This was an idea that was chugging away in my brain and I thought I might just be able to squeeze into a Challenge I had seen that is ending soon so thought I would give it a go.
First I cut the die cut butterfly out of the card front.
Then I looked through the bits and pieces I have coloured, painted, blended etc and saw the piece that is from a background stamp made by Hero Art. I love the stamp and have embossed cardstock and watercolour cardstock in gold, silver, clear, white, sparkle all with this pattern
But most of what I do just sits waiting for me to decide how to use it. Well I found one way. I had a gold embossed and it has colours blended in pinks using Distress Inks. I die cut another butterfly.
I cut a small piece of card stock to put behind the original butterfly, laid the patterned butterfly inside the die cut and held in place with temporary tape.
Then I put wee little dots of glue inside each space. Picked up each piece and placed inside, bit like making a puzzle but easier. I then die cut the body from gold vellum. Once they were all in place, I lifted the butterfly out line so it sat slightly raised.
Now I can't decide which I like more, all pressed flat or slightly raised. Any thoughts ??
Decided to keep this very simple with the sentiment stamped in Charcoal.
I would like to enter this card in:
I think that makes three entered there
Sorry if you get this twice. Realised I had picked Less is More and forgot my colours didn't quite match Berry shade so had to delete.
no was tape but there is a butterfly
Enjoy your visit and see you again soon I hope.
