Things with Wings!

Just popping in with a quick card for a few challenges as I was particularly inspired by a new challenge blog (to me) how remiss, over at Sparkles Monthly Challenges. Their theme for this month is “Things with Wings” The Design team has created some beautiful cards full of inspiration and the gallery is filled with creative fabulousness.

I used this huge butterfly die cut by Tim Holtz called Perspective and it really is HUGE. I applied several layers of embossing powder in black all over and some hot pink in the centre. Behind the butterfly are layers of Distress Oxide spritzed with plenty of water, Nuvo crystal drops in black, and a Tim Holtz sentiment sticker in the middle to finish off.

I’m also playing along with NBUS as my butterfly has never been used before, mainly because I was so scared of it’s size.

Triple B who are asking us to feature Birds, Butterflies, Blooms, or all three

Do pop over and check out the aforementioned blogs as there is something for everyone plenty of creative beauty to get those crafting juices going.

Take care

  1. Did you have a dream about giant butterflies after making this? If you did, I’m sure they were dreamy dreams because this is both schparkly and stunning, Maria! What a cool idea to use e/p in this way! Thank you for inspiring everyone at NBUS and thank you for the massive compliment over at mine!

  2. Wow! That’s is absolutely enormous. I would be scared to work with such a big for. It looks like it’s dripping, that’s a lovely effect and you make the pink look easy but I bet it wasn’t. As always to he erfect sentiment to I my my life my life is complement the image.
