Pink Elephant Inspirational Play Along & One Stop Crafts - Add some Sparkle
I had looked at the picture of this magazine on The Pink Elephant blog several times and loved the colours in the frontispiece. I thought I really would like to have a go, but didn't have anything even remotely in the right colours. I found the backing paper as a free download from Canon and once I had that and searched through my plain sheets of paper and card I was away!
The flowers are made from Woodware punches and the butterfly is from a Cuttlebug die. The sentiment is by Hero Arts. Although the green is rather vibrant I think that on the whole the effect is quite soothing.
One Stop Crafts challenge this week is to add some sparkle. I don't know if you can see it, but there is Glamour Dust on the butterfly and the edges of the flowers. There's nothing quite like a bit of twinkle is there!
P.S. I've just had a look at these two images next to each other and I think that I should have distressed the edges of the circle a little, instead of just chalking them. I may have a play later ... I'll see.
