Butterfly CAS

Hello Peeps!

I used this week's STAMPlorations Bi-weekly sketch # 28 which ends on 27/2 and The Sweetest Thinsg Sketch # 256 for this card :







Here is my take on the sketch:


I was very excited to use a butterfly on my card; the reason being that I came across a lot of beautiful inspirations in our Blog-Land so I decided to use it! I think every Crafter MUST use a butterfly atleast once in her crafting career! :P


I used a freebie butterfly clipart and fuzzy cut it out. I colored it using Wild Honey distress ink from Tim Holtz. I adhered the butterfly to the card using a foam tape.

For the card, the background is a water color card stamped with "Bo Bunny -to the point Stamp Set" using wild honey distress ink. (I used a round Bokeh stamp!)

For the layer, I created a Bokeh Effect using a Fall Leaf Stencil which i bought from the local store. I am loving this Bokeh technique! It's so fresh! I firstly sprintz water and added wild honey and moved lawn distress ink over it. Then I stenciled the leaves using the same colours. I masked the white colored leaves which gave this sheet the required Bokeh effect! :) Stenciling technique has miscellaneous uses! The current challenge for Craft Stamper is Stenciling. (which ends on 25/2)


I stamped the sentiment using Versamark and Gold embossing powder. I had a hard time capturing the golden color..! I tried and shadowed it using a black pilot pen!

The stamp used is from Bo Bunny Stamp Set.

Here is another look of the card!



I am also entering this card for Addicted to CAS challenge# 57 (ends on 27/2) which says us to use MASKing technique for a CAS card which I have used for the Bokeh Technique. :)
