Floral Flutter

Bloom where you are planted!

Stampendous is our sponsor February 3rd -6th over at Passionate Paper Creations and Friends by Rhea. Make sure to pop over and ( join if you have not) be on the lookout for specials from the Sponsor! They sent us each two stamps, Floral Flutter is todays stamp. I will have the second one for you tomorrow. They have lots of fun images, buzz on over and check them out. Now on with the show and tell….

So, when I got ready to make this card, I inked it up and (Insert sad face) found a defect. If you see the upper left hand corner, the wing details are missing. I decided to just color it all in like the rest of the butterfly and figure it out later.

Starting with the flowers, I selected 3 colors to compliment my blue/purple butterfly.

Deciding that my best plan would be to cover up the defect. This was the perfect sentiment, but my strip hardly covered the problem. I have these retired tag corner square dies from MFT that had one the right size, so I added the sentiment strip on top of it, using the tag as the cover.

I stamped my image in obsidian and colored it. Then I stamped over it in Versafine and heat embossed it with clear powder. It helped make the details of the stamp pop a bit, since it looked faded after I colored it.

What a great card! I have had to “fix” things on my cards before to hide a mistake….so much better than tossing something and starting over! There is always something we can do to mask any defect! Thanks for sharing!
