Choose to shine - a card for AALL & Create

 Hello everyone, 

Welcome to my blog where I am sharing a card for AALL & Create today. I am a little obsessed with rainbow colours at the moment so I decided to use them for this card. 

And here's how:

First I embossed this stamp on my card panel. I used white embossing powder by WOW. 

Here is is a little clearer. 

I then used Distress Oxide inks to colour the panel. I used 'Carved Pumpkin', 'Mustard Seed', 'Cracked Pistachio', 'Broken China' and 'Wilted Violet'. I smooshed the pads on my craft sheet one at a time, dunked and dried. I repeated this until I was happy.

Next: I used some of the circles of the bottom right stamp to add some more interest to the panel. 

I also added some washi tape. 

The focal images is the butterfly from the left bottom stamp. I wanted to keep it black and white to make it stand out more and that is what I did. I just added some shading. 

The sentiment came from this set and a stamped it onto the blank edge of this book paper.

I matted the sentiment onto black card and also went around the card with a blending tool and black ink to edge it. 

I then matted the panel on black card stock and then glued it onto a card blank. 

I really like how it came out.

I have used the following stamps & washi tape:

Stamp #459 - Lined Triangles by Bipasha Bk
Stamp #451 - In the Bucket by Tracy Evans
Stamp #449 - Through the meadows by Tracy Evans
Washi tape #17 - Mix & Match by Janet Klein
