It's time for another Divine Diva Inspirations challenge, and this time, I even had time to make a card. When looked at the inspiration photo (from The Inglenook Decor) for today's challenge, the first things I noticed were the white alabaster frames and those beautiful butterflies. Even though the arrangement in the photo is fairly monochromatic, a closer look revealed all kinds of shapes, textures, and materials. I incorporated a few of my favorites in my card -- the shimmer of pearls, the colors of shells, and even some beads.
The rest of the card is very quick and easy. The reddish panel is just a piece of cardstock with some acrylic pearlizing medium dabbed on. Once the paint dried, I ran it through my Cuttlebug and embossed it with a swirl pattern. I distressed the edges, and since I had my sewing machine out, I stitched around the edges, too. The butterfly is a Creative Imaginations adhesive rub-on on brown card stock, foiled with gold foil. My white frame is cut with a Nestabilities die from pearlescent paper. The only stamp I used was the sentiment (Stampin' Up).
It's good to be back after my little hiatus, and I can't wait to see what the other Divine Diva team members came up with. You can see all of their creations on their blogs: Anne, Chris, Lori, Julie, and Kerri. And, don't forget that you're welcome to join us. If you do, post a link on Lori's blog, and if you upload to Splitcoast Stampers or Papercraft Planet, use the keyword DDIC.
Thanks for stopping by!
