At last I get to jump on the compy! Blooming kids nicked it for games, but I managed to kick them off it until I make tea. Now I get a chance to post my latest card!
I have done this card with a few challenges in mind, the first one being over at Midnight Madness, where there is a very challenging sketch this week!
My theme is 'Butterflies and Lace', which is the challenge over at Digital Tuesday. For my Butterfly I have used my image 'Simple Butterfly' which I have stretched in photoshop, and printed onto some pale blue and white damask patterned paper.
I printed two images out, so that I could use the top layer to curl up the wings a bit. I have added some dimension dots to the wings too.
The colour scheme fits the challenge at Colour Create, which is 'Ivory, Duck-Egg Blue and one other from their photo - I chose the brown. There is an optional theme of 'shabby chic' too, I did try, but I'm not too sure if that worked or not. The next challenge this fits is at CRAFT which is 'mini-beasts', yeah, I copped out and used a butterfly, but it is a beastie, and it is small!!
Last over at Papertake Weekly the theme is 'something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue'. I did manage most of these, except the borrowed bit! My 'old' is the pearlescent brown cardstock. My 'new' is the lovely guipuir lace in the corner. My 'blue' is the backing and the damask paper.
I punched out a few leafy sprigs and used paper flowers for a change instead of the twirly bits on the sketch. I don't own any of those yummy pearly swirly sticker shape thingies that I have seen adorning some folks cards. Wouldn't know where to get them! Any suggestions folks? I have used a couple of MS border punches for the scalloped bit over the triangle on the sketch, and also on the strip to the left, to which I also added a few single sticky pearls.
OK, so now I have kiddo's hovering on me shoulder edging me off the seat - LOL. Need to go get them some more food - endless pits their stomachs!! See ya later peeps!!
