My goodness! Two blog posts in one day. Whatever next! This card was inspired by the challenge over at the Friday Mashup where you can create an image that combines a silhouette with a colour- filled background.
I made the background by applying layers of Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz and Sahara Sand inks to an acrylic block that I spritzed with water. A piece of card was placed on top to create a nice inky impression, then I added sea salt and dried it with a heat gun. I did the same for the purple butterfly, but that was made with a Cosmic Shimmer ink spray. I added some stencilling and cut a butterfly silhouette from black glimmer paper using SU's Bold Butterflies die. The purple butterfly was embossed with a Sheena Douglass embossing folder and I added some gold by rubbing a Gelato over the raised detailing.
I'd also like to enter my snippety card into Pixie's Snippets Playground.
Have a great weekend! April x
