I had a phone call from a friend of mine last night wanting a 21st birthday card for her grandaughter. It had to be ready today. I worked out last night, stamp, colours, sketch, papers, embossing powder and embellishments. It just all had to be put together. The sketch is from this week's Truly Scrumptious challenge #23 which is a sketch this week.
The stamp has been stamped in Versacolour black ink and then black glitter embossing powder applied. This is a stunning stamp as the butterfly centre is a fairy and in the wings there are two more fairies in the swirls.
Then I coloured the image using Plumeria H2O. Unfortunately the shape of the butterfly didn't lend itself to a circle and I couldn't find a nestie suitable so turned to my CM shapes. At the last moment I decided to cuttlebug the white linen layer to give some texture. The feathers had been in my mind with the black pearl spray to be used underneath the flowers. I added some kindyglitz, bling for the flower centres and used the '21' as the centre of the top flower.
The second picture shows the sparkle of the black glitter embossing powder and the twinkle of the Plumeria H2O.
I am so happy with the way this card turned out. Do you think it's ok?
It's a very hot and humid day here. Some rainy looking clouds but the sun is out. The sun coupled with the moisture in the ground from the last lot of rain is making it very steamy. Once again I'm thankful for the airconditioned house.
Take care all,
