Hey there all my Peeps! I’m excited to share that I’m starting my New Years crafty goal for 2018 which is trying different color combinations and design styles. This card has a blue and green color scheme which is a bit outside my comfort zone…but I love how it turned out! I’m using the Nature Sketchbook Collection from Graphic 45 which is one of my favorites.
It’s sooooo green lol. Just kidding…I really do like it.
The idea behind this card was nature which was easy to accomplish using this collection.
These Wild Orchid Crafts are dreamy. I did not hold back with the layering lol. There is a sweet little fussy cut butterfly tucked in and pretty chevron striped bow to fill in this arrangement. A bit of netting adds texture.
Prills help to bring the colors in to the center focal image which is a cut apart from the collection. I just love the sentiment.
This corner has a larger butterfly, more of the flowers and netting, and gold twine tied in a simple loopy bow.
This clip was given a face lift with alcohol ink and now it coordinates perfectly! The chipboard frame is finished with antique gold embossing powder for a subtle shine. A bit of messy sewing lines adds texture to the patterned paper.
The edges of the papers are all distressed and scrunched up which is a subtle..but effective accent. Look at all the dimension I was able to get with the layers.
I’d say this is a good start to my new crafty goal. No pink in sight lol.
Please enjoy this video I’ve prepared for this card…..
