Kitty Bee Designs #118 - For Mom/Feminine!

Hi Friends! I hope you've been having a lovely week so far! I've had lots of fun creating projects lately and here's one more for you!  It's time for the midweek inspiration for Challenge #118 - For Mom/Feminine- over at the Kitty Bee Designs Challenge Blog - Aloha Friday!

Challenge #118

Super big thanks to our sponsor for this challenge


Today I'm using the beautiful Sentiment Flower Doodledallion set from Fred She Said Designs, which comes with digital outlines, printables, sentiments and precoloured versions of layers that you can put together in so many ways! I printed out the printable sheet with the square background and several flowers and then I fussy cut each flower to size and sponged on Distress Oxide Inks to give each layer a varied look. I used my new favourite mist - Tattered Angels Chalk Chalkboard Mist, which is a white, semiopaque mist that has a beautiful shimmer, to lightly mist all over my coloured pieces before layering them with foam tape. The Oxide Ink reacts with the mist, but also protects the printed image and my ink did not run at all! 

I used a new Altenew Scallop Builder stencil to layer on Ivory and Pink Distress Oxides on a kraft background. These builder stencils are so fun!! Next I cut out various flowers and stems from my Tim Holtz Funky Floral #3 diecut set using supplies from previous Scrapbook & Cards Today Sampler Kits. I added a bit of white gel pen for detail and added some sequins and enamel dots from the kits.

Lastly, I added a cork butterfly from SpiegelMom Scraps, which they sadly don't carry any more, and then layered a wooden butterfly overtop that I altered with Emerald Creek Charred Gold embossing powder. I love how it changed the look!

  3. This card is so lovely! I really like how you combined so many different shapes and elements so seamlessly. It has delicate elements from the die shapes and great texture from all of the layered components.
