Card #2

Card 2 for today is again with the color challenge from CR84FN 49, to use Kraft, Yellow and Gray on your project. I used the sketch from My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club MFTWSC61, and will also enter this one over at Flutterby Wednesday #192.


The grey and yellow patterned DP are from Stampin' Up. The Gray and yellow cardstock are Bazzil, and the Kraft is from a pack of paper I bought at a yardsale! I used the EK Success Gothic Arches border punch for the strip across the middle. The focal is a Penny Black Stamp (Flowers and Wishes), stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, and colored with Copic markers. I cut it out by hand and matted it on a yellow mat cut with Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles. The sentiment is from Impression Obsession Vertical Sentiments, stamped with Tsukineko Brilliance Starlight black. The butterfly I made with a flower stamp from SU Stamp set Mixed Bunch, stamped with SU Creamy Caramel and heat embossed wtih clear embossing powder.I then punched the flower out with the SU Blossom Punch and cut out 2 of the petels to make the butterfly. I added antanea made with some craft wire, and added some black stickles for the body.  I added some distressing to the edges of the layers with SU Creamy Caramel ink and a piece sponge. I also added some starlight Stickles to the flowers. Quite pretty! The focal image is popped up with foam dots. I enjoy hearing from you-Leave some love!
