grape & glitter

Odd combination! Over at Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge the theme for this times challenge, which ends this evening is G for the colour grape and/or glitter.

I was going to do a card but took a hint decided to do another altered playing card, after posting my first ever one the other day.

Do Crafts Geometric Mono stamps
Stazon ink: vibrant violent, blazing red, jet black
Indigo Blu sentiment
Hot off the Press 'Soft Nostalgia' paper pack
Glittery foam butterfly

I put a thin layer of white Gesso on the card, as it is quite shiny and the ink etc would rub off. Waited till it was dry, doesn't take long, then randomly stamped the red triangular pattern on, again waited a few minutes so I didn't smudge the ink and then did the same with the black honeycomb stamp. Waited then stamped the sentiment 3 times, unfortunately  the purple wasn't that bright against the background and you could hardly see it, so I then had to have a rethink. Decided to stamp onto a scrap piece of card and then using the red ink I smudged lightly to blend it in with the background - made a sentiment topper.
Stuck the butterfly on, then fussy cut round some flowers from the  paper in the HotP kit to fill the spaces.

  1. I love your ATC. So much packed onto such a tiny space. The butterfly looks good. Thankyou for fluttering by my challenge where your ATC will be entered into the draw twice. Hugs Mrs A.
