Window of Flowers

It is a new challenge over at the Butterfly Blog.
#103 Spin The butterfly Wheel with the Letter W. 


I have two cards as  inspiration to show you.

First card uses the colour Wisteria in the flowers and the frame and I have created a Window  with acetate over the image.

The digi image is by SLS lines called 'Dahlias 1' which I have painted using my Marvy LePlume II watercolour pens. The window was created by die cutting 6 frames using my Crafts-Too Rectangle dies Stitch hole and layering up. I inserted a sheet of acetate behind the first die cut and placed the trimmed down image behind the last frame and then finally  adhered to the card front. Wooden butterfly and the silver sticker sentiment were from my stash.

Second card uses the colour Wine and Washi Tape along with a butterfly of course.

I find making this type of card is easier when not actually required at the time  as you are then emotionally detached.  I have used a punch to die cut two butterflies from wine coloured felt and then layered up with a gold pearl. The gold sticker sentiment and the gold sticker bars were from my stash. The Washi Tape is simply adhered to a strip of the same backing card as the base card and then raised on 3D pads. The pattern on the tape is delicate butterflies along with Chaffinch and  Bluetits which I thought looked serene and peachful.

The challenge runs for 2 weeks and ends on July 17th so hope you will come and play. I will show some more cards next week with the other options on the wheel.

Hi Mrs A your cards are gorgeous. I have loads of Washi Tape that I just don't use. Have a great day. Take care. Hugs Jackie

Two lovely inspirations, and like especially the linear and elegant feel of the second one. I have never used punches with felt, I will have a try. Love your use of washi tape!

Two fantastic cards Valery Anne. I know what you mean about making those cards when they are not needed, it's so much easier.
