Flutter Inside and Out
Flutter By Wednesday is to decorate the outside AND the inside of your card. I chose to do a criss cross card using a fairy image that I got off of a British craft CD. The image was already coloured up and set in the oval shaped frame. I simply had to cut her out and add some embellishments. I took one of my orange and yellow Copic markers and went over the bodice and skirt so as to bring out the colour a bit. Then I took some clear glitter fingernail polish by Sally Hansen (yes, fingernail polish that I bought at Wal-Mart) and coloured up her wings (sorry the photo doesn't capture the shine and sparkle). Using the fingernail polish was something that my girlfriend (with whom I was crafting when I made this card) had read on the internet, so we decided to give it a go to see the effects. Not a lot different (nor any less expensive) than Stickles.
I mounted the oval onto two cuts of Spellbinder's Labels Ten dies. The first is DP and the second is brown. My criss cross card is white covered with the stripy DP. The flowers are Recollection roses layered on top of Prima, and the round sentiment is an acrylic stamp by Marianne Designs (the same company that makes those beautiful Dutch dies) stamped with ColorBox brown ink.
My inside is made from pinting off the DP that was on the CD that went with the outside fairy. I layered the DP onto orange, then brown, then white. I found the fairy quote online and printed it off onto white card. I cut it using my Spellbinder oval die, embossed the edges with the same die, and then inked the edges with ColorBox brown ink.
I hope you will consider joining us this week at Flutter By Wednesday. Just remember to decorate the inside of your card as well as the outside with either fairies or butterflies.
