A simple, CASual Friday…

Good morning!!  I know, I know….It’s a Sunday and your seeing a post from me….It”s weird!

I missed being at CHA so much this Summer, I was soaking all of the new fun products and keeping up with all my friends that attended on Facebook and Twitter.

I was hitting all my favorite blogs and catching up on some challenges that I haven’t been able to play along with for some time.


Today I chose to make a simple card for the CASual Friday Challenge.  The challenge was to use a sticker or rub-on in the design.

I chose to use stickers.  I colored the background using an exaggerated feathering technique with Copic Markers (YR04, Y17).  I used Elizabeth Crafts Designs Big Butterflies Peel-Off Stickers.  If you haven’t used these before, they are kind of like two stickers in one.  There is an outline and the middle.  I placed the outline of the butterfly on watercolor paper and colored with Tombow’s and a blender pen.  I then colored over the top with a Copic Spica Red Glitter pen. I then cut it out.  Using an Elizabeth Crafts Transfer Sheet, I transferred the “middle” of the butterfly to the background card stock.  Using glue dots, I adhered the colored butterfly to the card base off center of the “shadow”.  I then stamped the sentiment from my favorite Thank You set, Stampendous Agapanthus Thank You Perfectly Clear Set.


Paper:  Stampin’ Up, Bazzill Basics

Stamps: Agapanthus Thank You (Stampendous)

Stickers: Big Butterflies (ELizabeth Crafts Design)

Ink: Versafine Black Onyx (Tsukineko); YR04, Y17 Sketch, Spica Red Glitter Pen (Copic Marker); Tombow

Thank so much for stopping by today.  I hope you have a great rest of your weekend!!

Absolutely stunning. Love that sunburst effect and I can't believe that butterfly is a sticker. So glad you joined us at CAS-ual Fridays this week!
