Welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop! This month we are CAS(e)ing a member of the blog hop team. I am CAS(e)ing the talented and creative Teri West, Alaska Stamper. It was super fun to look through her blog. I had a tough time trying to decide what to CASE, there were so many great cards! I spent a lot of time and finally decided on this one. I love the color palette, layout, blending and well everything about her card.
I love the blending Teri did. I used similar colors Pacific Point, Balmy Blue, and Night of Navy for the background. I am not as comfortable/skilled with the Blending Brushes so I used Stampin' Sponges which I just realized that Stampin' Up!® no longer sells. I guess I need to practice with the Blending Brushes!
Instead of sequins I watered down some White Craft ink and flicked it on to the background using a Water Painter. I used Basic Black cardstock and Black Glitter paper (returning in August in the Mini Catalog) to create the silhouettes using the Meadow dies. I wrapped Black Baker's twine around the card and tied on a Tailor Made Tag. The sentiment is from the Through It Together stamp set.
Are you wondering how I got the butterfly facing this way? I cut it with the die cutting edge facing the non glittery side of the paper. Inside you can see I also added another silhouette. One last thing, I used the Tasteful Textile 3D folder on the front of the card base.
