Okey Dokey, this was a slog. Not because it was particularly difficult or because it was an awkward subject, but because it was the day after the night before and several empty bottles of wine!!!!!!!
I knew I wanted to make a Side Step card for my friend's daughter's 21st and butterflies was just perfect especially when I found a cat with wings thanks to Lisa's Altered Art http://www.lisasalteredart.com/
I've dabbled with some templates for the Side Step card already but really liked this design featured by Bev Rochester on the Whiff of Joy blog http://whiffofjoy.blogspot.com/search/label/Special%20Cardshapes
I found her template quite easy to follow using an A4 piece of white cardstock.
Papers used were from K & Co Sparkly Sweet 6 x 6 pad, and some pale blue glossy cardstock.
The text was stamped in Stazon and the faux stitching was done using a CD writing pen.
Both the images are from Lisa's Altered Arts.
The large butterfly (essential for the challenge) - PaperArtsy Tops & Tails 5 - was stamped twice onto the K & Co papers and then decoupaged leaving some movement to the wings.
The numbers are chipboard and coloured with Adirondack dabbers in Willow and Aqua, and edged with Marvy Brush Marker in Lt. Blue.
The 2 corners above the girl image are also chipboard, coloured with Adirondack dabbers in Espresso and Aqua and edged with the Marvy again.
Finally 2 of the brads in the centre of the flowers were coloured with Copic Ciao BG05 - Holiday Blue, to give the shade I wanted.
I hope you like it. I certainly enjoyed making it, x
