My card today uses one challenge from two challenge blogs. Of course, it was fun to play along.
It represents some firsts for me and since I love to experiment, I was happy. The main focus is lots of white. I started out using a stencil and some Gesso. Once I had my card front covered with the Gesso, I sprinkled some Pearl embossing powder on the stenciled design. I heated the embossing powder now but that did take awhile since the Gesso was wet. In the inspiration piece, I saw a green butterfly although it just might be gold. I did have it in mind though that I wanted to use a green butterfly against all of the white.
I tried to catch a lot of light so you could really see the Pearl embossing powder. Because I had to heat it for awhile, the embossing powder started bubbling up and I thought that really added to the finished look. The banner pieces are cut strips of vellum. The little banner piece and sentiment are from Clearly Besotted.
And for a photo...
