I have been away again - this time with two friends having a 'girls weekend' - we made it a four day weekend and had a wonderful time in a small seaside town just a couple of hours away.
This card was made when I was in a bit of a slump, and needed to fill an order - I was inspired by the butterfly image on some Tim Holtz tissue paper that I have
hoarded treasured for years...
I trimmed it so the butterfly was in a corner, and then coloured the butterfly - sorry, I can't remember what I used to colour it with - and mounted the tissue on some thin white card for stability.
I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment using platinum ep. onto the pink card I used for the base, trimming it into a banner, and mounted it over the background tissue paper, giving it a narrow border of silver glitter paper either side.
To add some more interest I wrapped the tissue panel with some narrow silver ribbon, and put a bow where the ribbon crossed, lining it up to be at the base of the sentiment panel
the inside was finished with some matching washi tape.
