Time for another challenge at CD Sunday where the theme this week is "F for ...." - so quite a wide field to play in I think.
I love the use of flourishes on cards - so that was my starting point & the CD I chose to search on was My Craft Studio Flourishes Vol 1. As well as flourishes there are some great backgrounds & silhouette patterns, & there amongst the silhouettes were some fairies. So a double whammy!.
Here is my card;
It is funny how our card making goes in patterns isn't it - at the moment I am very much into monochrome or black & one- colour. Here the colour with black is pink. I started with an A4 piece of white card & in MCS created a pink sheet with black flourish overlay. I selected a flourish & a fairy & grouped them together then placed a pink background behind it. I wanted it cut out in a circle & then realised I might not have the means to do this. But an earlier play with a Tonic die that had an outer circle (oval) ring showed me that I did have the means. This was then layered onto black card & cut out leaving a very narrow border. I printed an extra fairy & cut her out leaving out some of the fiddly pieces which would show beneath her when I mounted her on the main image on sticky pads.
During my current unpacking (which seems to be ongoing) I came across a supply of paper ribbon - it has been in a box for ages. I used to make bows & flowers with it - there is a small piece under the card in the photo. It is actually described as paper rope because it is wound up so tight - but you unravel to get paper ribbon. Some bling was added with pink gems.
Now all I need is for the arrival of my new envelope maker recently ordered from C&C to make the right sized envelope for it.
Do pop across to the blog there are some amazing cards each week.
Thank you for stopping by & if you have time before leaving a comment would be very nice please.
