I'm so excited about this card that I've got to share with you today - it was born out of a browse through the scrapbook stamp society digis - I just saw the eyes and had to have them! I hope you like it as much as I do!
So this is what I did - the background is a piece of Tim Holtz distress pad paper further distressed with black soot and stamped on using an archway ( is it a gothic arch?) done by sheena douglass when she was with creative expressions. The digi was merely printed out and mounted up on black card. The flowers were hand made using the bitty blossoms dies - large and small - with black soot added to their edges once they had dried in position. The butterfly came from barbara gray's last lesson on create and craft using film and fibre and its layered up as barbara showed us. The dream came from my stash and the final arch was just stamped and cut out and attached using dimensional glue.
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
letsinkitup: all girl (I have used two rubber stamps and a digi - I hope that should be ok).
CYPCcraftyourpassionchallenges: Gone gothic
Sunday Stamperpinkleart: Dream
Simon says stamp and showsimonsaysstampandshow: Layers
Whoopsi daisycutedaisymay: make your own embellishments
alteredelusionsandartitude: anything goes.
I'm off to Doncaster to the crafting show tomorrow - looking forward to having a good browse and spending the day with my crafty mum!!! I have a couple of spare tickets if anyone is going but hasn't got theirs yet - I won't get there until about 10.30 though - give me a shout if you'd like them and we can try and meet up so I can pass them on!
Have a wonderful Friday and a super crafty weekend - back on Sunday with DT work for the Crafty Pad! Thanks in advance for any comments you may choose to leave!
