Another after work card, once again designed to keep my brain distracted! I'm not sure it has worked this evening but I have created a card for you to consider - it is very different from most other cards I've made. It's not as clean and simple as usual but they do say that "..a change is as good as a rest.." I leave it for you to decide whether that is true or not.
Here it is:
I brayered a large sheet of card with a selection of Fresco Chalk paints to create the background (it is greener in real life!). I cut a square and then added texture using stencils - white ink and black ink. The flower is stamped onto a gessoed page from an old French text book - the frame is die cut from 4 layers of black card to give it more body. The butterfly is cut from a scrap of printed paper.
The end result does not look a bit like I thought it would!! I am entering this month's challenge at the Mixed Media Card Challenge - the theme is Collage with the optional twist of a frame.
I had some great news this morning I've been given an 'Honourable Mention' over at the TIMEOUT challenge for this card. I'm so grateful for this, it really brightened my day!
