Moments - Every End is a New Beginning

Hello and Happy Tuesday!!  It's Wanda here today sharing a card using a new cutting die, Moments, a not so old stamp, Crackle Background, and some older stamps, the butterflies from Butterflies/Dragonflies Set and Every End is a New Beginning.  I even had my camera close by and did some step out pictures for you!!

I started with a piece of Mixed Media Cardstock (Ranger) that I had laying nearby, left after cutting some off for another project.  At this point I wasn't sure how large of a piece I would actually need for my card.  I stamped the crackle background repeatedly over the piece stamping about 3 times between inkings.

After drying the ink I used a mini brayer to add paint rolling in short bursts both horizontally and vertically allowing colors to overlap.  I dried this with the heat tool. 

Next I used white paint through a stencil (Andy Skinner). 

At first I was going to stamp the quote directly on the background but then decided some layering would be nice.  I grabbed another scrap of Mixed Media Cardstock, sprayed it with Dylusions Ink Spray, blotted up the excess with a paper towel, dried it, layed the stencil over it, sprayed water, removed the stencil, blotted the water and then dried the piece.  I chose a spot to stamp the quote. Stamped the quote with Embossing Ink, embossed it with black powder, and tore it out.

After determining what I was doing and getting a rough idea of placement, I trimmed the background paper to 5" x 6" and distressed the edges.  I stamped the small butterfly as shown.

I stamped the large butterfly on the background with embossing ink, embossed with Sticky Powder, and then used Gold Foil on it.  

The quote was layered to black cardstock cut with deckle scissors.  Moments was die cut from black cardstock.  Finished size of the card is 6 3/8" x 5 3/8". 

I hope you've enjoyed today's card!!  Thanks for following along!!

Hugs, Wanda
