Today’s card is being featured on Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration. The challenge was to CASE the catalog. I scoured the pages for inspiration. What should I do? I narrowed the list down to 10 different cards, then down to 5, then to 3. From the last three contenders I decided to go with a card that caught my eye, but isn't my usual style. I've been trying to stretch my crafting into areas and designs that I are not my go-tos. The card below definitely falls into that category.
Taking the card from the catalog I started to recreate the look. Obviously I made a few changes to the card. First of all, I added a layer of Very Vanilla and changed the colors. I love Wisteria Wonder but don't use it very often. So I went with Wisteria Wonder, my new favorite color Mint Macaron, and a great neutral in Tip Top Taupe. From there, I wanted to tackle the background splatters. How to recreate it? Simple solution: use my Tip Top Taupe marker to "dot" the card. Using both ends of the marker, I created varied spots. It looks even better in person! I stamped and punched my hexagons and arranged them onto the base and then added a sentiment. Finally I cut out my butterfly (way easier than the large butterfly framelit) and finished the card with a pearl.
