SCS DTGD Texture Challenge

Whew! Glad to be back here in blog land! It's been a busy week!
Looks like I am on a butterfly kick! Here is a card I made for a Dare to Get Dirty Challenge over on Splitcoaststampers this weekend. The challenge was to use texture on your card. Here are some details:

  1. The butterflies were cut with the Big Shot and inked with Encore Gold ink.

  2. The large buttlerfly was embossed with Glassy Glaze 3 times, put in the freezer for a few minutes and then cracked by bending the butterfly wings gently. I then rubbed a sponge dauber inked with Soft Suede into the cracks.

  3. The two smaller butterflies were inked with Gold Encore ink, then I put a drop of VersaMark refill onto a old paintbrush and dabbed it onto the butterflies before embossing with Glassy Glaze. I didn't melt it all the way so as to leave that textured look.
  4. I stamped EnFrancais on the card base with Soft Suede and in VersaMark on the designer paper before embossing with gold.

  5. I gold embossed the silver hardware then trimmed down to the oval with Craft and Rubber Scissors.

  6. All pieces were ink distressed with Soft Suede and upper right corners were rounded.

Let me know if you have questions. Thanks for stopping by!---Lisa
