Today I thought I’d have a go at the Etsy Inspired Challenge. We needed to use photos from Tony Carlisle’s Photo Gallery as inspiration for making a card or scrap page. Nothing sprang to mind on how I was going to make a card using Tony’s images as inspiration, Below is the image I eventually used to make my card.
Today is also the day I got around to playing with some of my new Distress Inks. I put the challenge to the back of my mind while I messed about making background papers. As I was making a green paper, my ideas started coming together as to how I could make a card and this is what I made.
I made my paper with Peeled Paint and Scattered Straw inks onto watercolour paper. I used a Magenta butterfly rubberstamp, stamped with Whisper White craft ink and clear embossed. I made a puddle of Black Soot ink on a palette and aquabrushed the butterfly black. I also lightly stamped a stem from Stem Silhouettes (SU!) onto the background.
I liked how this card turned out. I might go and make some more, experimenting with different colour combos. Thanks for dropping by for a look.
