements on your cards. I love all the beautiful designs the CI artists managed to incorporate into these butterflies. YUM! This card is destined for today's mail, on its way to a precious grandson.
