Hello friends, I had a chance on Saturday to make a card for some other challenges that I have been eyeing this week. I was also in need of a thank you card and I really wanted to make something special. The two challenges that inspired my card are the Mod Squad and the July Inspiration at Verve. I started off making the striped background with those beautiful colors using a SU stencil. I then proceeded to do some ink lifting after I sponged the two smaller card panels. I love the effect of something so simple as water! I then decided the panels still needed an extra something so I heat embossed the hearts on the bottom and top of the two pieces. The butterfly is also heat embossed. The leaves were sponged in the tangerine color before they were cut out with a small Sizzix leaf die. All the stamps are from Verve!
I hope you are having a fabulous day!
We finally got some much needed rain yesterday to help make this heat a little more bearable. Take care, Nanc’
