A challenge with Therese
Today my blogging buddy Therese Calvird and I have a little treat for you. When we met in person over a year ago, we decided that we should have a mini challenge between us. It has taken a little while to get off the ground, but better late than never right?
For today’s challenge we are using this gorgeous cake as our inspiration.
I loved the airy look of the butterflies and the overall colour scheme. Here is what I came up with.
I white heat embossed the Hero Arts Antique Engraving’s butterfly onto vellum and cut it out. The leaves are also die cut from vellum to replicate that airy look on the cake. In order to create some interest in the background, I blended in some distress inks and then using a Studio Calico Chevron mask, I lightly spritzed it with some water. The water reacts with the distress ink and created a watermark look.
Well I am off to Therese’s blog – Lostinpaper, to she what gorgeous creation she has made. How about you hop on over as well?
