Hello! I have exciting news for today....I have been chosen to a GUEST DIVA at priscillastyles "Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge" I am sure looking forward to working with all the talented ladies there. The monthly Sponsor for July is:
My debut card is for this weeks challenge MMSC61. You can make it fancy or make it simple. Here are the sketches
And here is my DT Challenge card using one of priscillastyles own images
Here are the materials I used to create this project:
Butterfly image from piscillastyles web store found HERE
Design Paper from K and Co. "Susan Winget" collection ( found at Joanne Fabrics), DCWV "The Cardstock Stack" textured. (Joannes), Gina K Pure Luxury Ivory.
Ranger Distress Ink in "Vintage Photo", Copic Markers (YG95, Y32, YR15, YR18)
Round lace doilie with the center cut out to create the oval edge. I also airbrushed the lace edge for contrast. I then weaved a length of gold cord in the lace along the edge.
I made the flower with white organza fabric cut into flower shapes. I then "melted" the edges with the heat of a candle flame to curl them. There are many videos and tutorials to be googled for the instructions. I then airbrused them different shades with the above copic colors. After layering the petals, I sewed 3 beads in the center with invisible thread. The leaves are beads found in a package along with some plastic flower beads at Joannes. I twisted them together with wire and attached under the flower with Crazy glue gel. This is my all time favorite adhesive for embellishments I dont EVER want to move again!
I know you cant see this in the photo, but I spritzed the background DP with a copper shimmer mist to add a gleam.
The center oval was embossed using a cuttlebug script folder and highlighted with distress ink
Stardust stickles were applied to the butterfly wings for sparkle and Kaiser pearls and a charm completed the look.
Thanks so much for stopping by on my MMSC Guest Diva debut. I look forward to seeing you next week with a new sketch creation! Sorry this was so long but I wanted to share all the supplies and details.
Have a great week!
