Warm greetings from a chilly Antipodes to all of you.
I guess most of you have known the frustration of "loosing your mojo", and there is never a worse time than when you start on a new Design team!!
But I have survived, and the other afternoon this card came together wonderfully - the second one that afternoon!
This was a card 'made to order' and the colours originated from there.
The scripture is from the Our Daily Bread Designs Scripture Collection 2 and was stamped in Versacolor violet ink.
The metallic butterflies are some I was given, and were adhered with white PVA glue, as were the small pink beads on the top of them. The stripe was paper pierced and then coloured with chalks, as I had no ribbon that 'fitted' the card.
The large motif stamp is one of a set called Simply Delightful, designed by Nina Brackett and marketed by The Crafts Meow. I coloured it with Stampin' Up watercolour pencils and blender pen, and metallic mauve and gold pens, then added the clear rhinestones, sponged the edge and layered it.
This is the finished article - yes an easel card. The base was stamped with the Layers of Color Happy Wishes stamp set, and the phrase "To A Special Aunt" was computer generated by me!!
To finish the base I added lace and a row of small, clear rhinestones.
