DCWV Stackaholic Challenge Card

Hello crafty friends,
Hope you are having an enjoyable day! Today I am sharing a card I recently created for the DCWV Monthly Stackaholic Challenge! I like most of you have some DCWV stacks and love to play along with them each month. Here is what is my card.

Here’s a look at my completed card. The finished size is 5 x 6.5 inches. I started with a black cardstock base. The patterned papers are from the DCWV Scripts and Music Notes Stack. The challenge is to follow along with the sketch provided.

Here is the sketch.

Here is a closer look at my butterflies. They are a stamp from a fun stampers journey set that I picked up on one of Richard Garay’s Deals of the Day. So I am guessing it is a discontinued stamp set with matching dies. I stamped them with some black ink and then used a water color  pencil to softly color some pink. I then used my Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Brush pen to soften the pink and add just a real soft touch of glitter. The picture doesn’t show the glitter too well.

I used some fun stampers journey sequins from the Bloom Time sequins.

I used my EK Success Daisy Punch punches to cut some flower shapes from the gorgeous vellum paper that came in the stack. I added some more sequins to the centers of the flowers.

I cut a strip of black licorice cardstock and then stamped a happy birthday sentiment in Whip Cream ink. The stamp is from the fsj Sentimental Prints stamp set. I used some black  Canson Photo Corners and some white cardstock under the Vellum. I added a bow with some ribbon I had in my stash. This is one of those cards I like to call “Unplugged”. In other words, I didn’t use any of my electronic die cutters to create this card.
