Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: If You Make It With Your Heart, Whatever You Create Has SignificanceI truly believe that whatever an artist creates is imbued with the spirit of the artist. We can be so hard on our creations sometimes - judging them, critiquing them. We need to be kind to the works we create - recognizing that our heart and spirit are a part of that creation. In this way, everything we create has significance - it has us.
Today's card began as a desire to use a butterfly as a mask. I die cut a piece of chipboard using the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die and the Big Shot. I then put temporary adhesive on the back of the butterfly and placed it on the Very Vanilla card. I sponged around the butterfly with So Saffron ink and some champagne. Next I repeated these steps over and over until I was happy with the base of the card. By now, the chipboard butterfly was inky and sparkly and I decided I couldn't let it go to waste! So, I stamped the greeting from Charming using Jet Black Staz-On and then stamped the butterfly with an image from Friends 24-7. I stamped the Charming words on a scrap piece of paper and cut some of them out and sponged the edges with So Saffron ink. I added a few to the card with dimensional pieces and also added a word as the butterfly body. The butterfly was adhered to the card with dimensionals. I hope you like it :)
