This week's challenge at Less is More is a theme challenge. We've been challenged to make a card with things that move...that could be an image or something on the card that actually moves. I have a feeling this week the cards will be a-flutter with butterflies!
This week I've made two different cards - both with something that moves. This first card is actually a card that moves. This first photo is of the card closed. The card base is green and I've used rusty red/orange and yellow as accent colors. The sentiment is computer generated. The butterfly on the front is punched with a MS punch. The flowers on the front are hand drawn. I couldn't find a stamp that would "fit" like I wanted it to, so I just drew in some flowers with a Copics multiliner pen and then colored them with Copics. I sponged the edges of the white paper with some Memento bamboo green. The butterfly is only adhered at the body so that the wings can be lifted. I used 3 small orange pieces of bling for the body of the butterfly and added a dotted trail with a black pen.
Here's what the card looks like opened up. The yellow panels slide open when you open the card and under that I stamped a butterfly. Butterfly stamp is a Flourishes stamp and I colored it with Copics. I also added a bit of Sakura sparkle with a pen. Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. I got the idea for this card from a tutorial that I found online (HERE). She gives a very nice video tutorial for how to create this card. I LOVE how it turned out, but I will tell you that it took me a while to get it right.
This last card is stamped with a Flourishes stamp (Butterflies and Blooms), and colored with Copics. The sentiment is also Flourishes. The dark background is layered on a white card base and is Bo Bunny paper. I added three purple pieces of bling to the top corner.
That's all for me today. Hope you're having a great weekend. Thanks so much for stopping by! Your comments are always appreciated! Until next time....
