I'm back today with another card for the City Crafter Challenge Blog. This week is Challenge #219 ~ Sunshine and Lavender. This was such a fun challenge because dark purple and bright yellow are not colours that I would have thought to put together, but once I put my game face on, I was really happy with how it turned out. That is the great thing about such a fantastic challenge, it makes you step outside your comfort zone and discover new and exciting things. Hope you enjoy!
The backgrounds, ribbon and flowers are all hand done and were coloured with Tim Holtz distress inks Dusty Concord and Mustard Seed.
I made the butterfly from a silicone mold.
For the last two shots, I really zoomed in. I spritzed the entire card with Lindy's Stamp Gang Scintillating Silver Glitz and everything is glistening. The pictures really don't capture how sparkly everything is.
Dies: Sizzix-ornate frame 2, Memory Box-honeysuckle vine, Joy Crafts-flower 1
Stamps: Martha Stewart-stamp around the page, Rubbernecker-victorian floral
Handmade: the background and all of the flowers except the little white rose
From My Stash: sprigs, stamen clusters, beads, lace, raffia and seam binding
