Well this really did prove to be a challenge. Over at Crafty Cardmakers they have a challenge called "A Challenging Challenge", the idea of which is to create a card either using something bought, stashed and never used, or something not done because you are scared of it.......... you get the idea?
Well, I had seen Vix's See Through Easel Card and wanted to have a go, but kept putting it off, so I thought now was the time. I cut the frame and the card on my Pazzles Inspiration (Polly), she is such a good friend! I also persuaded Polly to cut the scrolls (they are from a Pazzles disk which I have had for ages and not used!). The image is a digi stamp from Dewdrop Craftz called Butterfly Spiral. I printed her on acetate, using my laser printer, then foiled her using the laminator (another technique that I am just trying out). I have glittered parts on the back of the acetate, and for the dress I used my quickie glue pen and gold leaf flakes. Not sure that she shows up as well as she could on the picture, it is quite hard to photograph something which is, in the main, transparent.
I used some background paper with butterflies on from the Spring book from Crafty Individuals, die cut and glittered a butterfly for the stopper, and added a greeting. I thought it needed just a bit of something else, so added the stick on jewels around the frame.
I am also entering this into Stampalot Challenge April which has the theme of "Fantasy", think this might fit, and would love to win the Fabulous prize of a Cricut machine!
Here are two more pictures.
