No papers and no image!


I made this card on Monday afternoon after making a card with a coloured image. It was so hot the inks were drying very quickly and trying to blend colours was proving challenging. I decided to make something different with no colouring after that and really pleased with the way it turned out. Great for those who want a non cute card.

I have wanted some 6 x 6 embossing folders for a while and finally got round to buying some from Crafter's Companions. I've used a flower folder with sanded Core'dinations. The large sentiment is a Stamposaurus stamp cut with a Nestie and coloured with DI Weathered Wood. The gorgeous butterfly was sent to me with some other die cuts I bought on Facebook. The flowers and corner are from Wild Orchid and the metal flower and pearl are from stash. I used shabby blue frantage on the butterfly and metal embellies. Unfortunately the metal embellies had very little are for the frantage to cling to so as soon as I started heat embossing from underneath I ended up with more frantage on me and my desk than the embellies!
