This card is a little out of my colour comfort zone so it was a challenge for me. Inkspirational
are looking for pastel pink, blue and yellow in their card this week so I had to try it and this is the result.
I began with a white piece of card and stamped a swirl on it with Perfect Medium and then clear embossed it. This was to keep my swirls white when I coloured the background with Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass, Scattered Straw and Spun Sugar. I have also stamped the swirl around the edge of my card blank using Tumbled Glass.
The background is matted with a small edge of gold to match the butterflies. As I had used embossing already I didn't want to emboss again and risk overheating my swirls so I used peel offs. If you put three identical butterflies together by folding them in half and matching up the wings you can get the centre one to stand out while using the other base halves to attach to the card. They will flatten in the post but they do spring up a little again once out of the envelope.
I LOVE this, the background is stunning. The flourish in clear embossing looks great and I love how you followed this onto the base card. Thanks for joining us at InkspirationalReplyDelete
