thank you

Lets get straight to it shall we?! This card is for todays class at Online Card Classes which concentrates on shaped cards. I don't have a lot of larger dies, so this card is quite tiny - it uses the largest of the Spellbinders labels 4 dies.



Supplies: Stamps - Hero Arts newspaper background, antique engravings, thank you messages; Inks - Distress Inks peeled paint, broken china, pumice stone Versacolor split pea, Hero Arts shadow ink wet cement, Versafine onyx black; Dies - Spellbinders labels 4, circles; Ribbon - Papertrey Ink

I must admit to being very inspired by Cristina's card here where she used neutrals with black die cuts and a pop of colour. Thanks for the inspiration Cristina! For my card base I added the newspaper background from Hero Arts in wet cement ink before inking the edges with pumice stone Distress Ink. The main embellishment is similar to one I created for my Dirty Dozen gallery last month. I masked a circle on white card stock and applied ink directly to the paper before sewing around and around. Finally I die cut the circle out then added the butterfly coloured with distress inks and the sentiment.

This card turned out to be quite detailed and inky for me - not so much my CAS style but it's always good to mix things up a bit!

I'm going to pop this over to Hero Arts April challenge gallery  for their shaped card element. Until tomorrow :) Although tomorrow will be quite busy with my CASE study card and For Your Inspiration card as well.
