Craft Stamper February Issue - Designer's Palette Inspiration

This card was inspired from an article in this February's Craft Stamper, I did not have the necessary colours suggested so I did my own colour interpretations using the following distress inks from Tim Holz:-

Spun Sugar (for the bottom line of the card)

Frayed Burlap (for the top line of the card and second stamped using Judikins vine stamp on the bottom line)

Barn Door (for the sentiment, heart and butterflies)

The borders were drawn in with a ruler and the Red Gold Metallic Promarker. 

The central panel used the stamp of a heart that came free with the magazine which was stamped in Barn Door and filled in using a watercolour brush filled with gold cosmic shimmer to add irridescents. 

I then stamped the butterflies and dragon fly using two layers of ink in Barn Door and Freyed Burlap, before the ink dried I then used a damp paint brush to fill in areas of the butterflies and dragon fly to accentuate them. 

To complete this card I then stamped the sentiment which came from a Crafters Companion Popcorn Stamp Set in Barn Door and adhered three pink pearls to the brown line and three brown pearls to the pink line for definition and texture.
