|Queen of the Night|
Just took my old design and the new challenge 129 at The Play Date Cafe.
What I love about this inspiration photo are the flowers at the bottom - straight from the farmer's market - and the boldness of the colors combined with the stark white in the top two photos.
So, I made flowers out of various purples combined with a lotta white.
Die cut the flower layers PP, recycled security envelopes and old dictionary. Used a stylus to make a "bowl" in center of each layer. Used a scoring tool to curl some petal edges under. Inked edges. Assembled flower and added brad to center. Stamped large flourish on card base and added a die cut border strip to ground the embellies. Attached large flower with foam tape.
Punched a coordinating center for small flower and added girlfriend's initial to it. Added some shimmery watercolors to the butterfly colored with colored pencils and attached. Spritzed with some Perfect Pearls. Stamped the "glückwunsch" (congratulations) sentiment inside.
Catch the shimmer?
Because it's Anything Goes over at Simon Says Stamp, I'm going there. This week there's even a chance to win some Paper Smooches stamps!
Thanks for your visit. Hope your day's - purple!
