I was sorting out percolated and cut butterflies and flowers into a semblance of order and saw this flower which I had stamped and white embossed on very pale orange vellum. It is three separate sizes and I think its a Hero Art flower. I joined each layer with a little glue and added an orange gem.
Its all spotty dotty so perfect for the Less is More Challenge which I think I still have time to join. I had finished the card and was going to photograph and found my camera had a flat battery so had to wait till it charged enough.
Laid the flower originally on a white card base but felt it looked a bit wishy washy so added a layer of bright orange vellum (love this coloured vellum...will have to find more as it is disappearing fast).
Okay so cut the vellum very slightly longer than the card front, put a fold in at the top and attached over the back with a strip of double sided tape.
Being over the back there is no tape visible. Glued the flower on then stamped with Stazon ink 'you are' so it wouldn't smear and then added a new to me die cut 'incredible'. Finished off with the small orange gems.
Ready for someone incredible.
Okay thank you so much for coming to have a look and I hope you come again soon.
Just decided to do a quick EDIT here as Darnell is having a challenge called
and I couldn't resist entering with this card
I was so proud of this card and didnt notice anything was wrong till I was actually adding it to my blog. My husband and kids did their usual 'wow' 'wonderful' etc and no one noticed.
Then I put the two cards together:
I love watercolouring and am rather fussy as I go. Not a relaxed and let it splot here or there, more section by section. Anyway when the two were together suddenly I could see my purple butterfly at the top had one big joined wing, no gap and then further down third butterfly I had done exactly the same thing. Of course it still looks okay and I will use it but it was just one of those moments where you look and think 'whats wrong here??' and it finally dawns. So nothing better for this challenge I reckon.
So here we go
Now its only open for 24 hrs so if you want to join in you need to pull your finger out and do it. If you don't want to join in then just Hop on over and check out the other cards.
Again thanks for visiting.
