Butterflies and Flowers

Hello there. I have a project to share with you today that has taken me completely outside of my comfort zone. I have no idea what I’m doing, I have no idea what I’ve done – but I enjoyed playing.

I took inspiration from several challenges, gathered some stuff together, and set to gluing and sticking and layering and……well – here it is:

I printed out some digital papers and tags Vectoria Designs, and stuck down to some card to give a little bit of body to them.

On the base card I placed some patterned paper – no idea where from – and started to add the elements. I wanted the butterfly sticker and sentiment to be used on one side, and lots of flowers on the other.

I added some glitter – then decided it looked awful – so I covered the glitter with pieces of washi tape……..!

The flower tags were cut and arranged as you see, and I even added another butterfly.

I found some glass domes and added some of them and laid one over a flower image to give some more dimension to the colour.

Some of the areas looked a little bare, so I took a swirly heart stamp and added some detail with that – you can see part of it next to the black butterfly sticker……

I still have no idea what I’ve done, or what I’m going to do with it – but I enjoyed the process – very freeing……..no focus or plan to what I did, no squaring things off – just sticking…….

I have another kit from Craft Box UK – the Alice in Wonderland kit – so I may have another go at a different – well – what is it? Is it collage? Is it mixed media? Is it both? No clue, absolutely no clue…….

I shall be entering the following challenges:

Just Add Ink Mixed Media – (ink, 3D objects, tags, washi tape…..)

Hello everyone. I have a CAS die-cutting card today:

Even though it looks CAS – it took me a little while to get the triangle right. Funny how what seems like the simplest things take the most time, isn’t it?

On a white card base, I layered a piece of glossy black card – very, very difficult to get that to come through on the photos – but it is a matt kind of glossy – not too shiny………

The white triangles are die cut from an old, old, old Spellbinders set – it says 2013 on the back of the packet!

Getting the angles of these two triangles on the card was the hardest part – fiddling and moving, then cutting away part of the top triangle….

The sentiment is from a piece of card with lots of sentiments on from Craft Box UK.

I’m off to do some layering stamping for another challenge – if I can line ’em up properly, that is…………

I shall be entering the following challenges:
