I was blown away by the card that Therese Calvird made to inspire us on Muse this week.
Is this not gorgeous? And intricate. It takes a lot of patience to make a card like that - all those tiny pieces of paper to glue on. I made a similar card but I must admit I cheated.
Can you tell? I first stamped the PTI Beautiful Butterfly on my cardstock. I used Tumbled Glass, Shabby Shutters and Forest Moss Distress inks that I misted before stamping. Then (and this is the secret) I cut the Harlequin Coverplate and glued it over the image. It gives the illusion without all the pieces. I stamped and embossed the Technique Tuesday sentiment on Ripe Avocado. I didn't like the straight piece of paper across the bottom so I cut around the words. I'm not sure I like this either but it's better than it was.
*don't look at the little bump on the left. I didn't notice it until the picture was on the screen so I've put it under something heavy to flatten it down.
Thanks for stopping by.
