I am becoming obsessed with my dollar store glimmery washi tape. It gives a perfect touch of sparkle...really shimmery yet not bright and tawdry. Thank goodness I bought three colours, pink, blue and black. I know washi is sort of been there, done that, for some. But I never got into it before. You can expect to see lots of glimmery washi tape on my posts to come!
I was sorting out my snippets today and noticed this Heidi Grace Dreams DP. The random blue butterflies on it caught my eye. I knew I had a blue 3D butterfly with me and a quick perusal of my card at hand found this shimmery pearl blue card for the mat.
All that looking to find something to go with more of my blue washi...lol
First, I got the glimmer washi on the corners of the DP, and then matted and mounted that onto my card base. Thank goodness there are a few pale pink teensy butterflies on this DP to tie in the pink on the ballerina's tutu. I was able to use one of the Ballerina Kiddo images Little Miss C and I coloured last year. There is a generous amount of Stardust Stickles on her wings and on her tutu! Hope you can see it...
.I didn't have any complementary die cut circles on hand up here, so used a pink doily instead. Two doilies to be precise...I find two always makes the colour crisper.
Tied the blue back in with the blue butterfly and called it done! If you look really closely, there is a wee diamond on the center of the fairy wand. That Gem will let me pop by Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge as the theme is Butterflies and G for Gems.
I am trying to make some simpler cards lately. Cards to fill up the finished card box. This one will most likely by used for a birthday, but could be pressed into service for other occasions, so I have not added a sentiment yet.
I am entering this card into the following challenges.
1. Pixies Crafty Workshop - must use snippets
2. The Butterfly Challenge. - #34 Butterflies and G is for gems
