Well that is nearly 2017 over, just a few more hours and it will be 2018. I wonder what 2018 has in store for us all? Hopefully a good, positive year! Have you made any New Year resolutions yet? mine is to keep my craft room tidy, once I have it the way I want it - and that is - tidy lol!!!
This is my last project for 2017. For this card I have used one of Imagination Craft's gorgeous masks, this is such a pretty mask and I have teamed it up with some beautiful colours for the background, using distress inks and of course a little bit of sparkle lol! on the butterfly! Below is the finished card.
Cut away approximately a quarter of an inch from one long edge of a piece of A4 white card, then fold it in half portrait style to make a card five and three quarter inches by eight inches.
Matt some deep turquoise card onto the base card, leaving a border of the white showing.
Take a smaller piece of white paper and lay the butterfly mask across it. Colour over the mask with Mowed lawn, Peeled paint, Shabby shutters, Faded jeans and Stormy sky Distress inks and using some Red Starlight paint for the roses. Add a small amount of Bright red Sparkle Medium over the roses and the inner part of the butterfly.
Stamp the sentiment using a black ink pad in the top right corner and 'Happy Birthday' in the centre at the bottom of the paper.
Matt this onto the base card using double sided sticky tape.
Using a piece of white card, lay the butterfly only from the mask onto it and spread the Vineyard Sparkle Medium over it, using the metal spatula. Remove the mask and leave the image to dry.
When this is dry, cut around the edges and glue the butterfly in position on the front of the card but on a different angle to the original image.
Add some silicone glue under each wing to add some dimension to the card.
Glue some turquoise pearls to the body of the butterfly and that is this card finished.
Thank you once again for visiting and commenting on my blog throughout 2017. I really appreciate all the support and encouragement you have given me, this spurs me on to keep going with my card making. I would just like to wish you all a Very Healthy, Happy and Prosperous New Year when it arrives. Have fun tonight. I will be back as usual in 2018.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
Love and rainbows,
