Today, I'm taking the big step of entering my card into a challenge blog, namely Pixie's Snippets Playground. Its with trepidation but I really fancy having a go so we'll see, who knows :)
So here is my card, the main focus is the butterfly from Memory Box that I paper pieced together from a tiny snippet of red cardstock, red being my favourite colour so I won't throw the tiniest bit away. Actually, most of the card is made up from snippets of cardstock and paper from my scrapbooking days.
To give a little more definition to the butterfly and create a focal point I've raised it with 3D foam pads. I used a white Inktense watercolour pencil just to add a little detail to the ivy leaves and make them more realistic and less flat.
After yesterday's card, I am really pleased with how this one came out and it reminds of the Red Admiral butterflies I used to see as a child fluttering amongst the garden flowers.
Supplies: White linen cardstock, Black cardstock, Memory Box Vivienne Butterfly and Hexagon, Spellbinders Springtime, Sizzix Tim Holtz Garden Greens, Sizzix Daisy #2 dies, Stamping All Day sentiment stamp and Intense watercolour pencils.
