The following card is for my Guest Design turn for Starving Artistamps. I will have a few more to share in the next few days! This card uses the Poppies from the Large Silhouette Collection and the Pretty Backaground.
The base of my card is Basic Black with a mat of Memory Box ~ Sprout decorative paper. For the main focal image I first stamped the pretty background using Anna Griffin Purple on Whisper White cardstock. I found the purple ink, unopened in my drawer so I thought, what the heck, I'll use it! It actually has a little shimmer to it. I had gotten it at Michael's a LONG time ago!!! Anyway, I then used post it notes and masked off the thin white edge I left along the outside of the pretty background so when I stamped the silhouettes, they wouldn't come down to the white edge. I first stamped the Baby's Breath Silhouette using the same lavender ink. I then stamped the Poppies using Basic Black ink. I stamped the Small Freak butterfly using Black Stazon and then stamped it again on vellum paper. Once it dried, I colored the back of the butterfly with my Pale Plum marker. I adhered it on top of the butterfly I first stamped using my Quickie Glue pen. The ribbon along the bottom is narrow white organdy and the polka dot ribbon is from May Arts. I used a silver buckle from the new SU! Hodgepodge kit and I added the same Heidi Swapp clear crystals that I put around the centers of the two poppies to the ridge of the buckle. I broke the crystals apart and glued them INDIVIDUALLY on to the buckle!!! I used my Quickie glue pen for a change!!! I glued the ones on the center of the flowers with my glue pen too. I added green MAMBI crystals to the centers of each flower. I then matted the focal piece on Basic Black cardstock.
I hope you like it and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!!!
Have a great night!
