Hi everyone. Will keep try this post short & sweet as my computer has been playing up & I have so much to try to do on it before it changes it's mind about being cooperative again!
Do any of you recall the decorating paint that was 'Hint of a Tint'? This card is something along those lines, not all white but colours ever so pale & subtle. It is my take on a Spring card - Spring under a heavy frost! It is probably difficult to see, but the delicately coloured papers have either floral elements or an overlapping arc shape which happen to sort of match my cut-work designs. The Cameo was in use yet again to create all those lacy layers, not to mention the flowers & butterflies. The bottom of the card front is actually several layers in itself so that the icy blue paper can peep through. The image is that fairy favourite of LOTV's, coloured with Promarkers & the finishing touches are given by dotting two sizes of pearls in relevant places.
The inside is all kitted out to coordinate too & you can see the lacy cut-work design which is actually on the card front but hiding behind some of the other elements. Decorated all over on the inside, the first flowers of Spring are scattered here & there on a shimmering pearlescent (snow) white background - but realistically the butterflies would be hard-pressed to make an appearance for some time yet - so this is certainly a bit of artistic licence. I suspect most flowers would be reluctant to emerge too here in the UK, LOL.
|A lot going on on the inside of the card - but all nice & flat. Quite 'girly' looking too, I think.|
So as the snow continues to come down (though were I live we have escaped very lightly this time), I hope you are all keeping warm & safe.
