Same Color Scheme, Different Project!

The card features another fabulous silhouette from SCACD Blank Canvas Collection #2, the Solid Blank Canvas image Solid Blank Canvas and Flights of Botanica set.

This card is the second project created with my spritzed, sprayed, and stenciled papers that I created over the weekend. I created the background by spraying multiple layers of London Blue, Bubblegum Pink, After Midnight, and White Linen Dylusions Sprays and many Mini-Misterfuls of water onto white tags and a sheet 140 lb. watercolor paper.

When I was happy, I sprayed White Linen, then more water over the Flutterby stencil by The Crafter's Workshop, lifted the stencil, and rolled my kitchen roll, aka paper towel, over the paper. Voila. A ghosted image. I dried the paper with my heat gun, then repeated the process to add more layers of butterflies and the scroll elements. I dried the paper again, the sprayed some of White Linen onto the oversprayed inky parts of my craft sheet, then sponged the lightened ink over the stencil to add more layers and interest. I let this air dry whilst I attended to dinner and/or other chores.

When I returned to my craft room, I gave the paper a shot with my heat gun to make sure it was really and truly dry. I stamped the Solid Blank Canvas image Solid Blank Canvas and Flights of Botanica set using Starlite Silver Brilliance ink by Tsukineko. Since it's a pigment ink, I blasted the image with the heat gun to set it.

I used SCACD's gorgeous new Breezy Branches Statement Corner and SCACD's Classic Corners to die cut one of the Dylusioned tags, which I had retrieved from my paper recycling bin in my craft room. I had messed it up while stamping. I sponged Starlite Silver Brilliance ink over all three die cuts, blasted 'em with my heat gun and set them aside.

The Dylusioned and stamped panel was layered onto some lovely shimmery pewter-colored cardstock, then mounted to the card's front. The die cuts were adhered to the corners, and I declared the card complete! Woot.
