Wings

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at the Double D Challenge blog. Team Darlene is hosting this challenge with the lovely theme of “Just Wing It”.  Please visit the Double D Challenge blog and see more wonderful samples from our talented designers and join in the fun! We have a prize to give away to one lucky player which will be chosen by Random.org. and a Top Creative Winner and Top 3 will be chosen by the Design Team.

I was inspired by the black, white, purple and aqua colors in the mood board. I randomly splashes some watercolor paint on watercolor paper and then die cut the butterflies. To add more interest to the card I stamped a strip of typescript as a background for the bow and butterflies. The top panel was then lifted from the card base with mirror tape for dimension. I finished off with a black die cut sentiment and for a little bit of bling I added clear baubles. Hope you like my take on the challenge.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

The  butterflies

The sentiment and typescript

A peep at the inside

    Oh my goodness, this is simply stunning. I love all the texture in the background, and the butterflies are just gorgeous. I really like the colors here, and die cutting the butterflies in black is genius. Just like stained glass. FABULOUS!!!!

    Beautiful butterflies, Amelia! You brought out those colors perfectly. They’re almost identical. And the black… all over pretty amazing! Love how you used the typescript. I never would have thought, but you have such a creative mind. Lovely!
