Animal Magic card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Animal Magic". This month Tim Holz is the featured brand of the month over on the Simon Says Stamp Store Blog and we are all showcasing some of his fabulous products this week!

For this challenge I've channeled my inner grungy vibes. I wanted to make a masculine card but with butterflies. Therefor I used darker colors. I started with the background, using the Mixed Media # 6 dies to cut out the letters. Then place it back with Texture Paste letters with the Schoolhouse stencil. While that was drying I continued with some stamp work. The large butterfly from Perspective stamp set and some bugs from the Entomology stamp set. I cut out the bug with the coordinating die set.


When the background was dry, I applied a layer of Clear Gesso. And then I started applying color with Distress Ink. Distress Ink obviously doesn't adhere to Clear Gesso, so the color soon disolved when I started working with Infusions and Nuvo Shimmer Powder ... So I applied the Distress Inks again afterwards. That was a better idea ... :). I've colored the large butterfly with the same Distress Ink colors. I only used 2 other colors for the small butterfly.
