Today's card is for the Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge where the theme is "Monochromatic and Wings".
I love my Tim Holtz Distress Inks, but find I rarely use the colour "Pine Needles" so today I have given centre stage to this colour.
I always struggle to capture, glimmer, shine or sparkle when I photograph a card.
For the base of the card I used a 5" x 5" Crafts Too embossing folder (I can't wait for them to bring out more embossing folders in this size). The main image is Magenta "Lovely Meadow", I stamped this using Pine Needles distress ink and then covered it with Versamark Dazzle "Frost" and heat embossed the whole square with clear embossing powder. The X-Cut punch butterfly was stamped with a Crafty Indivuals Crackle stamp, covered with Versamark Dazzle and spritzed with water to make the ink run a little. The sentiment is from Stampin Up! and has also been stamped in Pine Needles and again covered with Versamark Dazzle.
I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend. I have spent the time enjoying the weather and have severely neglected my laptop, I really must catch up on all your lovely blogs.
Hugs, Clare xx
