Thank You Card using Fluttering Embossing Folder from Stampin’ Up!
Last week, when I was creating my first project for the Create with Connie and Mary blog challenge, I also came up with the card below. I do tend to end up making two or three projects at the same time sometimes. It’s hardly surprising that my craft room ends up looking a complete mess all the time! lol!
I embossed a panel of water colour card with the Fluttering Embossing folder from Stampin’ Up! ® and soaked it with water on what I call the reverse side – i.e. the side that is debossed or indented! . I then took the Soft Sky, Pool Party and Marina Mist refill ink bottles and dropped a few drops of each in lines along the width of the card, starting with Soft Sky and ending with Marina Mist to create an ombre effect. I picked up the card stock and tilted it this way and that to get the ink to cover it all and then laid if flat to dry. You can see where the ink pooled in some of the butterflies, which I really like.
I used up the rest of the strip of Silver Glimmer paper I had used on the Connie and Mary card, and then spent an age uhmming and ahhing over what colour butterfly to add to the top. In the end I settled on Whisper White, as I felt it fit the softness of the water coloured background best.
What do you think? I hope you like it?
