Good Morning Creatives!
Today I am sharing a quick card I recently made for Butterbee Scraps.
For this card, I kept things simple:
Card Base (Canvas Corp)
Stickers (Hobby Lobby)
Gel Prints (Gel Press)
When I sat down in my studio, I had all of these BEAUTIFUL prints I had made with my Gel Press Gel Plates that I knew I wanted to tie in with my Butterbee Scraps metal arrows. .
I wanted to keep my card simple so that my arrows were really POP and stand out.
I tore my Gel prints to keep them rustic and added some Tim Holtz Distress ink to give it a grungy look.
If you look at the arrows when they are naked, you can see that they each have a small hole on the feather end. This makes them SUPER easy to thread on wires or necklaces or bracelets or WHATEVER! However, since I was doing a “flat” project, I didn’t want the holes to show. To hide them, I added some BEAUTIFUL Butterbee Scraps Glass Rhinestones.
So I know today’s card isn’t as “fancy” as some of my others, but I hope it challenges you to gather just a few supplies and create on a “supply budget.” It makes you think of new ways to look at things and maybe think back to old techniques that maybe you hadn’t used in a while. For me, that was the “tearing” technique I used on the paper, as well as using my Distress Ink to give my project a messy look.
I hope you will check out Butterbee Scraps full line of amazing embellishments and check out her blog for more amazing, yummy projects!
Until next time,
