I hope that you're all enjoying the weekend and that you might even have had some sunshine today.
Here's a card that I've made and I'd like to enter it in a couple of card challenges:
The first one is Allsorts and this week they are asking you to show something starting with 'B,' so my card has black flowers which are made using Tim Holtz Wildflower dies and a black butterfly. This now takes me nicely onto the second challenge which is Mrs A's 'Butterfly Challenge' and their theme is 'F is for faux and/or the colour Jasmine.' My background is a piece of Jasmine coloured card. I checked on Google and it states that the colour is a creamy yellow, and so this was as close as I could find to the description. My 'Faux' are the tiles that I've created in the background. I can't even begin to tell you how many times I got this wrong and how much card ended up in the bin! I've seen this technique used many times before and so I thought that I would give it a go. Having got there eventually, I really like the look of it and it does make a change from leaving the card plain. I shaded it very gently with black ink so that it would co-ordinate with the rest of the card. I finished the card with a black bow on the flowers and a sentiment from Stamps Happen.
