What a week…
Gee its gone fast.
I don’t know about you but time is flying, this morning when I woke up I was thinking its what day Tuesday….
Its Wednesday already and I have so much to do today!
And there’s so much I’m behind on.
Last week I’m sorry but I completely forgot Global Designer Challenge…..it closes on Monday (I think) and they announce the winner/s Monday night.
And I thought better go and have a look and then thought what did I do for it, I can’t remember. The reason I couldn’t remember was because I’d forgotten – BLONDE MOMENT!
I even had it all worked out in my head…..
So I’m not forgetting this week!
The Theme is week is ……….
Now the way this card came to being……
Stampin’ Up! puts out each year some beautiful rangers of Designer Series Paper (DSP) and like most, I buy it….it beautiful so this is what you do..you buy it!
Then what do you do with it…well it sits on the shelf looking pretty….and looking pretty..on the shelf!
YEP!…I’m the same as you, its there on the self looking pretty!
Well a lovely friend Kylie Bertucci is really encouraging ALL of us to #loveitchopit
Get it of the shelf and use it, chop it up, put it on cards and let others enjoy it too!
I purchased the “Sending Love DSP Stack”, great little 15 x 15 cm (6 x 6″) packs of lovely papers great for Valentines Day.
Well Valentines been and Gone…
So what do we do with the left over papers…use it of course!
One of the lovely papers is a spot.
I used Basic Black for the card and Whisper White as the under layer with the Real Read and White Spot as the base of my card.
the thought here was to keep the card simple…and I needed to add a
WINGED CREATURE….that’s the brief….
a Butterfly, a white butterfly……NOOOOoo!
I ended up with a scrap of Whisper White and some daubers and ink pads….Crushed Curry, Pacific point and Real Red.
I sponged the cardstock with the Crushed Curry and Pacific Point…mix these together and you get ….”GREEN”…don’t you!
At this point using the Butterfly Thinlits and the Big Shot I cut out the butterfly, but its a bit too green.
So I kept going…this wouldn’t be a Michele card unless it MORFS some how.
The two colours were not right with the Real Red and white spot DSP…So added some real Red to the wings.
A little Vellum under to lift from the back ground….still needs something.
(The vellum is adhered under the butterfly in a few concealed spots)
Add some leaves from the Botanical Builder Framelits a bit of silver thread and don’t forget some BLING!
And here is this weeks Creation….Hope its worth the wait..
