I'd like to share a card I made for my best friend Sue for her birthday, which was a couple of days ago.
I've used one of my favourite LOTV images (James - Butterflies), which I've coloured using Copics. I added some piercing to the right hand side of the image panel and some lace and ribbon to the left, before adding acetate to form a dome over the image. I then found a couple of tiny butterfly stamps to make the butterflies attached on top of the acetate. It's not easy to see in this photo but hopefully it'll be clearer in a later piccie.
I've used some First Edition paper for the backing, distressing the edges with a Tim Holtz tool. We have a bit of a joke between us about doilies, as I use then quite a bit, so I had to add one behind the image. Sue also adores butterflies - "You can never have too many!" - hence the butterfly flourish. I cut it in cream and also dark pink, cutting the butterflies from the dark pink one to add separately. I've added pearls to the butterflies , added a LOTV sentiment and also added the word Friend on a small die cut which I think is Spellbinder, attached to the acetate.
To finish I added a 'bunch' of flowers and a couple of pearl and crystal accents.
I'm really pleased how this turned out. I think I may have found my mojo again...
I would like to enter this for the following:-
Thank you so much for visiting. I hope to see you again soon.
