This week's Shining Light Challenge 31 over at the Our Daily Bread Design Blog is to "Wing It". "Include anything with wings on your creations...this can be birds, angels, butterflies, bugs, etc. It need not be your image...it can be embellishments or on your paper." I couldn't wait to break out another new set for me, Don't Worry to make something for this challenge!
I stamped the Chicory flower twice, colored with Tombow markers and carefully cut them out to be able to arrange them as desired. The butterfly is colored with the same blue marker but in layers to slightly darken the color. I then used the Clear Stardust pen to add some sparkle on the butterfly and some dimension on the centers of the flowers! I love that pen! : ) The patterned paper behind the sentiment and the top portion of the card has tiny glitter dots on it so I added a stripe of Stickles to the faux ribbon on the paper for more sparkle and to tie it all together.
I love this paper from DCWV - Garden Party stack. The stripe paper and doily are part of the lighter background paper. For this card I thought the light top part needed a dark border also. To add the dark background frame around the top portion of the card, I cut the dark paper the same width as the lighter paper, then I cut in 1/8" from the edge on both sides of the lighter paper, from the top just down to the faux ribbon/stitching line. I really like the result here!
