Here is today's card -
It is an unusual colour combination but it was inspired by the backing paper which has little blue butterflies on it. I started with an 8 inch card blank which I covered with pale blue core'dinations. I then cut a piece of pink paper from my stash (yes that resolution is working well) using Die'sire lace border 6 and wrapped a piece of blue and pink ribbon (from my stash) around the paper. I then matted it onto the card base. The image is from Crafter's Companion and is called party with Bamboo. It has been coloured with the following Spectrum Noirs -
- Bamboo - IG1, IG6, IG7, IG10, and PP1
- shoe - BP2, BP6, PP5, PP1, PP2, PP3, BGR1, BGR2, BGR3, BGR4, BGR5, GG1 and GG2
- flower - BP1, BP3, BP7, CG3 and DG2
- butterfly - BP1 and BP7
- shadow - IG1
- sky - IB1
The sentiment is from LOTV's happy circular sentiments (set 8) and has been cut out using Spellbinder's stately circles. I inked it whilst still in the die with spun sugar distress ink and then applied some ink to the outer edge of the die cut.
I cut some butterflies using Tonic's Marazine blue die and some pale blue core'dinations and attached them to the card as shown. To finish I added some pink pearls (from The Ribbon Girl) to the centre of the butterflies and a very messy bow using pink and blue ribbon.
