PE: Featured Artist at As You See It challenge! Yay!!
Hello and welcome! Today we start a new challenge at Seize the Birthday!
Our host this time, JoAnn, has given us a sketch to work with as the topping . The Topping is an optional challenge, but as long as your project is birthday-related, it’s worthy of entry!
And here’s what I made –
I started with making those little stamp die cuts. To create my own pattern paper for die cutting, I just took a plain white cardstock panel, stamped images using normal inks, then used a little water with a brush to spread the ink a bit. Doing that would blur the image so I stamped each image a couple of times more to add the definition back. Of course, since I was using my MISTI, restamping was easier. I used images from Hero Arts Flower Garden and Kaisercraft Butterflies stamps. I then die cut the panel randomly to get the stamp die cuts. I think the die was a free gift from a Winnie & Walter purchase.
I also used the same technique to stamp the big butterfly, also from Kaisercraft Butterflies stamp. I also added some details using a black fine liner pen and fussy cut it.
I first adhered the stamp die cuts on a grey card stock strip, trimmed it to size and used another strip of grid washi tape behind it and adhered it on the white cardbase. For the sentiment, I used a stamp from Reverse Confetti Tall Blooms. I trimmed it and added a strip of rainbow colored foil washi tape behind it. After adhering this on the cardstock, I also adhered the butterfly on top.
And that’s the card! I’m joining the following challenges as well –
