Crafty Cardmakers - Triple B Challenge

Hello Everyone!

It's time for another challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers! Thank you to everyone who played with us last time, there were so many wonderful projects! What a feast for the eyes!

I am hosting my first ever challenge (how exciting!) and I have chosen Challenge #124 - The Triple 'B' Challenge for my first time as hostess. You need to use at least 3 of the 5 options below on your project. Not 3 of the same thing, but 3 different things. You can use all five if you want, but not less than 3.

BUTTERFLIES - BLUE - BIRTHDAY - BANNER - BUTTONS

For my card, I chose Butterflies, Birthday and Blue



The flowers are cut using Spellbinders Create-A-Carnation and coloured with Tim Holtz distress ink Dusty Concord and Hero Arts shadow ink Summer Sky. The purple was too dark for my taste so I made a wash with diluted DecoArt Titanium White paint and then coated all of the flowers to dull down the colour.

The white roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.


The tag is cut from Tim Holtz Tiny Tabs and Tag. I used a crackle medium and grey and white paint to get the porcelain look on the background. The sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations All Seasons.

The background was stamped using Hero Arts shadow ink London Fog and Impression Obsession Woodgrain background stamp. The doily is cut from a Memory Box Whimsy Circle die.




The butterflies and corner embellishment are made from Martha Stewart molds and polymer clay. I took some Ranger White Opal Perfect Pearls, watered it down and painted it on the butterflies for some subtle glitter.


I am entering my card into the following wonderful challenges:

(Happy 5th Birthday to Crafty Catz and the whole team!)


That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. I read and appreciate every single one! If you have any questions, please let me know.
