Well…ok…are you ready for the FINAL Control Freaks swap I did? As I mentioned, the other two were the ones I started with, but just couldn’t get the look I wanted. Here is what I ended up making. Isn’t it funny how just playing with the set, you can turn out a final product so different than the original direction you were going?
This card uses two of the new in-colors, Dusty Durango and Soft Suede. I loved those two matched with Blush Blossom from the Soft Subtles color family! What do you think?
I started with a base card of Blush Blossom and added a layer of Dusty Durango. Then I took a 3-3/4 square of Soft Suede cardstock and stamped the Asian grass from Asian Artistry Level 2 stamp set in the bottom right corner with Chocolate Chip Craft Ink, let it dry, then ran it thru my Big Shot with the Texturz Kit #4 plate. I lightly ran my Soft Suede ink pad across some of the highlights of the texture. I mounted the Soft Suede cardstock to the Dusty Durango layer and wrapped Soft Suede Polka Dot Ribbon around to the back to hide the seam.
I used the Butterflies die and Blush Blossom cardstock to make the small butterfly. Then I stamped on it with the Flower stamp in Asian Artistry and Dusty Durango ink. I added two gold mini brads for the body and popped it up on the card with dimensionals.
I stamped the greeting in that Asian Artistry hostess set with Dusty Durango ink on Whisper White and punched with the Wide Oval. I layered that on the smallest oval cut from Chocolate Chip cardstock and the Ovals Die in my Big Shot.
I was really happy with my final Control Freaks swap! Hope you like it, too!
