Well I'm so far behind today that'll it'll be tomorrow before I get this posted if I don't get a move on!! It's time for Challenge #48 at CACB and this time our theme is: It'll be all white on the night! The only colour should be on the main image. I've become rather fond of WOW backgrounds so really enjoyed making this. My topper has been created using the textured gold frame #3 (which isn't as dark as this in real life) that I've digitally paper pieced a piece of mottled stone paper (from collection 5) into. The butterfly is brand new and will be going into the shop today with some other new digis. The butterfly sheet has 3 of the same image on it - there is the usual black and white line art, a gold embossed outline effect and a sliver embosses outline effect. I've used the gold embossed outline here and digitally paper pieced it with various papers. All are from Crafty Ann's. I've sussed out another way of digital paper piecing that is easier and quicker so I'll do a tut on that as soon as I get the chance. I cut the butterfly out and shaped the wings before adding it with pinflair gel glue so it has lovely dimension to it. I've used a pearlescent white paper to create the backing for my topper. I used a corner punch without the guides to create the two edges and put the whole thing through a papermania embossing folder and added the pearls after I'd attached it to the card. The only other embellishments are the lovely Marianne Designs flourishes top and bottom.
I'm also entering my card into these challenges:
- Card Patterns - the lovely sketch
- Ooh-la-la - No backing papers
- PTW - Dies to die for
- The Paper Shelter - Die cuts and punches
- Heart Song - Shabby Chic and/or Pearls (I've just gone for the pearls)
- Sew Many Cards - Edge punches (I hope using the corner punch as an edge punch counts)
Thank you for dropping by today, and I hope you'll get the chance to come along and WOW us this fortnight.
