Over at Moxie Fab World there are lots of fun challenges to kick start our creativity.
This card is for the 'Make your own background paper' challenge.
I decided to challenge myself and instead of doing a repetitive pattern, I used a collection of stamps and distress ink to create a watercolour background. The stamps are mostly from Kaisercraft and Pink Paislee.
The sentiment is die cut, inked with an ombre effect and then coated with glossy accents. The butterfly is die cut and then stamped and distressesed to match the background. I machine stitched a border for contrast.
I can see lots of mistakes (i.e. the words should be closer together), but I'm quite happy with the overall effect.
