Tall and Retired
I love tall and long cards. I don't make them very often, but this challenge got me going so that I will make more! This card fits is a business sized envelope. With the postage rates changing, and being a little wacky, I may make more of this size -- I know how much it should cost to send!
This is my submission for Monday's SCS Technique challenge -- making a long card with retiring stamps~
I chose A Measure of a Life -- one of this year's hostess sets. I stamped in Basic Black on watercolor paper and then used a combination of colors to paint the butterfly (Marigold Morning, More Mustard, Brilliant Blue, Bravo Burgundy). I wanted a Tapestry look. I distressed the edges of each of the papers (you really can't see this in the photo). The butterfly piece is mounted on Elegant Eggplant. The end of the ribbon was heated for texture and to keep it from fraying. The 'thank you' sentiment was stamped in Basic Black on a piece I watercolored as well. This is so much prettier IRL ~ but what can I do? :) Have a great day!
