Hi Susan here...
The Crazy Challenge have started a new challenge today and the theme is 'Things with Wings', easy peasy....for full details of the challenge and some fabulous inspiration from the design team please call across to The Crazy Challenge Blog.
Now for my card, I used an older sketch from Get Sketchy, I fell in love with the swirly shape of the background, I think I will probably use this sketch again in the future. My backing papers are all from Nitwits, I distressed the swirly join and aged the edges with distressing inks from Tim Holtz. I mat and layered the papers onto a piece of kraft coloured card.
My ribbon, pearls and gems are all from our local market. The vintage brads are from my stash.
My beautiful sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs, just perfect for what I wanted, I inked the edges and layered it onto a piece of kraft coloured card.
My flowers are all handmade, made from a five petal punch, they have been coloured with distressing inks that I aged the backing paper edges with.
My vellum butterflies are handmade, I added wire antennae and pearls for the body. The edges of the wings have been inked with distressing inks.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my card and for leaving all your wonderful much appreciated comments, I hope you liked it.
