How Fragile We Are

Good Evening, we are back with a second dose of inspiration here on the blog today.

Lisa Taggart is here with an absolutely stunning project…


Hi,  I’m mixing a little of the old with the new this week. Today’s project is essentially made like a shaker card in the sense that it has two layers- card and acetate sandwiched between ‘shaker’ foam.

I liked the idea of creating a background scene- a land of butterflies behind glass… and where the butterflies escape through the cracks.

This is the new featured stamp set: How Fragile

and the other sets used:


Live Life Now


Own Kind of Beautiful


 

To begin using watercolour card and Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens I created a background

Using the butterflies from the ‘live life now’ set I heat embossed them on top using dark blue glitter embossing powder.

Taking an A4 sheet of heat resistant acetate I also stamped and heat embossed the cracks in black  I coloured the centres and extended and highlighted the cracks using a posca white pen.

On a separate sheet of acetate the butterflies from the ‘your own kind of beautiful’ set where also heat embossed in black,coloured and on the reverse painted in white to make the colour stand out.

After the butterflies were cut out the background was edged using shaker tape. A couple of the butterflies were adhered to the background.

The top acetate panel was stuck on top and the rest of the butterflies placed, some half out and the rest free. A black frame was cut and placed on top along with the sentiment which had been embossed in white onto black card and cut out.

Hope you like the idea.
