BC Awareness Card

Hello crafty friends,
Thank you so much for stopping by. I have a card to share with you today. I made it in honor of breast cancer awareness month, this month.

Here’s my card. I used some more of that yummy paper from the DCWV Primrose Stack collection. Just love it! I tried to follow along a sketch from the Shabby Tea Room Challenge Blog. See below. I used the BC Ribbon Roses digi from PCW.
I colored the image with my Copics (listed below) and then Inked the edges. I used my distressing tool from CTMH. Something I haven’t done in quite some time. But really enjoyed it. Once I was done. I distressing my edges, I inked them to give them that vintage look.

Here is a closer look at the image. Believe it or not, it was printed on plain white paper. I just gently inked into the image to make it look more vintage. Once I was done coloring (copic colors listed below) I used some stickles to outline the flowers. I used some more olive satin ribbon for the bow. You can get some of that yummy ribbon from May Arts. They have such a wide selection of pretty ribbons and trims…love it!

Here is a closer look at the pretty butterflies. I layered the card with a lace doily that I inked as well. I didn’t like the stark white of the doily so I had to distress it to make it blend better with the look of the card. I cut the butterflies out of two different MS punches and then inked the edges. I adhered them in the centers only so that the wings would be free. I bent them up slightly to give them a little “movement”. I finished them off by adding some Bisque liquid Pearls to their centers.

Here’s a closer look at the vellum quote from the Quick Quotes Inspiration Itty Bitty Box. I just trimmed it and added it to a layer of the primrose paper. The paper is decorative enough that you can’t even see my adhesive behind the quote.
