Super Cool Card with Jess Featuring My Favorite Things
It's so exciting to be back on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog today. I've missed sharing with you guys! For today's project, I focused on My Favorite Things products for a super cute card. See what I did there?
To get started, I did some ink blending with Distress Oxides. I used Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, and Seedless Preserves. I absolutely love this color combination. Once I finished my blending, I used some clean water and the Splatter Brush from Tim Holtz/Ranger to add specks of water all over my panel. I also grabbed some white paint and the Rays stencil from Tim Holtz to add some interest to the sky. I set this aside to dry.
I decided this background was worthy of a super hero, so I grabbed the new (to me) You're Super set from MFT. I've had my eye on this set for AGES, so I'm thrilled to finally have the chance to use it. I stamped out the adorable super hero and colored her up using Copic markers. I die cut her mask from glitterstock and used the coordinating dies to cut her out as well.
For the city skyline, I cut 5 of the cities from black cardstock using the coordinating die set. I love that you can use this with or without the stamped image. I layered them all in an overlapping pattern and then adhered them to my blended background.
I used a strip of black card stock and my Mini MISTI to heat emboss the sentiment from Sassy Pants Birthday Greetings. I laughed out loud when I read this one, so I knew I had to use it. I thought it went really well with the super hero theme, too!
I popped the whole background up on foam tape, adhered my super hero to the front, and shaded the area around her feet with a warm grey Copic marker to help ground her. To finish off the card, I added a few clear sequins. That's it! The card is finished and I don't think I could love it any more.
Hugs and love to you all,
