Today's post is an unscheduled extra as I would normally be posting my DT inspiration for hobbycutz however as the new term starts in 2 weeks last weeks challenge is for 2 weeks! I cant wait to get started on the new term as 2 of my followers ( and really goopd friends) have made the teasm so huge congrats to Wendy and Mrs duck, click on their names to see visit their inspirational blogs or click HERE to visit the challenge play.
Back to today here is a post I put together to fill the gap as 'twere! I was palying with some Mica powders that bought form Ebay after Mrs Duck found them seriously discounted on there. I started by creating the background using a few leaf stamps, creative expressions I think, and stamping them randomly using Versamark. I coloured the images using alternate colours iof mica powder and in real life they realy shine. I used three colours in total a soft gold, yellow gold and a green on Brwon PMD cardstock ( This works best on smooth cardstock textured gives a dirt effect)
Once completed I cut the piece using Spellbinders curved borders on and cut a gold mat tomatch. I loved the simple card I showed a few weeks ago and this one turned out decptively similar, thereforte to make it look different I wanted to use the sweep and disguise it slightly as well. The perfect answer seemed a flurry of gold die cut butterflies. I simpley cyut 6 butterflies in gold mirror card using spellbinmders les papilions 2 and textured them over a ball tool before mounting them along the edge using small foam pads.
There is no sentiment on this card as I made a little mistake I wanted a sentiment on the brwon background however I placed the butterflies before whioch meant I wasn't able to get the stamp into the space ! Oh well we all live and learn.
A small card but veryu delicate looking.
