Well I’m back to my usual procrastination. I have to send out a swap later today, and I just finished it. Luckily I had already completed the perfect background.
For the background of the card I used an experiment. I had been playing with a stamp resist technique. To achieve the background on this card I sponged a sheet of White Daisy card stock with Gypsy and Lagoon ink. I then placed my feather stamp (C1584) on a block and sprayed it with our spritz cleaner. I placed the wet stamp onto the still wet ink I had just sponged onto the cardstock. The result was the image you see above with faint and sort of watery feathers.
To finish the ATC, I added some butterfly stamps from Your Own Kind of Wonderful (D1627). I stamped the larger butterfly in Lagoon ink on Lagoon cardstock and added clear sparkles to the wings. I also used 3D foam tape to give the butterfly a bit of pop. I hope my swap partner likes it 🙂
