Before I start ironing I made a card for the Allsorts challenge, this week it was a photo that is to be used as the inspiration for the card.
I want this bracelet! I came up with this card. I've got so much purple and lilac cardstock its not funny. I'm not even a purple fan! In an attempt to use some I've based the colours around purple and taken the butterflies as inspiration. I also placed them around a central greeting. I've used four different techniques for the squares, a bit like making twinchies and mounting them on the card. This layout is one favoured by Julie Hickey and a bit if a staple for me in both cardmaking and scrapbooking.
I've used four different techniques for the squares, the first is punches
then I used masking and spraying with glimmer mists
I dug out my Marvy LePlume pens, I haven't used these in a lifetime since I discovered Copics pens for colouring. I coloured the stamp in two colours before stamping the butterfly.
and finally when I was digging out the pens I spied my chalks, OMG what a lot of stuff I don't use anymore. I have no idea why because chalking used to be one of my favourite techniques. Shame on me!
OK no more excuses the ironing has to be done!
