Hello

I was on such a roll creating and then I came to a halt....no sure why...guess it just happens sometimes. This background sat on my desk for days...then I challenged myself to use up previously made items that never made it to a card, and it finally came together. I guess I was in a rush to finish it, because after I glued down the butterfly and sentiment I realized I had thought to stamp a design on the blue cut out :( Anyway..so happy to have a card to share today :)


I decided to play along with the challenge over at the Impression-Obsession blog: Red, White and Blue Challenge. I used a very versatile stamp by them... CR006 Honeycomb. I am sure you know by now how I coloured it in LOL. The image was embossed with white embossing powder and then I coloured in the combs with my Tim Holtz Distress Markers, and then spritzed with a water mixture and Perfect Pearls....yes I am still in LOVE with them...LOVE how they easily wipe off the embossed image as you can see here:


The sentiment is a sticker from SRM. The die cuts are from Papertry Ink.

Hope you have a fantastic day! Hugs, TRace

Your red marker is definitely red--unlike mine--and Ranger has already replaced it. Did you mix colors to get the vibrant red?

This background is lovely! What a great idea to colour background stamps with so many different colours. I definitely have to try this one day ...
