Wow - two posts in one day don't happen for me too often! If you are looking for the Simply Create Too post, please scroll down.
Well three months really whizzed by and it is time for my last post as Guest Designer over at the Fairy tale challenge blog. I'd like to thank Bianca for having me and making everything so easy. It has been great fun, and that continues this week because we have been asked to create a card using feathers or wings. The challenge is being sponsored by
and there is a great prize for the winner. I chose to use a digi stamp from the Everyday Miracles set and came up with this card.
I enlarged the one of the butterflies in the set and fussy cut it before colouring it with and alcohol pens. Once the ink was dry, I painted it with 2 coats of Wink of Stella glitter and shaped the butterfly round a pencil to give it some movement. I used Papertrey Ink Lemon Tart card as a base and die cut one of their Boutique Border Birthday dies and stamped it with the coordinating stamp in orange zest ink, before stamping a sentiment from the Butterfly Dreams stamp set. I put a panel of the lemon card through my Ebosser with the Canvas and Linen Impression plate and added a strip of card which I stamped with the stripey stamp from Candy Canes. I really like to have a couple of cards in my stash that can be made into a card for several occasions. This one would be ideal for graduation, other examination success, and even new job, with the addition of another sentiment inside.
Why not pop over to the Fairy tale challenge blog to see all the inspiration the Design Team have for you, and join in with the challenge.
Thanks again Bianca, and thanks to you for stopping by. Have a great weekend.
