This card was made for the Flutter By Wednesday challenge. The challenge this week was an open challenge - anything goes as long as the card included a butterfly, fairy, or angel. Well, just lookie at what image Paulette at Create with TLC, decided to so generously give away this week! As soon as I saw it, I thought FLUTTER BY!!!
How did I do it? Well, I first printed and heat set the image and sentiment. Next was coloring with my colored pencils and loms. After the coloring was completely done, I scored diagonal lines only up to and around the image parts, leaving the image flat. I went back over the score lines using the large end of my scoring tool to get very deep and wide lines. Note: I didn't try to make my lines even, preferring some a bit narrower, and some a bit wider... Next, I distressed with Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink, using the direct to paper method until it looked shabby and old. Last, I covered the entire image with Versamark and Clear UTEE, and heat embossed.
