Hey there!!! It's been a long time since I've posted. I've been busy packing and getting ready to hit the road. I've missed visiting your creative blogs. Now that I'm almost finished I can get a bit crafty again :)
Speaking of which when I saw Embellish Magazine's color challenge I knew I had to create something. The colors are so inviting and the images they provided make it all the better.
Wouldn't you agree?!?
Now for my take on the challenge. When I distressed the edges with the black it gave my card sort of gloomy look. I wasn't too thrilled with it at first but I did, in a weird way, liked it. So instead of creating a wedding themed or just because card I made a "feel better" one. Which seemed to go well with the overall distribution of color :)
The green butterfly seemed like the perfect element for a get well card. Green besides luck is associated with hope :)
1. Cut and score an A2 card. Distress and create faux stitching. Set aside.
2. Stamp a background on a paper doily (I used woodgrain). Stamp sentiment and distress edges. Adhere to card.
3. Stamp butterfly onto green cardstock and cut out. Adhere onto doily.
4. Finish off by adding pearls.
There ya have it. Hope you give this challenge a try. Stay tuned for more creations and Lawn Fawn sneak peaks :)
