I'm posting this card for the Inspiration Challenge this weekend on SCS that I'm hosting. The website I chose is called "My Deco" and it is a collection of boutique items from all around the world!
The inspiration piece I chose is this "Corsica Tablecloth". I loved the colors and contrast of the teal, white and black.
For the background of my card, I started by stamping flowers from SU's Stippled Blossoms set in black Memento Ink. I then added white crayon to random areas that I wanted to remain white. (The crayon acted as a resist to the ink in the next step.) I then added sponged on Tim Holtz "Broken China" distress ink all over with a felt applicator.
I die cut a Cheery Lynn Designs "Doily Dies" frame and adhered it to my background. I then added a couple of paper roses I had already made (Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms) to the lower right corner of the frame.
Next die cut two of the butterflies from the "Exotic Butterfly" dies set by Cheery Lynne. I temporarily positioned them inside the frame to figure out where I was going to put my sentiment. Once I figured that out, I set the butterflies aside and gold embossed my sentiment from "Perfectly Penned" by SU inside the frame.
Finally, I permanently adhered the butterflies back onto the card, added some Ranger Platinum stickles and Jolees jewels for a little glam. And here's the result...
TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
