CYCI150 - Have Faith in Yourself!

We have a wonderful color combo for this week's CYCI Color Challenge by Kevin... Mint, Navy, Copper, and White! 

I inked up Unity's Floral Soul stamp directly with my Mint Macaron and Night of Navy markers and then I spritzed it with a bit of water and stamped right on a piece of white card stock. I made sure to not saturate the stamp too much since I was just using regular card stock. I cut that piece out using the little rectangle die in the WPlus9 Love Showers Layers die. I then cut out the tag shape in Mint Macaron card stock and stenciled some white lines using Echo Park's Festive Stripe Stencil. 

While the white ink dried, I stamped the butterfly and sentiment in VersaMark ink on vellum card stock and then heat embossed copper embossing powder. I ran the sentiment through my sticker maker and adhered that to the top of the flower background. I fussy cut the butterfly and gently bent it to give it some dimension on the card. I popped up the little background piece using stamping dimensionals and adhered it to the tag. All the tag needed now was a bit of ribbon so I used the pretty Mint Macaron dotted lace trim and tied it off with some copper cord. I added a few skinny strips of copper foil to my white card base and then adhered the tag to the card.

Here's a close up picture of the shimmer and shine from all the copper goodness!! I even added a bit of copper shimmer to the white sequins. Just a little spritz and I sprayed it with hairspray to set.
