I’ve been in a rush today to get Keesh’s challenge done. Keesh always comes up with some beauties!!!! Here is the photo we had as inspiration.
I have stared at this photo several times over the last week and have really struggled with it. I did attempt something else but it just wasn’t working. So I came up with this. Now I was pleased how this one turned out considering my frustration, desperation, anquish!! But when I look at all the other cards that some very clever people have done mine is kind of boring. Oh Well!! It’s done now! I have a lot to learn!
Anyway, here is my card.
I have stamped the butterfly in Basic Black onto So Saffron DSP to create a shadow. Then stamped the butterfly on whisper white with Tempting Turquoise and then cut it out. I stamped the leaf stems in So saffron on whisper white and cut them out too. I actually stamped these for my other card attempt (but we won’t talk about that one!). I scalloped the edge of black card and mounted the DSP onto that and mounted it onto Tempting Turqoise cardstock. I adhered the butterfly just on the middle so the wings would raise up, and also adhered the leaf stems. I added a strip of black and created a bow with black cardstock. The greeting is stamped in Basic Black. It is a very simple card!!!!
I’m loving this new set “A Great Friend” that is coming out in the new Spring Mini starting on August 1. I think it is a must-have!!
