Flutterby


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
