Another Challenge card




I`m back... two days in a row!

Had a low key day today. I`ve been feeling a bit achy in a few joints due to the weather, and I just couldn`t get myself moving quickly enough to get to church today. I feel really badly about it this time, in particular, because I missed a baptism.

I did continue to get caught up on my reading, which was good. And I finished the card for this challenge, which was even better. It`s another one that was designed by Kathy at Crafty Capers. I made some mistakes and ended up having to change the layout. The purple panel was meant to be one piece in the original design, for example.

The thing I loved the most about this project was playing with alcohol inks. I have really begun to love that medium. I have only picked up a few bottles for now. I don`t want to get too many as I`m not sure how often I`ll use them.

The challenges this cared is for are:

AAA Cards - Anything Goes







Here is the card:


The images are all Ranger/Tim Holtz. The alcohol inks are Adirondack. I can`t remember what colours I used. The front butterfly was fussy cut and raised with 3D foam for dimension and then I applied stickles for some colour and sparkle.
