FLOWER ANT BY CHRISTINE INGRAM



For todays New release card I have used my Polychromos to colour the image, then used pastel chalks to colour the soft background behind the image..Then I gave it a quick spritz with Hair Spray to set the chalks..Then used a Dutch Doobadoo template I  cut out the main card while the image was drying ..I created an easel card for this one and used a cream card,,craft card and  then added some pretty Bird paper from one of my Tonic paper pads..I put a funny faux stitch around the paper and craft card to make a feature around it..I did this on both the bottom and the main part..I then created the stop for holding the card in place using the same material and setting it with 3D glue gel..I then popped this to one side to allow the glue to go off..I then cut the topper out and framed that with craft card ,but before doing so I did my funny wiggly stitch around it to give it more of a frame..This was then Stuck in place using the 3D glue ..I cut out the small butterflies in the Tattered Lave Tuck in Butterflies..This I then gently pushed into place and it glued itself in without doing any damage to the topper..or compromising the Glue..I then coloured a number of the tiny butterflies that were left over from the die and sprinkled them around the top..
For the bottom I used TonicSweet Melia flower dies and cut them from some pink off cuts ,I coloured the leaves green ,I was going to leave them white,but felt it looked too pale..Once glued into place I added some little wooden flower buttons I had in my stash ,then topped them off with a pretty sparkly gem.To finish I added a few of the colourd tiny butterflies from the top and it just finished it off perfectly..Thank you for popping by :)xx
