I would like to take this opportunity to wish all my visitors a peaceful and wonder-filled Easter.
The inspiration for this card started with some wrapping paper that was around a small gift I received last year - I loved the butterfly paper with the silver highlights, so saved as much of it as I could.
As there was not enough for a full card background, I tried inking the (masked) card base with some silver pigment ink, but it was not really successful.
So I sprinkled silver ep onto it - too thick, grabbed a fan paint brush and lightly brushed over the ep, and then heated it to get this effect. Loved it!
This shot gives an idea of the silver on the paper
I trimmed the edge of the paper with a scalloped edge die from Paper Smooches, and layered that over a thin strip of silver ribbon, which gave a smooth transition onto the embossed area
I then silver embossed the sentiment onto this die cut that was in my 'promise box', already sponged with pink and sprayed with silver shimmer spray, added the wee butterfly die-cut from silver sparkle card and the card was finished.

(Favourite line, Ribbon, Diecut and pink - all elements I use frequently and love.
Great to see them as a combination)
Thank you for visiting my blog - may your day be blessed
