Here's the Picture inspiration...for the challenge
For my Design Team Project I have picked out the colours from the colour scheme to use in my project. I made a cute little easel card that could be used for any occasion
I picked out a patterned backing paper, complementary coloured cardstock in colours similar to the colour scheme and some silver mirror board for layering.
I created the easel card using a 6x6 cardblank and half of another 6x6 cardblank this time with a scalloped edge.
The Backing paper I chose to use is A5 and I managed to make this card using only one sheet. First I trimmed a piece to a few mm smaller than the 6x6 cardblank to use on the base of the easel card i then layered using a green cardstock and silver mirror board. For the card front I trimmed a piece of lavendar cardstock to a few mm smaller than the scalloped edge, I then layered with silver mirror board. I trimmed the offcut from the A5 backing paper and attached to the left side of the card front.
I made the easel stopper using offcuts from the cardstock and papers, layer on top of each other and fixed in place using foam tape to created the raised stopper.
for the topper I cut a piece of linen cardstock which I then make an inky painty background using sage and pink inkpads, a waterbrush and an ink blender tool. I then stamped the Large Butterfly solid stamp (from the 'Butterfly Peridae' set) at a jaunty angle using a mauve ink. I added a sparkle trail using wet glue and dazzle dust glitter. I inked the edges using versamark ink which I then dipped into Snowflake Tinsel' embossing powder which i then heated using a heat gun.
I stamped and embossed the Large Butterfly details stamp (also from 'Butterfly Peridae') using versamark and the same embossing powder as before onto vellum. I fussy cut the butterfly, shaped the wings with a bone folder tool to created depth. i attached over the butterfly i had stamped previously using wet glue. The vellum butterfly gives the ellusion of movement to the wings. for the body i used a few little wooden substrate pieces from the 'Mixed Media blank accessories' pack.
To finish I stamped the 'Don't be Afraid to Sparkle' sentiment stamp and the little antenae using grey ink.
I fixed the finished topper to the card front using foam tape for dimension.
So, it's time to create anything, use the picture or colours as inspiration as always be sure you use at least one paperbabe stamps product in your creations, HAVE FUN, and don't forget to link your project over on the Paperbabe Blog
