Hi again folks,
I hope that you are having fun and crafty times 🙂
The two cards that I am sharing with you today are , well, by-products of some altered art projects that I have been working. I will share these at a later date as they are going to be gifts for someone and their birthday is some time away yet.
By natural progression the projects ended up having a black and pink colour scheme. There ended up being lots of extra materials left so I decided to use them to make a couple of cards.
So, let’s get to it! Here are the two cards that I created:
I used a combination of mixed media and lots of layering. I had also recently found a pack of acetate embellishments hidden amongst my stash and what luck!, they coordinated!
I chose two large, pink, acetate rose clusters to be the main toppers. Then I began to layer – stamped card base, distressed papers and stencilled banners. I included vellum for balance and silver thread for sparkle and texture.
To balance the clusters I added vellum butterflies and clear enamel drops. I then co-ordinated the card interiors plus the envelopes:
I hope that you have found todays share both interesting and hopefully inspiring too!
Any questions please ask away.
Take Care and Happy Crafting!
