Best of 2011

Instead of a new release, this month we’re taking images of our choice and reworking, or using them again. Betsy says she gets a lot of request for more art using some of the butterfly images. We all buy images, maybe use them a few times, then move on to new stuff.  So this month, we’re using images from our stash and let me tell you, I used a whole bunch of different images from a lot of different releases. And I’ll mention here that NO Designer Paper was used. A lot of background images and inks were used to create the different looks.

For inspiration on this first card, Betsy provided a link to a couple of pictures and I chose this Montage. I went very literal for my card. For the blue and green background, I used several texture background images from Textured  Backgrounds and Dimensional Elements Edges 1.  For the tan panel, I colored the inside of the embossing folder w/ a green marker and embossed it. All edges were sponged w/ the tea dye and chocolate inks. The frame was shortened to fit the central panel using a SAMJ and after coloring the butterfly w/ markers, I cut it out and attached it on top. The finished ivory card measures 5.5 square.

On the second card, I used sponging and masking to create the main panel. A while back, I saw this card by TheresaCC when she was the featured stamper at Splitcoast. I loved the layout but didn’t have a chance to try it out until now. I stamped and masked the daisies and background leaves then stamped the daisies again on a separate piece of c/s. When I saw that the ribbon placement would cover the original images, I cut out the second set and attached them on top. The pink, blue and green inks were sponged onto the white panel w/ the image masks in place. The finished card measures 4.25 x 5.5.
