New Release (post 3!) and That Craft Place Challenge....

Hello Again,

This gets better and better :D
I am here again (3rd time today, remember to press home when you're done reading to see the other 3 New Release posts xx) this time with a New Release Betty Boots for the launch of a new challenge over at That Craft Place Challenge Blog!
The theme is Anything Goes, Mother's Day so I made mine without sentiment so that it suits the theme, as I tell my kids...they should love me everyday! lol

So, which new release have I used this time.....
Here she is...Back to Work Betty

Back To Work Betty

Matching insert

I have got to say, I do love this one...

Here's the how's:
Back To Work Betty is coloured with Copic's on 300gsm super smooth card from That Craft Place and then she is matted onto dark silver and then black card to frame her.
The backing papers are from Craftwork Cards Postcards from Paris paper pad from That Craft Place and they too were matted to match.
I have kept the design simple so I could use a large bow statement piece, which is made from DoCrafts rushed ribbon (again That Craft Place) and then I added a large gorgeous embellie in the centre.  The butterflies are made using folded book pages tied in the centre with string..Top Tip, I used a square punch to cut them out so that they were all the same size and it was easier to do :D

Here's the close ups:
Simple design but fabulous dimension

Fan butterfly tied with string

match the colour tones throughout

fold out the Butterflies to different widths to add interest
