I would like to send a huge thank you to everyone over at Dies R Us Challenge for selecting my card in their Top 3!!! I am thrilled!! Be sure to check out their challenges!
Hello and welcome
We’re back with the new challenge over at Happy Little Stampers – Anything Goes with Dies- June . As always, anything goes in this challenge. So, I hope you’ll find time in your busy life to join in the fun this month!
I was asked to make an Engagement card, so I decided to use one of my favourite dies. Memory Box – Butterfly Hearts.
I started by making the colour band down the side of the front panel using Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powder – Midnight Blue. After sprinkling a little powder along the side of the panel, I sprayed with water and tipped it to allow it to drip across slightly. I then used a brush to smooth out the colour and ensure a full cover of colour, but left the unever edges so it still had the fluid look.
I love the way playing with these powders turn out. You can never truly predict how it will look when its dry. A favourite thing to use!
Another smaller panel was made as well.
Once the panels were dry, the front panel was die cut with the Memory Box die ensuring the edge starts in the blue section. A piece of silver card was added behind the butterflies.
On the second panel, the die is cut again along with a run of small butterflies from Memory Box – Butterfly Delights and the Congratulations sentiment.
Now came the fun part! 🙂
Each butterfly from the second panel was removed and glued on top of the butterflies on the front panel. Each butterfly had its wings folded up so some of the silver would show though.
Some of the smaller butterflies were added to the panel to look as though they are flying up to form the butterfly. Some were a little lighter from the edges of the colured panel.
A small line of silver Gelly Roll was added for the body of each butterfly.
The sentiment was layered up with 4 layers of white card before being added to the card front.
It really came together fairly quickly and I was thrilled with the way it turned out. Love all the shimmer and shime!!
Time to head over to our blog to check out the great work by the rest of the Design Team!
I look forward to seeing what you create this month!
