This card that I’ve created is for two challenges hosted by Lilypad and YoungCraftersUnite wherein one requires resist techniques and the other colour. So I coupled the two techniques and incorporated it into one card.
I’ve broken out two new stamp sets (to me) so was pretty excited to use it. I’m starting to like the Tim Holtz distress look and love his tags so wanted to experiment with the idea. This being the first time, I’m quite happy with the result.
I embossed Kraft cardstock from PTI with the Hero Arts Woodgrain background stamp and then used Staz On Timber Brown and Colour Box – Chestnut Roan to colour the embossed image for the resist technique.
For the tag, I did the same thing using SU! En Francais stamp set and embossed it with white embossing powder then with a sponge dauber coloured it using a variety of green inks.
The butterflies are from the Hero arts stamp set – Engraved Etchings and I coloured them using water colour pencils and the aqua painter.
