I love this Daffodils & Anise set from Mark's Finest Papers. There just seems to be so many different types of cards I can make with the set. With that in mind, I chose it for this last week's Speedy The Cat things with wings challenge.
After stamping my images twice in memento tuxedo black ink on white card stock and coloring them with prismacolor markers, I set one of the daffodil images aside to cut out later with both of the butterfly images. Taking the floral screen Cuttlebug embossing folder, I ran the card itself through my Big Shot before stippling Stampin Up! pacific pointe and bashful blue inks around the daffodil image and layering. Once my image was layered, I took a black marker and created a faux stitched line around the image, added some black Making Memories baby brads and added it to the card.
After adding some black stitched ribbon to the side with a Mark's Finest Papers hat pin before popping up my cut out daffodil image. Once both of my butterfly images were cut out, they were added to the card. I then pinched the wings up of one butterfly to give some extra dimension before adding some ice stickles for added sparkle.
Thanks for stopping by today. If you haven't participated in one of the Speedy The Cat challenges, you really should. They're a lot of fun and there's a random prize awarded each week to a participant.
