Cue the fabby die I won on Fiona's blog. Lots of die cutting later
and now their rubbish!!!!
I wanted to enter the challenge on Joan's gardens this week and as its using up loads of tiny bits of off cuts it is perfect also for Pixie's snippets. The challenge is to cover a 3"x3" Post A note, use some kind of die cut for the background, purple is the colour and use a butterfly or something from nature .Ok got that.
I used an off cut of 300gsm cream card and an embossing folder with a flower shape not unlike the flower die for the cover and brushed over with yellow peralescent chalk. Corners were cut out using the sizzix corner trellis die from an off cutof white stock card which I then painted using sunflower Luminarte paint. Flowers were painted using winsor & Newton Ink colour 971 violet. Layered up with a bead in the centre they look quite like small viola's. Bird shape was cut from pale yellow card stock and the twirly bits are meantt to look like his wings.
The top page of the pad is decorated using the single petals to keep the page flat and a further corner florish. Bitterly disapointed in the way the photo is depicting the flowers as being blue.
Here is the bottle to prove it! Hopefully the recipient of this gift will like the colour.
