Good Morning fellow crafters and bloggers, I hope everyone is having a great week so far? :)
My card today is for our new challenge over at the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge, where our theme this week is 'Shades of Purple', and the winner will receive a brilliant $20 gift voucher to spend online in the Cheery Lynn Store.
I think I have mentioned before that I struggle with 'Purpaidh', as its such a strong colour to work with, so this was quite a challenge for me too! :) lol.
I played with a couple of gorgeous new dies I hadn't used before, and I was blown away at how brilliantly they cut and how detailed the results were. I started off using the Cathedral Lace Frame for my back-drop and overlaid it onto lilac vellum to soften the colour a little. This is such a wonderful die and very versatile too.
I used white bazzill cardstock to cut both the large and the small Lace Faerie Queen Butterflies - arent these just fabulous! :) They also have such beautiful detail. I cut matching angel wings in vellum and this gave it lots of fluttery dimension. I coloured my stamped image, and cut off the original bat-wings, as I was wanting something a little more delicate and pretty :)
I had such a lot of fun making this card and used all the below dies:
DL148 - Cathedral Lace Frame
DL160 - Large Lace Faerie Queen Butterfly
DL161 - Small Lace Faerie Queen Butterfly
B160 - Queen Anne's Lace
DL 193 - Horizon Coved Rectangle
I hope you find time to play along with our challenge this week, and I look forward to seeing some fabulous creations. Dont forget, there is also daily inspiration from the other talented members of the DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog, and if you visit the Cheery Lynn Designs website you can see there is not long to go before the NEW RELEASES!!! :) These are so exciting!
