Its that awful post christmas time, when all you can see is household jobs that need doing and all you want to do is hibernate in your craft space.
Well I sneaked some me time and made a simple little card, which I think is quite striking and also has loads of potential for other crafty projects.
So first of all I chose three toning colours from my Paper Artsy paint collection, then I measured and masked off the three panels. I did two layers of paint to get a more intense colour, but looking at it now, I think three might have been better. Once dry I added a simple silver line to the outer edges.
I then stamped my favourite butterfly stamp, from the Tick Tock set, (the reason I love it, is it's a blank canvas so you can make the wings hold whatever pattern you want), I used the hexagon background stamp (another great set, well worth investing in as it contains four different backgrounds) and then coloured in a few hexagons with toning pencils. I attached to the card and added a transfer sentiment from my collection.
and here are the products I used.
So Happy New Year everyone and I hope you also find some me time to craft in.
