I made my card using a monoprint I made using my gel press. I used STAMPlorations Circle Flexi Templates. I also used ARTplorations Burst Slimline Stencil I used STAMPlorations Blossom like a butterfly and STAMPlorations Bloom Happy.
For Watercolor Wednesday on SCS I decided to play along this week. So I pulled out my watercolors and painted with Fall as my inspiration. I then put my two paintings into my Proverbs junk journal. Still practicing my lettering. One thing I learned today when journaling and painting don't do it when you are super tired. I fell asleep painting the leaves on the top one and had to add leaves where I didn't plan because when I fell asleep the paint brush landed on the paper. I also fell asleep while lettering. So that is why my lettering on a couple of words looks a bit off.
Butterflies down a dirt road in Sedona. This card was not a quick card so I felt it needed a good title. The butterflies part is pretty obvious. I added dirt road because I didn't know how this would turn out. I just kept playing and tweaking it to how I wanted. When I came to a crafting "dirt road" I went down it. The Sedona part was added because these colors with the teal and orange and yellows reminds me of falls in Sedona when I was growing up. In Arizona there are not a lot of trees that have leaves that change color. I remember the cottonwood trees turning yellow and that yellow against the red rocks of Sedona with a turquoise colored sky. So Butterflies down a dirt road in Sedona.... Here is the rest of the story.
This morning my friend Pam and I facetime crafted together. We saw theThat challenge was to make a triple cube box card. I like fun folds so of course I had to play along. But I also do things my own way. The tutorial showed using designer paper. I hardly have any designer paper because it is so much more fun to make my own. I took a piece of typing paper and made two monoprint using my gel press. I layered the prints several times. Using fall colors. This first print is the one I cut up for the inside of my card.
This print is the one that I cut up to make the front of my card.
On the inside of my card is the triple cube box pop out. I also added two little pop out butterflies from STAMPlorations Butterfly Row
It is a little thick but I still think it will mail well.
