What a Hoot!!! Featured Stamper Challenge
Sunday is Featured Stamper Challenge Day over at Splitcoast! Today's Featured stamper just happens to be one that I admire and a fellow Hanna Stamps Design Team Member, Frances!
Why is it a Hoot???? Well, because Frances is also known as Stamp Owl. She Hails from Australia (which just happens to be my number one dream vacation destination) and I have been a fan of her creations for quite some time!
The Challenge is to CASE the Featured Stamper's Card while changing a few elements and keeping some the same. I cased THIS CARD
You really must check out her Fabulous Gallery
In addition, if you follow the link on my Hanna Stamps Design Team sidebar, you can have a look at her fabulous Blog.
For my card, I used DP from Basic Grey's Mellow line. I also used Turquoise and Chocolate Chip Cardstock and Turquoise Grograin Ribbon, all from Stampin' Up! The main Butterfly image is from the Garden Whimsy Set. I stamped the Butterfly in Turquoise on Vanilla Cardstock. Then I coloured over the antennae with Chocolate Chip Marker. I then stamped the image on Vellum with Versamark ink and embossed with Hologram EP. I cut the body out, punched holes in the image with my Cropodile and layered this over the main image. Brads and layering the sentiment in graduated oval punches adds some additional dimension as does the sponging to the edges of the main image.
