Hello there! Are you surprised to find me back at my blogger blog? Not surprised, and knew I'd be back? Don't really care either way? LOLOL!! Well I'm back! I was quite unhappy with the other platform, it just didn't work for me on many levels, plus I had to pay for it...so it was a no-brainer to just come on back to my Blogger blog. It always feels right to come home;)
Today, I'm here with a card using the amazing new Pink Power stamp set from Verve. As you probably already know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Chiatali designed this set in honor of her Mother who is right now battling this disease. I don't personally know anyone fighting Breast Cancer, but I know that so many out there do. I think this stamp set is amazing and would be perfect for creating cards for your friend or family member fighting breast cancer.
I decided to use the beautiful butterflies in the stamp set for my card today. I embossed them in white on a piece of watercolor paper. Next, I ran a couple pink Tombow markers over the butterflies and then, with a wet, round paintbrush, moved the ink around. I just ADORE these markers and the fabulous watercolor effect I get with them. They are one of the best crafty investments I've made!
I stamped the little trail of stars in white and black ink around the butterflies and then applied some glue and chunky glitter. I found that glitter at Walmart for like 3 bucks and loved it when I saw it. It reminds me of bokah, and it's so shiny and gorgeous!
I spritzed a bit of pink Heidi Swapp Colorshine on a piece of cardsock and then cut the ribbon out with the Ribbon die from that pink misted cardstock.
