CAS Collage


Happy Saturday.
Time to get inky and play with some stamps.

I wanted to create a collage style card using this lovely butterfly stamp from Penny Black and the Mixed Media stamp set from STAMPlorations.
I began by stamping my butterfly first and used my Zigs to colour it in.  I stamped the butterfly again onto a thin piece of white paper, cut it out and used it for a mask.
Next, I just played with the Mixed Media stamps, stamping over and around the masked butterfly image then also used some drywall tape, added some stenciling to help pull it all together. 
I removed the mask and covered the butterfly in Glossy Accents to help it pop and make it the focal point of my card.  When it was dry, it actually looked like a sticker.

I chose a long sentiment stamp from Daisy Bucket to help balance out the bottom of the card.



Have a great weekend and thanks so very much for the visit.
