Free Range at SplodgeAway

Hello folks, well we've certainly been having a wonderful summer with lots of sunshine so far. I've take inspiration from all the sunshine for my project for this week's theme at SplodgeAway where the DT are making 'free range' projects. The challenge for me was which mask to choose as there are so many gorgeous masks in the land of SplodgeAway!

Anyway after a lot of dithering around, I decided to use a couple of my old favourite masks, Butterfly Creator and Floral Butterfly Wreath. It was a really quick and easy card to make, I blended hansa yellow, diarylide tint and orange tint over some linen cardstock and them embossed the Floral Butterfly Wreath mask with my GC, I then blended some deeper yellow PanPastels over the top and added lots of tiny pearls to the centre of the flowers and the butterfly bodies. I created the larger butterflies in the same way. The sentment is one of my all time favourites from Chocolate Baroque. To finish off I simply added a seam binding bow and a paper rose.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
CRAFT: Monochromatic
Delicious Doodles: anything goes
Pumpkin Spice: sunshine
Seemacrafts: Butterfly
Sweet Pea Stampers: Embossing
Totally gorjuss: anything goes with pearls

Hope you're having a good day, thanks so much for visiting today

  4. Hi Claire
    I only tend to get time to flick through the Splodgeaway blog, without getting to the individual DT's blogs but as this gorgeous card popped up on my reading list, I couldn't resist popping by for a closer look.
    I have this mask and so your lovely card has given me another idea as to how to use it.
    Another follower added to your list!
    Best wishes
