CCC MAY 15 AND JUNE 15 butterfly dream - the TCW stencil card with hanging thingummies...
I'd already started to create my CCC card when it suddenly occurred to me to check the sketch.
OOOPS!! I GOT THE WRONG MONTH'S SKETCH!!!
What to do.....well, it's a 'hello' card, so I guess that fits the category of FRIENDSHIP, right?
Skinny, but it works for me!!!
My background came about after watching Sanna speak Finnish...
You know, for FUN! Not....actually, it was a video on techniques using stencils/masks!
And since I'd recently gotten the above stencil from RONDA PALAZZARI...made sense to go with that!
And despite the Finnish, it got me motivated!
I used Versamark ink through the stencil, followed by pouring different embossing
powders over top, then heat setting.
With the layered up circles on top, I used my ink pens through the same stencil.
Then I used my circle punches to cut them out.
BTW...that wood triangle on the right? Coated in.... glitter NAIL POLISH!!!!
Love the CCC......it's once a month......an international card swap.
Free and open to y'all!!!
And here's what I did for June's card. This time I followed the RIGHT sketch.
I kept the colour scheme fairly monochromatic:
The little bird is cut out of a canvas tag from Mary B - as are the nail polish silver glittered up hearts:)
The bg paper is left over paint swiped through a stencil rather than tossing it.
Yvonne Yam influenced, there!
Now since my sewing machine has decided to forgive me and actually zig zag
[til I stick it up with more glue, I'm guessing!]...
...I took advantage of it!!!
I really enjoy the CCC......as I've said!
Thanks for looking!
I hope these inspire you in your own creativity in some way
