Every once in a while I like to make a collagy type of card. These are so fun to make and I just let myself go with the flow of what is developing on the card.
To start these cards I choose a focal image first - this time it was the black butterfly.
Then I choose the stamp sets to use on the background
Next comes the colour scheme
First I sponge the colour on to a piece of Shimmery White cardstock, then I stamp the images on top of the sponging.
I stamped the sentiment right on the stamped / coloured piece
Then I ran it through the Big Shot using the Fluttering embossing folder to add even more texture
This was then layered onto some Marina Mist cardstock
A bit of Sweet Sugarplum ribbon wraps around the two layers and then everything was attached to a Thick Whisper White card base.
At the end I added the butterfly and put a string of Basic Rhinestone Jewels for his body and for the bling. Because, you know, no card is complete without bling, right ?????
