Oops. Should have posted this on Wednesday but a lot has been going on with The Docs Aunt and something had to give. There is a lot of organisation needed to be done even before she can come out of hospital.
Time for a new challenge over on the Butterfly Blog.
#101 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with the Letter M.
Here are my first two inspiration cards to wet your appetite.
Card One using Butterflies/Moss Green and Musical. I decided to make an easel card. The stamp set is by Imagination Crafts from their Decoupage Stamp Range. I have coloured using my Graph 'it and Promarkers. Decorated with Tonic Nuvo Vanilla Delight Pure sheen sequins. I made the base card from white card stock and layered the image up with Moss Green and Peach card stock along with the row of butterflies which are the retaining wall for the card to stand up.
I have chosen to use a stamp with musical notes on it but of course you could use sheet music for instance. musical die cuts or even musical instruments!!
Card Two using Butterflies/Medium Blue/Metallic. This stamp set was a freebie with Paper Crafts Essentials and came with a matching embossing folder. The stamps are basically a build your own flower and have several flowers/leaves in different sizes and 5 different sentiments. Here I have just used the largest daisy like flower and two different size leaves. I have kept the design fairly simple as I wanted the flowers to take centre stage. I used my graph'it pen on the flowers and promarker for the leaves. I edged everything including the sentiment with a silver gel pen which looks nice IRL. The base card is made using silver pearlescent cardstock. Metallic butterflies were from my stash. The corner chomper is by Woodware.
I chose to depict the metallic element using the silver gel pen, silver pearlescent cardstock and the metallic butterflies. Other metallic elements that spring to mind are metallic thread, silver metal charms, metal corners.
