Happy Insta Girls Schrott Blog Hop
Hello crafty friends and welcome back to another Happy Insta Girls Blog Hop! We are a group of crafty girls who met on Instagram and want to share our projects with you that we made under a specific topic. Do you remember our last blog hop? We not only made a Christmas themed card but we also send along some ugly crafty stuff that we didn't need/use anymore. Well... now is the time to see what we made out of the received stuff!
But first of all, here is a picture of the scrap material that I received from Birka! I actually wasn't too unhappy with my material and I do like the patterened paper. But nonetheless it took me a long time to make my card and I still don't know whether I like it or not :)
But here is what I made. I used a piece of orange and red patterned paper and die cut two rectangles in different sizes with a cross-stitched rectangle die. From the stamps I received I liked the butterfly the most, so I stamped it on vellum with VersaMark ink and embossed them with gold satin pearl embossing powder which gives them a soft look.
Since I used the orange and red patterned paper I wanted to color in the butterflies with similar colors. I used my ZIG markers (52, 23) trying to let the colors fade to the lighter orange, mixing the red and yellow color on an acrylic block before applying it.
I also received these white pearl stickers. Some time ago I watched a YouTube video (unfortunately, I can't remember who did it) showing how to change them to your needs using Sharpies or any other permanent markers. So I went ahead and colored a few of them orange and red to match the colors that I've already used on my card.
To finish off my scrap card I adhered the butterflies with little glue dots only along the body of the butterfly. This way the wings are not attached and you can pop them up a little bit to give them a bit of dimension. I also used glue dots to attached the pearl stickers.
Thank you for stopping by and have fun hopping along. The next stop is Birka!
