I had my reservations about this card as I was making it, not being too sure about the black, but now (she says modestly) I love it!
I was asked by a friend to take elements a “save the date” card (above) to use in another card for her to give for the actual wedding day
The foliage and butterflies are both made using punches. The butterflies, took a while, as I coloured them as closely as I could to the ones on the “save the date” card and then double layered them to give dimension. Finally I added a tiny amount of Stampin’Up dazzling Diamonds micro glitter to give it a fairy tale type feeling.
Placing the black foliage was tricky as it was so small and I wanted to keep it as symmetrical as possible. I joined the leaves up with a little doodling and then added small very, very sparkly iridescent glass flat gems here and there to finish the whole thing off.
To be honest the picture doesn’t bring out all the sparkle and vibrant and contrasting colours …… I just hope my friend likes how I have interpreted the initial theme.
