Take 3 - Week of August 8 - take 3

Okay, well today is the last day of this Take 3 challenge with the take 3 card.  And I've got to say, I love the end result of this card!!! 

The card started out with sponging on the bright colors.  Then I added the text by inking up the stamp and then randomly taking some of the ink off with a rag and then using uneven pressure when acutally stamping.  I loved how it turned out.  Then, I added some grungy dots using gesso and some bubble wrap.  After the background was finished, I added my Maya Road butterflies and sentiment.  Those black butterflies stand out so much on that bright and colorful background!! 

Well, that is it for another Take 3 challenge.  I hope you have enjoyed this week's set of cards.

Donelda, this rocks! I am loving all the fun techniques you used here...you are so darn clever!

I must have missed the "Follow" section in your sidebar before; I saw it a few days ago and signed up. I like to "follow" blogs because the new posts show up on my reading list. Otherwise I forget to go hunt for them.... KWIM? Anyway, I love your blog!

You do the most amazing things to paper!
So, I checked my mail yesterday and saw the most amazing parcel from you and my daughter and I have the nicest evening. We sorted out scraps and decided who would take what and then she and I created some cards. With all the amazing weather we have had, I have not stamped much at all.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Ooh, gesso on bubble wrap... I could do that! And I think I will, because you used it to great effect here. The sponged background is so vibrant!
