Hello friends! Today starts our new February challenge over at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies! Remember that this is an always ANYTHING GOES challenge, but you must include a critter somewhere on your project to enter!
Here’s what I’ve created for the challenge:
I have used this digital stamp set called Ribbons of Love.
For this card, I’ve used the uncolored images and placed the images together how I wanted them to appear in a Word doc and then printed it out. I printed out an extra butterfly so that I could cut it out and pop it up over the design for dimension. All of the butterflies were colored with Copics.
For the background of my card, I took some Lace and placed it over top of a piece of cardstock that I’ve covered with a Super Adhesive Sheet. I then sprinkled some Caspia Sea glitter and burnished it over the lace layer. (Sometimes I use the backing from the adhesive sheet to help burnish it in.) After I felt it was burnished in, I removed the lace layer and sprinkled on some Lemonade glitter over the rest which gave me the unique glittery lace background! As you can see, I’ve also taken a small strip of it to add to my design. I have layered that piece with a strip of black fishtail banner and tied a white ribbon bow to attach over it. The butterfly image panel was cut, layered with black cardstock and attached over the middle of the glittery background which as also layered with black cardstock and attached to an A2 sized white top folding card base.
Looking more closely at the card, you can better see the glittery background along with the coloring on the butterflies. The two butterflies at the top were brushed with some Glue and then I sprinkled some Diamond Dust glitter over top of their wings for a bit more sparkle. I glued the center of the yellow butterfly down and popped up the wings with my finger for a bit of dimension.
Thanks for stopping in… stay tuned in for my next special post!!
