Spread your wings – more MMCC card challenge inspiration

Time for one more butterfly inspired card! As you might remember, this months challenge at The Mixed Media Card Challenge blog is all about butterflies (and gold).  I hope you have found time to play along with us this month – and if you haven´t there actually still is a little time to join in..

This is my second card based on this months theme:

For this one I first used a butterfly stamp from a Finnabair stamp set „Don´t forget to fly“. First stamped with VersaMark ink, then applied golden embossing powder and heat set it. After that I took some spray inks (green, yellow, blue) and colored the butterflies with them very freely.

I then added a golden yarn around the card, stamped a sentiment on a strip of white carstock, layered 3 flowers from my stash on top of each other and then applied some „Mini Prills“ in the middle. For final touches I added some blue Glimmer Glaze splatters here and there and glued the background on a blue card base.

Now hop over to the MMCC blog for more card inspiration and submit your creation here. Have fun!!! Hope to see you there,

xxx, Sanna

Freedom – MMCC June challenge, Vol. 2

Hello there and happy Monday!! Time to share some more Mixed Media Card Challenge blog inspiration again. For this months challenge you need to create a COLLAGE and as an optional element you can add a FRAME. Just click the above picture to get to the challenge page for more information.

This is the second card I created:

I again used bits and pieces of paper, washi tape, ribbon and border stickers, added layers of ink/stamping and/or stenciled paste over the areas and then used my Big Shot to die cut some butterflies from those paper pieces. Finally I added some enamel dots for additional decoration and my card was done.

Then I went along and painted a watercolor background with a Tattered Angels (patina) Glimmer Mist onto the card base, added some rubber stamp images (stamps by Finnabair) and sentiments. After that I just glued the butterflies down onto the card base and cut the residues off.

I will be sharing some more cards I created for this challenge later on this month and I hope you will come back to take a look ;-).

Have fun creating,
