Warmest greetings to all who call by - I have enjoyed another Sunday afternoon in the studio and have something to show for it, which I will share here.
I have also designed my Christmas Card for this year. I have had the idea for that simmering for a while, and I want to get them started as I have borrowed a Cuttlebug folder to use on them.
Todays card used the sketch challenge at Midnight Madness as a starting point, and I also wanted to incorporate some acetate embossed in the cuttle bug for another challenge.
I found this sketch quite a challenge - as it is supposed to be - but I got there - eventually, with my own interpretation.
The two ribbons are silver chiffon, - the narrow one has some silver threads in the edges.
I embossed the butterflies from the Layers of Color
Flutterescent Set in silver, and added a wee bit of colour with some twinkling H2O's, which also gave an added sheen to them.
The 'cut out' butterfly also had some clear rhinestones added to give some dimension to the body.
The acetate is some that was painted with Lumiere paints some time ago, it was run through the Cuttlebug Birdsong folder to give some added dimension, it was backed with some kraft coloured card before being mounted on the card as part of the sketch.
The card was finished with the addition of some silver edged lace, half a dozen moulded flowers I was given recently, to which clear rhinestones were added to the centres, and further rhinestones were added to the left side of the ribbon to give the card some balance.
Thanks for calling by, and I do appreciate any comments you leave - they make my day.
May your day be blessed.
