To play, choose any line and make sure you include each element of the line in your creation. Since I'd only recently made a tree-Christmas-gold card, this time I went for birthday-die-cut/punch-butterfly.
This card didn't really end up how I thought it would. I had in mind the masked and stamped Lemon-Lime Twist background, then stencilled over with glittery embossing paste. Sitting on that would be a pink die-cut butterfly with some foliage but after that... the vision was a bit vague.
The rest... evolved. Since I had the new in-colours out on my desk along with a spool of glorious crinkle Berry Burst ribbon, I suppose it was a case of natural selection.
In this photo, it is possible to see the lovely shimmer that mixing embossing paste with Diamond Dazzle glitter gives to the background. The outer part of the butterfly's wings have a coat of clear Wink of Stella.
We'd love to have you play along with us this week. If you do, there's a couple of things to keep in mind.
- Create a NEW paper-craft project specifically for this challenge.
- Upload your creation to your blog with a link back to us.
- Please provide a direct link to the post featuring your challenge entry.
- Please link your card to no more than four challenges, total. Entries linked to more than 4 challenges, including ours, will be deleted without notification.
- Have fun!
