Girl With Roses Easel Card (Fairy Tale Challenge #116)

Happy Friday everyone :-D

It´s time for a new challenge at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog.

The theme for this fortnight is #116, Ein selten oder noch nie benutzter Stempel / Rarely or Never Used Stamp.

This time our lucky winner will win this gorgeous Vintage paper pack. 
For this challenge I made this Girl With Roses Easel Card, a Confirmation card for my niece Vanesa.

I used my new gorgeous Mo's Manning digital stamp 'Alisa with Roses'. I printed the image on a white paper (160 grams), colored it with colored pencils and  blended colors with baby oil. I cut out an oval shape around the image, leaving part of a dress outside the shape (idea for this is from here).

Then I made an easel card base. I used bracket shape templates I made using Joy! crafts Die-Cut Designpaper 'Elegance'. I don't have die-cut machine, so I make my own cardstock templates.

I decorated card base with Joy! crafts Die-Cut Designpaper 'Elegance'.

I added acrylic paste on the card, smearing it through gauze. After paste was dry, I glued image and note panel on the card and decorated it with butterflies and roses. 

I distressed paper roses with Tim Holtz's Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy
White butterflies are made using butterfly stencil, structure paste and palette knife. I made the stencil from cardstock scraps and butterfly paper puncher. 

Brown butterflies are made using digital butterfly template. I printed them in various sizes, fussy cut them, distressed with Tim Holtz's Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy, glued on the card and coated with découpage glue and varnish. 

Card dimensions are 152 mm x 127 mm (6" x 5").
