First off the name of this challenge is just too skinkin cute “Purple Lightning”. When I saw the directions for this step card it seem quite straight forward. The first proto-type did take slightly more time but this one was very fast. I keep a stash of cutouts from my Silhouette on my work space so everything used here was in that box. Thanks Patty Bennett for the simple and useful directions you can link HERE. Making the bow took the most time.
This all started with some glossy photo paper that I laid a stencil on and sprayed a green sparkle. Once dry I laid another stencil of small squares that was still wet from a different color of green sparkle for just a hint of color and pattern. Cut this down to fit the square cs base. For the topper, which is silhouette cut and embellished with black splatter and green glossy accents, I let it hang over the top. All the butterflies are Silhouette cut and the colors are sparkle paste. Tons of shine and not a bit a loose glitter anywhere.
I have had these separate images from Bugaboo for a few years and never put them together. Colored with Copics, die cut with dots and rectangle then layered on Turquoise cs. Tag is Silhouette cut and sponged in peach then sentiment stamped in black ink.
Saw this challenge and knew this was one to sink my teeth into. The b&w stripe was computer generated. Daisies were stamped in black so I could scan and cut them on my Silhouette. Sentiment is also cut on silhouette several times and stacked. Centers of flowers are prills and embossing folded was used on step card base.
The bg is the sheet of cs that the sentiment was placed on in the previous post. Added another sentiment cut out that was sponged in turquoise. Die cut rectangle then layered on Turquoise cs base. Added glossy accents to the letters only of the top sentiment.
