I’m celebrating Friday with this beautiful white rubber stamp set called Flights of Fancy. I created two cards using this set; one black and one white. I would love if you would comment below which is your favorite.
Both of the butterflies on the cards were created with watercolor on white watercolor cardstock. Yes, even the black card was created in part with white cardstock.
To get started, I grabbed my Misti and removed the foam piece. Since I am using rubber stamps, the extra height from the foam is not needed. Next, I prepped the white watercolor cardstock with an anti static bag. The images were then inked up with Color Hive clear ink. Next, Nuvo Gold Enchantment embossing powder was sprinkled over the now sticky stamped image. To melt this glittery embossing powder, I started heating it up with my heat tool from the back of the paper. This prevents all of that beautiful glitter from flying away. Once the powder had melted a bit, I then moved the heat gun to the front of the image to finish melting the powder.
All of the images were then cut apart and Mission watercolors (#551, #512, 561, 566) were used to color them. Once the images were dry, they were fussy cut leaving a small white border. To create the look of an entirely black background, the white areas around the images were then colored in with a black Copic marker. Anything can be used for this; a Sharpie, a fineliner etc.
The card base was then created using a 5 ½ x 5 ½ piece of black cardstock and a 5 ¾ x 5 ¾ piece of white cardstock as a mat. The butterfly trail stamp was then stamped and god embossed on the background of the black cardstock.
A 1/8 piece of foam tape was added between the detailed butterfly image and the solid butterfly image. These were adhered together to create dimension. All images were then adhered to the black cardstock and this panel was adhered to the white mat.
A sentiment from the Maker Forte set, Love and Courage, was gold embossed onto a white piece of cardstock, cut and adhered.
To complete the card, several Crown Jewels in Rah Rah Skirt were added.
The process was then repeated on the second card with the exception of coloring the white areas around the images.
So, which one do you like better?
I hope you create something today! Thanks so much for stopping by!
