This is for a dear friend of mine who loves bling...I discovered how much when I had her over for a card party and I sat trying to hide my dismay as she piled all my best bling onto one card, front, inside and back lol. Of course I've learned not to get anything out I'm going to cry about after it's all gone lol.
The card stock I used here is the Alchemy gold again...so love this, it shimmers, glitters and shines as you move it. I used an entire A4 sheet plus some off cuts to cut out loads of die-cuts....it would have needed to be an A3 sized card to fit them all on lol. I'll be using the rest on another card - or two!! The butterfly is supposed to be lacy, but I didn't knock out all the bits...I glued the back of it to secure them. I liked the embossed look and wanted to add some glitter...just some cheap superfine stuff I found in my stash. The holographic butterfly sticker is gold too.
This is one of my handmade mulberry paper flowers (saw tissue paper flowers on Debra Blog, you can see one of her's here. Just look there, I've even got round to using some fancy head pins I made.
I'm hoping I'm not too late for all the monochrome challenges.
I like to use pinflair glue gel (non silicone based, odourless) to get the layers at different heights and also angle the pieces.....gives a bit of room for manoeuvre too.
A little close up.
