Good Morning Ladies,
Today's card was inspired by butterflies! Don't ask me why, it just came to me this afternoon while I was sorting out my ribbon draws!
I had a piece of card that I had cut with Sue's (mrs B Sue) Embroidered Striplet Die, I cut without the outside cutting edge 3 times into a piece of Coconut White Card, I then cut a slightly larger Matt of black card and covered all but a thin border of it with an adhesive sheet, I used Ebony Ice to cover the sticky sheet and give a nice sparkly background, boy that stuff makes a mess in your craft room, one of my twin daughters came in to my bedroom after her shower and said she thought she bugs all over her feet! Oops! Anyway back to the card, I mounted the die cut white sheet onto the sparkly
background with Pinflair Glue Gel for dimension! I then put foam tape onto the back and stuck it to
two Matt's of white and the black card base. For the focal elements I covered a piece of black card with Double sided adhesive sheet and cut a butterfly, I cut the base of butterfly out of plain back card, added Ebony Ice to the top layer and mounted the two together using a little black wire for tentacles.
(Have to make sure IPad doesn't auto correct that word)!
I used some black Pearl Swirls for the 'trail' of god butterfly.
In the opposite corner I tied a bow from black silky crush ribbon and mounted onto some black tulle arranged in a bow shape to mimic the butterfly, added some black pearl stick pins and a few extra black stones in corners. What do you all think?
Leave me your comments please it's the highlight of my day reading all of your messages.
Off crafting with Pat&Sue tomorrow, really looking forward to it but really anxious at the same time, it's been a good couple/three weeks since I have been out so will be a bit nervy! So looking forward to catching up and checking out Pat's new teal Calibur and Sue's new machine too.
Then back home to prepare Bella for Thursday, got to be starved from 9pm tonight, poor think she usually gets fed at 6 am, we will feed Milo after Bella has left for vets.
Anyway I must go, will hopefully catch up with you all tomorrow,
