How are you all on this bright and cheerful Tuesday afternoon?? Yeah, I know, I'm a bit late again - sheeesh! Had to go buy some B'Day pressies for the wee one. It isn't her Birthday until 15th, but I like to know I have them and am not rushed or stressed - anything for an easy life! LOL
Right, my card today is my DT offering over at Tuesday Taggers, and our theme this week is 'Swirls and Curls' set by our very own Pat. I was at a loss here to start with, wanted to do something different that I hadn't done before, but no mojo!! So I decided to make a Mother's Day card. Then I had a flash of inspiration, after I had drawn the Peacock Butterfly image I posted about yesterday. I thought - This looks good just as a Black and White image - and I made the whole card just as a B&W one.
I found a yummy swirly frame on MyGrafico, so I have used that, but in reverse. The swirls are actually black on the original with a white background. I made it 'inverted' in my graphics programme, otherwise the centre panel would have been totally black.
I have used my Peacock Butterfly image, available for purchase in my blog shop, Delicious Doodles. I printed it out a few times, and in a smaller size too, then cut out just the wings and body and stuck the body down so the wings could be folded up. Love that effect, dimension without foam pads!!
I have also printed it as a tint behind the MUM. Don't know why, just looked good when I did it. Last thing was to add some yummy glitter. Ta-Da!
Turns out we have a sponsor for this week too, from Crafty Individuals, and they have donated a prize pack to our lucky winner. Don't forget to have a link to their store to be eligible to win!! Pop over to Tuesday Taggers then and have a nosey round my DT sisters' creations - boy, there are some scrummy pieces of art to see!!
Hope you don't mind ladies, but I'm entering this at Fab and Funky , as their theme is 'Black and White' this week. AND I am also entering at Raise The Bar, as they want '3 of anything'. Well, I have 3 Butterflies - if you count the tint, and also there are three layers - the cardstock, the first raised layer with the text, and the folded back wings. Hope this counts!!
Righty then, time for some lunch me thinks!!
