Do you ever have an idea rolling around in your head, but struggle to tie yourself down to create it? Well the sketch from Happy Little Stampers has been drifting on the back burner for a while so when I saw that it would be possible to combine it with a couple of other challenges the time to sit down and get on with it had come.
These are the challenges I'm entering my card into:
Happy Little Stampers sketch, Uniko Studio Things with Wings and Time Out inspired by words - 'You can't make a Rainbow without a little Rain'.
I started by stamping a panel of rainbow coloured flowers and matting it onto plain white card.
The butterfly was stamped onto vellum, heat embossed in white and hand cut before adding three colours to the reverse side. Love how the colours shine through the vellum.
The sentiment was die cut and stamped onto a banner and popped under the butterfly which is mounted onto foam pads. Finally a trio of different coloured pearls was added and I was done.
