Good morning, good morning, good morning.
The sun is still shining, perhaps summer is finally here!
Just a quick post to share a card I made for the latest challenge over at Less is More and a couple of others got in there as well!
This card reminds me so much of my bloggy friend Loll. I love her work and think I must have absorbed her style and it just burst out with this card. I started by inking up a square panel that was floating around my bits box. I inked it up using the 'Sunset' colours for the challenge and blended them into an ombre effect and then just for the hell of it I spritz it with a fine mist of corporation wine, plain water to you. As the wonderful Darnell would say 'Hammy just whispered in my ear'.
Now what? The intensity of the colours meant I had to use a white background but it looked a little plain, so I got out my trusty ef box and had a furtle about. I picked out a couple of folders including this Cuttlebug one which I finally went with. I can't remember when I last used it. It was too small for my panel, as they always are, so had to faff around extending it, hope you can't see the join.
Now the question was what to put with it? I thought of a card by Loll I saw recently and thought of this MB butterfly duo and it just had to be in gold mirry and I just had a little bit of vellum on the desk that did the solid section, you can still just about see the panel through it.
When I made the CASE of Virginia's card I didn't think I had any gold thread but I had a rummage through my sewing threads and found some, so that was added into the pot, followed by a Marianne tag greeting and voila!
