It's time for some 'shades of summer'! That's the theme for this months challenge over at Crafting Muskateers Challenge Blog...we would love you to come and join in the challenge.
The sponsor this month is The Hobby House, a totally awesome prize so lets get ready, set and go.....
'Shades of Summer' inspiration:
You know those feelings you get when you are really happy with what you've created? Doesn't happen often for me but this one really did make me smile :D
Here's the how and the what's:
Supplies from Crafters Companion
Cardstock: Hint of silver Centura Pearl 300gsm card; Coordinations card; Black Card
Die used: Die'Sire Create a Card Lace Butterfly (seriously if you haven't got this yet, please take a peek....it is so gorgeous and versatile).
Accented by Pebeo Gilding Wax
Supplies from The Hobby House
Embellishment: Lace; Pearl String
From Stash: bakers twine and key
The 'how' is so easy with the Create A Card range of dies... I made a 6 x 6 inch card base using Hint of Silver Centura Peal card ; the Lace Butterfly Create a Card is 6x6 inches. Lay the die onto the Centura Pearl card and simply run through the Cut n Boss.
Then use Coordinations card (6 x 6) and run the die through again. Then lay it carefully over the Centura Pearl you cut before...the raise the wings on both pieces...you will be able to create a double wing look (see photo's) by doing this.
I then rubbed gilding wax over the raised areas and then added lace and pearls to the body of the Butterfly and a final touch using the key and bakers twine.
Here's the close ups:
