Good evening Followers, Friends and Visitors,
I do hope you enjoyed your Christmas celebrations with your family and friends. We had a very enjoyable Christmas Day with our family. The turkey has all but gone now, maybe curried turkey tomorrow lol! Before I begin, I would like to welcome my newest Follower, Margaret, I hope you enjoy your visits and thanks for following.
Tonight I would like to share a card I made for Sue & Harvey of Imagination Crafts in November this year. I have used their very pretty Orchid Trio stencil, Starlight paints and distress inks.
Matt a square of black card onto the 7"x7" ivory coloured card, leaving half an inch of the base card showing. Matt a piece of peach paper onto the black matt, leaving a very small border of black showing.
Using a black ink pad, stamp the sentiment on the right-hand side of the peach paper. Die-cut the butterfly, using the Spellbinder's die and then paint with the antique gold Starlight paint. Die-cut a body from black card, using a Memory Box butterfly die and glue to the butterfly, then glue to the top right corner of the peach paper.
Die-cut one small, one medium and one large flower using the Sizzix flower die. Paint the flowers with the orange oxidized Starlight paint. Glue these to the bottom right-hand corner.
Glue three small black gemstones to the bottom right.
Cut a piece of white card and colour with distress inks :- scattered straw and forest moss, using a blending tool. Lay the Orchid trio stencil on top and using a dabbing motion, dab the orchids with the orange oxidized and topaz Starlight paints, using a stencil brush. Trim this down, cutting at an angle on the two top corners.
Matt this onto a piece of black card, then matt onto the left of the base card. Voila! card is now finished. Many thanks for stopping by my blog, hope you've enjoyed your visit. Enjoy the rest of the Christmas Holiday and I will be back quite soon. Have fun and be happy.
Love and rainbows,
Christmas Hugs Jennifer xx.
