Anyone else get some crafty time this weekend? Last week when I saw the new Two Peas releases, I almost selected a kit that had bright colors, digital brushes, chevrons and splatters--all elements I gravitate toward. But then I saw another kit...vintage elements, muted colors, flowers. The kit was a little out of my norm, but gorgeous.
I decided to select the kit outside my comfort zone and came up with this card:
Aren't the flowers and butterfly pretty? Except for the Hero Arts sentiment, all of the digital elements are from Jen Reed's Antiquities collection.
I started off by cutting down a 5-panel frame into a 3-panel frame. I often don't think about cutting down supplies, but there was no way I could fit the 5 panels on a card. Under the frame, I layered distressed patterned paper, the floral/butterfly elements, and the sentiment. There was a lot of rotating and nudging going on. ;)
Here's a close-up:
I finished off the card with a pearl and sequin. I didn't have the right color of sequin, so I colored a white one with a Copic.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
