Hi Susan here....
We have started a new challenge over at Lexi's Creations today and the theme is
'Black and White plus 1 more colour'
Please try this challenge, it's lots of fun to do....the effects can be quite spectacular, if you are unsure what to do check out the inspiration from the design team over at Lexi's Creations Challenge Blog. You will get all the information you need about the challenge and our sponsor.
Now onto my card....
I have chosen PINK as my other colour to add to the black and white, at the moment I am so into butterflies, I couldn't resist using the DIY butterfly from Fairy Dust Crafts. I used promarkers to colour and shade then I added stickles all over the wings before attaching pearls for the bodies. The pearls as always come from our local market.
My backing papers are from a 6x6 paper pad from Kaiser Craft called 'Black and white timeless collection'. I used black card to back the stripes to help them to stand out. They are such beautiful papers and all have the look of being distressed both with the printing and the edges. The main backing card is from Paper Mill Direct.
The ticket and sentiment are from Fairy Dust Crafts, I blanked out the centre of the ticket and then fitted the sentiment 'The Gift' to it. I coloured around the edge with promarkers and then added stickles.
Thank you for taking the time to look and for your wonderful comments
Love and hugs
