The background was stamped with embossing ink and heat embossed with green embossing powder. I’ve coloured it in with watercolour and matted it onto purple card.
I thought it would look good with a butterfly on it so onto a piece of lilac card I stamped an indigoblu butterfly with flitter glue and used gilding flakes to add a little luxury and shine. ( Flitter glue is a sticky glue that stays tacky till it is covered with something e.g. gilding flakes or glitter.)
I have added a strip of purple ribbon with double sided tape across the bottom and die-cut a sentiment from gold card. This is exciting because it’s the first time out for my new Christmas dies. I think I’m going to get a lot of use out of these.
The purple and green are a nice colour combination, I really like it. I’ll have to try to remember to use it again.
I gave the card to her this weekend and she liked it so I’m calling that a success.
Thanks for stopping by today. Till next time, have fun x
