Spring Flowers.

It's the 2nd week  for the current  Butterfly Challenge  and here are my last two cards showing you some more inspiration. 
First  card is showcasing the colour Navy and No Stamping as this is a Digi image and not a stamp.
The digi is by Delicious Doodles and called " Spring Corner". Coloured using my Marvy LePlume II watercolour pens. I have used Navy card stock to make a tent style card base. The corners have been rounded using a Fiskars Decorative Corner punch. The sentiment is a tonic die which I had previously cut from glitter card and had in my stash not used. It was a brighter pink but I used a Tonic Nuvo Glitter Marker pen 'Raspberry Tart' which I thought was the same colour on the wooden button but it clashed so I went over the sentiment with the glitter pen. Then I made a woopsy as the glitter on top of the glitter took a long time to dry and as I glued it down on the card it smeared over the edges and made a right mess.
I quickly managed to lift it from card and left it to dry completely before sticking to matching white card trimmed with my Xcut corner chomper and just covering the mark left underneath. Phew! I found a small pink ready made bow in my ribbon stash to complete the card.


Last card is using all the 7 elements on the wheel.


1.    Butterfly. (Punched from  snippet of cardstock).
2.    No Stamping . (Digi image is by Little claire Designs 'Camillia).
3.    Not Square.( Using a 4" x 6 "  Five Panel Fold card).
4.    Numbers. ( Tonic 'Birthday Numbers Die cut).
5.    Naples  Yellow. ( Promarker used for flower).
6.    Napier Green.  (Promarker used for the leaves).
7.    Navy. (Cardstock used for punched butterfly).

Nearly came unstuck here as I was convinced that I had an embossing folder with numbers on. Found one with music notes and one with words but not the one I wanted so I had to improvise by spending a whole evening gluing individually die cut numbers randomly onto the panels on the sides of the card to mimic an embossing folder!! 

 Flower panel was die cut using my Xcut 'Rectangle Parenthesis' and a gold sticker sentiment added.
To finish the card off I made a belly band closure from the cream cardstock and matching yellow ribbon.

Challenge runs till Tuesday 13th and I do hope you will come and play along .

I'm impressed by all your adventures for these two cards, Mrs A.! I have never thought that the sentiment layer on the first one was a fixing of a smear, and absolutely I'm stunned by all the patience you have had gluing all those numbers in the second card to simulate an embossing!!!! It looks really amazing!! :)
Great inspirations!

Brilliant cards, Mrs A. Good rescue on the first card, it looks so pretty. As for your second card....you must have the patience of saint to stick on all those numbers! I actually thought it was an embossing folder, until I read your post. xx

These are both so beautiful, Mrs A! I especially love the daffodils with the dry embossing! By the way, you're right--my color wheel card does look like a CD!

These look great. My fave is the last one as it has your signature fancy fold. You always impress me with either fancy folds or fancy designs that incorporate great things like acetate etc!

Wonderful cards, Mrs A.

PS I am colouring up the rose stamp...you know the one I mean. It is sure fun to colour!

Sandra H said...
