Savvy Creations with Cassandra / Créations avisées avec Cassandra

Hello Magenta Friends! Cassandra here today sharing another index card creation. Earlier this month I shared an ICAD and why at times I like creating with index cards. You can see and read about it here.

For this one, I started with the leftover Metallic Mint gelato on my craft mat from the splatters on my last ICAD and smooshed and swiped the index card into the colour. Once I picked up all the leftover colour on the mat, I left it to dry as I turned to making the flowers. I heat emboss stamped the Azalea flowers with black emboss powder on a coffee filter and then watercoloured it with Mango Tango Nuance powder. While it was drying I brushed on clear matte gel medium on the index card base to seal the gelato background as I was going to stamp on top of it. While it was drying, I fussy cut the now dry coffee filter flowers and the butterflies from older Magenta patterned paper. Then, I outlined the butterflies with a black pen.  Next, I used Hickory Smoke grey Archival ink to stamp the script onto the background and used Black Soot Archival ink to stamp the Life is Beautiful sentiment. Then, I lightly splattered the base with black acrylic paint. Once dry, I arranged and adhered the flowers and butterflies to finish it off.

As to whether this one will become a card or an art journal page... I am thinking journal page as it will complement the last one making for a pleasing two page spread.

Happy creating!
