And this weeks it's my turn to host the challenge and I have come up with the theme of "Petals and Pearls" a perfect way to think about all the lovely Spring blossoms that are bursting into flower. But you all know me, any excuse to use flowers on a project........the guys at Stampalot don't call me 'Botanical Brenda' for nothing I guess.
My card has been created using a new stamp from Magenta 40301P Butterfly Garden which I stamped with versafine black and embossed with detail clear onto a background created with Glimmer Mists sweet clover and tutti fruitti, two of the new limited edition colours. I coloured the blossoms with Marvy pens and stamped the larger butterfly again to cut out and decoupage. The left wing is not actually part of the stamp, so I drew it it to match the other side which seems to work OK. I tore the edges of the piece and distressed with Tim Holtz peeled paint.
The border is Martha Stewart eyelet lace and the swirls a Sizzix die cut through the Big Shot and finally pearls added to embellish.
