Be Original

Hello there - thank you for popping in for a visit.  Today I have an 'arty/mixed media' card to share with you - I had a lot of fun stamping, as well as playing with Dies - don't you just love it when you create for creating sake....you just start and see where it takes you...

For this card I used the fabulous A2 Modern Stationery Spellbinders® Nestabilities® Card Creator, for both the card base and the inked layer.  I have stamped the white layer using the Brush Strokes from the Spellbinders® Celebra’tions™ Line by Richard Garay.  This has been stamped using the  Imagine Crafts ‘featuring’ Tsukineko Radiant Neon Inks in Electric Purple, Electric Orange and Electric Blue.  I have added random paint splotches using paint I had on hand - there are no limits with this.  The grid patterns is from Viva Las Viva Stamps

 The butterfly is from my stash and has been 'splothed' in the same manner as the white layer; with an orange button and a gem added to the centre.  The sentiment is by RubberMoon and has been stamped using  Imagine Crafts ‘featuring’ Tsukineko Memento Ink in Espresso Truffle.   Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares and E-Z Runner have been used on this card.

  1. Hi Linda, beautiful card, love the techies you've shown. Where did you get the postage mark stamp? I'd love to have one with my birthday May, 1959!

  2. Okay, looked again...with my glasses on and some caffeine in my system and the stamp image isn't part of your card. Seriously, I'm contacting my eye doc today!
