We are half way through the week and I am already looking forward to the weekend. How is your week going?
I made this card for the Challenge at the Butterfly Challenge Blog, this time it is Challenge 22 Butterflies and Brads. I used lots of Snippets to make this card so I would like to enter the challenge at Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 160.
As the challenge involved brads I started off by looking through my stash to see what I could find. I was delighted to find four small flower brads in two colours and that set the colour scheme for the card, you can see them in the corners.
Everyday I have a peek at Sue Wilson's blog and I remembered that she had made a card using this technique that is where my inspiration came from.
I cut the apertures with the Sue Wilson die set Magical Butterflies I love how they put detail around the edges of the aperatures. The little butterflies were cut with the smallest die from the set.
I stamped the back images with Black Archival and heat embossed them with CS Clear fine detail embossing powder. Then I inked the images with several shades of distress ink. I moved the images around behind the apertures until I was happy with the effect before I stuck them in place.
The sentiment was cut with a Signature die. I was really pleased with how the card turned out.
I hope the rest of the week is good for you.
