Victorine Originals ~ Challenge #9 ~ Wings

Good Morning Dreamerz,

Today is the start of Challenge #9 on the Victorine Originals BlogThe theme for this challenge is: "WINGS".  Here's my inspiration for you using:
Wings Set 10580-X

Card Recipe:
I used an acrylic block with the 2 wings set very close together and stamped them in a random pattern on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 120lb card stock using versafine embossing ink along with WOW Clear Gloss Super Fine embossing powder.

I used Distress inks and a blending tool to blend the Theme colors onto the embossed layer, once I was happy with my blending I flicked water using my fingers onto the layer, let sit for a few seconds and then used a paper towel to blot up any excess water which gives a very soft subtle distressed look to the layer. For the top layer with the sentiment I found a quote online that I have really loved for many years and I used my Serif Craft Artist 2 program to type the text and get it just the way I wanted, once I was satisfied I printed it off then cut the layer as shown in the finished project, I stamped one last butterfly using Antique Linen Distress Oxide and then again using my ink blending tool I went around the edges giving a soft subtle shade of color. Lastly I attached the butterfly layer to a top folding A2 sized piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 120lb card stock, added a layer of fun foam cut to size on the sentiment layer and attached to top of butterfly layer. For water drop embellishments I used Kat Scrappiness Sparkling Clear Droplets in assorted sizes
