CBC - White/Breathe
This weeks Created Byhand Challenge is Breathe and/or White. I immediately thought of this quote from Quietfire... which I really like!!!! The huge challenge for me was keeping my card mostly white... I could not believe how tough it was for me to do!!!! This is a regular size card 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"... a folded white base. The next layer is slightly smaller... I painted white cardstock with Lumiere super sparkle paint, let it dry and embossed it with the Tim Holtz embossing folder rays. The quote is stamped on white cardstock with Archival Ink sepia. The butterflies are stamped on white cardstock with Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder... to give the design a little definition I sponged Distress Ink antique linen over and around the butterflies, cleaned off the embossing powder with a damp cloth, and cut them out. White pearls added to the body of the butterflies. Roses ribbon is from Tim Holtz trimmings pack.
Challenge blog entry is Here. Challenge ning forum post is Here. Both include links to all the supplies for this card. We'd love to have you join along with the challenge if you have time!!!!
