You Inspire Me!

For my second post of the day is a card for the Crafty Creations #105 - Three Little Words.

The butterflies, flower stamp and the sentiment are all by Elusive Images.

The main flower image  and the large and small butterflies was stamped on glossy card with black ink and coloured with Promarkers. before being cut out.

The layer beneath the main image was made from white card which was dipped in various shades of blue and lilac Distress ink which had been splodged onto a craft mat and spritzed with water until a pleasing effect was obtained.

This layer and the black layer beneath were cut out with Grand Nesties. The sentiment was cut out with the same style of Nestie (as was the black gloss layer beneath). The sentiment was coloured with the same Distress inks, applied with a blender tool whilst it was still in the die. This gives the contrasting white edge.

The base card is made from lilac textured card, A5 in size. This has been used in a "tent" configuration with the  ribbon wrapped round about an inch from the fold and ties with a bow. The main image was added with D-S tape to keep it flat tot eh base card. The sentiment and the butterflies were added with foam pads.

Have a good Sunday, one and all.
