Creative Inspirations DT (55) - Easel Card
Charisma Cardz (10) - Easel Cards
The Rainbow Lady (143) - Best Friends
Time for another Creative Inspirations challenge and this time we want to see your Easel Cards. So, nice and easy! Our sponsor this time is Bunny Zoe Crafts and our monthly sponsor Simon Says Stamp both with fantastic prizes for one lucky winner. The Dt have made some great cards so pop on over to their blogs and have a look.
This is the first time I have had a go at making a 'twisted' easel card and was suprised at how easy it was. I got the tutorial from my DT buddy Cheryl's blog here, thanks Cheryl for an easy to follow tutorial.
I have a 'thing' going on at the moment where I want to try and use some really old stash and believe me there isn't paper in my craft room much older than this one. You know what it was like when you first started making cards and had to have everything whether you used it or not. Well, these papers were no exception, I just had to have all the pads.... This one, like most of them only got used once and what a shame as they are so beautiful.
After covering the base card I added glitter glue to the butterflies on the paper. I have coloured the image/sentiment with pencils and chalk, layered them and added some brads. To finish the card I added a couple of vellum butterflies to which I applied more glitter glue. Thanks for looking.
