Beauty butterfly card

6 Feb

Here is another installment in my application for The Shabby Tea Room Design Team. Check out the call here. And you can see my first project, an altered CD case, here. Both of the projects were inspired by a beautiful pink/black polka dot tea set.

This card was a much more artistic interpretation while the first project was more literal for me. Here is today’s installation!

When I create a “collage” look, I like to keep layering elements, moving them around, adding things, letting others go…until I’m happy with it and then I glue it all down. I know that may sound like “Duh!” but most of the time, when I’m creating, I start gluing things down so they don’t slide around and then get locked into a simpler design. So it takes some restraint on my part to create this kind of design. It is a good exercise for me.

Here’s one more look, a close-up, that shows some of the shimmer from the dusting of the Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. Ooh, la, la!!!

Thanks for stopping by today!!
