I will be making 10; one to keep and 9 to swap. They're not due until May, but I have been playing around with design ideas. This is the one I'm going to keep for myself. The ones I do for the swap will be similar, but the words and color palettes will change.....just to keep it interesting for me!
I cut the pennant from heavy cardboard and covered it with a music sheet. Added some distress inks, stamped it with several background stamps, and then covered the whole thing with versamark and clear embossing powder. Then I used a scratch tool to rough up the surface and swiped brown stazon all over. It stayed inside the scratch marks and wiped off easily from the rest.
The letters are grungeboard, sprayed with a mist made of rusty hinge reinker, water and sunflower sparkle perfect pearls. Then they were edged with vintage photo distress ink.
The butterfly is grungepaper, cut with a sizzix die. The finish is Kat's wonderful "drunken scotch" technique, but instead of using alcohol ink colors to simulate rust (Kat uses ginger and rust), I used lettuce, stream, and juniper. Pretty cool, huh?
Under the butterfly and the letter L you can see a bit of metal from Ten Seconds Studio, which I double embossed and inked with brown stazon and cut with a sizzix die.
OK, 1 down, 9 to go!
