Sending Hugs

Hello All,

This afternoon I have had a little time in the craft room to play. 

This card was inspired by the colour challenge at Less is More-colours of peacock'r feathers. I thought this was a really original idea for a colour challenge and had to get straight to getting inky. I did have a hunt around blogland for a few more challenges to give me the lay out and final ideas.

This is what I created:


I apologise for the shadows but London decided to get cloudy and as I knew this was the only day I would get chance to blog for a few days I wanted to get this posted....so shadows we have!

I used the peacock colours of gold, turquoise and purple.

The solid butterfly is made from a larger piece of water coloured card that is a mix up bushos colours using the clingfilm and starch method which gives a stunning marble effect. The open butterfly die is cut from gold glitter paper. This was glued onto a STAMPlorations stitched rectangle following their Sketch Challenge for the layout. The sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers

It turns out that Less is More originally inspired the idea for this challenge and a little hunt around blogland gave me further inspiration to complete. Here is the list of challenges I thank for doing this:  

CASology-stitch
NBUS-Darnell's challenge of 'never been used schtuff'-these dies are newbies.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend x
