Our Creative Corner, has a blooming photo inspiration challenge, but use no flowers!!
Here is my entry :
This card is based on a sketch from 365 Cards, and the colours are from the OCC photo.
I'm trying out a new technique, which is masking and glimmer mist. This is the first time I'm using the mask (something new!), and it looks a bit gaudy, doesn't it? I overstamped it with a subtle text stamp, but it did not come out well in these photos. It's much more noticeable in reality.
I've then layered it with a doiley. The embossed chipboard fence forms the base of the card, which is simply finished with ribbon, a button and bow.
The focal image is a butterfly, which has been double embossed with holographic powder. It sits on an embossed shape (one of my earliest dies, and still a favourite ~ Ü ~) and chipboard vine. This, too, is finished with a button and bow. I love these butterflies, they are just so pretty!
Nearly everything have their edges inked with DIs. I don't think there are any projects done without this since I got my first DI ink pad! For this, it's a combo of tattered rose, fired brick and the perennial vintage photo.
