Theresa Momber posted a Color Challenge on StampTV. You must go look at her beautiful card here. She has designed a new set called "Timeless Treasures". I do not have this set yet, but isn't her card beautiful. The color challenge is to use Peach and Ivory. I love these colors together so decided to submit a card in this challenge.
I decided to use Gina's "Take Flight" butterfly. I know I use this set a lot. I do love this butterfly. I used a piece of parchment paper and used a coral chalk ink to stamp the butterfly. I didn't use Vellum -- there is a difference between parchment paper and vellum. After stamping it, it looked "wet" so I decided to emboss it with clear, detail embossing powder. Usually chalk ink dries really quick but maybe because I used parchment paper it stayed wet enough to emboss. Anyway, it worked perfect for me. I just realized, I didn't color on this card!
I used a scrap piece of designer paper for the background which had the perfect colors for this project. I used Melanie's "Arranged With Love" set for the verse. I think the verse, and font, are perfect for this card. The frame was cut with the Nestabilities "classic" frame. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the border and tied a bow around it. I decided to add some layered Prima flowers and pearls to finish it off. I love the delicate look of this card.
Now I need to go add it to my StampTV page and into the challenge. Thanks for visiting my blog. I always love to read your comments.
