Colour Create #11 and Friday Sketchers # 47...Time Flutters by!!!

I am having fun with all this extra crafting time this long weekend!!! Really I should do some cleaning and all but making cards is sooo much more fun!

I was so inspired by my blogging bud Tab's colour combo for Colour Create Challenge and all the beautiful cards by the DT that I couldn't resist making a card and playing along! I also used this week's FS sketch #47 for this card too!!! It is a really nice sketch and everything just fell into place...loved it!!!

When I saw the colour combo I went digging in my stash for this button embossed paper that I have had forever...I mean it is probably 7 or 8 years old. Now that is some old stash!!! It is really pretty paper but I just never knew what to do with it until today! I did a lot of distressing and inking on this card and I stamped the stitching with my Kelly Panacci Stitches acrylic stamps with Vintage Photo Distress ink!
I crackled painted this Technique Tuesday FUNdamentals chipboard butterfly with Tim Holtz Picket Fence white Crackle Paint and then distressed it with Antique Linen, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress inks. Then I used Metallic Rub-on and Shimmerized it! It was hard to get a good photo of it...it actually looks good IRL! There are lots of fine little cracks in it....so happy with it!!!
Thanks for stopping by I think I am going to go tidy and do up so loads of clothes...I have been totally consumed with stamping and cardmaking this weekend that I really should do something a little more productive, smile!!
