I have been wanting to make a thank you card for a store in Salem, Oregon where I took classes this summer. I was lucky enough to take classes from Dina Wakely. The store was wonderful and the staff was fabulous also. I will go back when I can afford the airline ticket and classes. I am lucky I have a cousin who likes me to visit.
The image I used on this card is a napkin from the store. For a small fee they provided lunch every day and this made it so convenient. I did use a clean napkin. I brought one home especially for this project. I hope they recognize it.
The image was pop dotted onto the card base. The sentiment was stamped and added to card front. The napkin had 4 images on it so I had extra butterflies to work with. I adhered two of them to card stock and then I fussy cut them out. I added some gold gesso on each layer before I glued the layers together in the middle. The butterflies are very dimensional as you can see in the picture below.
Remember that card base that fell into the gesso. Well I wiped a bunch of it off and then I grabbed a stencil and stenciled a design on the back on the card. I think it was a good solution to my accident.
I also stenciled the same design on the front of my envelope.
Please come and join us at Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media Challenge and I hope you have no accidents like I did.
