Hello! We have Jane Tyrrell here on the blog today with a fabulous card featuring our grungy butterfly stamps with an inspiring sentiment…
A fortnight has rolled round and it is time for my regular design team post for Visible Image. Wow there have been so many changes in these 2 weeks. Helen and Mark aka Mr and Mrs Visible Image have lots of ideas to keep us all entertained, engaged and creative in the weeks ahead and one lovely idea is the start of a new challenge. The theme of challenge #1 is such an apt one, “Brighten Someone’s Day”.
I managed to see my best friend for a long lunch just before this whole situation took hold and we both cherish those few hours and realise it may be quite some time before we see one another again. I decided to make my card to send to her.
I knew just the sentiments to use. This is such a great set:
My dearest friend loves her garden as much as I do so I also reached for the Wings of Change
Her favourite colour is pink so I made a very pink and girlie background. First I sprinkled on some Infusions and added some spritzes of water.
I then blended on some Distress oxide ink.
I also made some textured butterflies by stamping on some left over inky card, adding crackle accents and a sprinkle of glamour dust for texture and sparkle.
Once dry I cut them out minus the antennae.
I stamped the sentiment and butterflies on the background and then stuck the butterflies on top raising the edge of their wings with foam pads.
Then it was time to put my card together. Here it is;
and one last shot;
There is also a special Mindfulness section
on the Visible Image website at the moment which has 30% off, just perfect for crafters who are sending out cards to help raise people’s spirits at this time. Visible Image is a small husband and wife team who are still shipping here in the UK and abroad for as long as they are able to .
And yes my dear best friend received this card last week and told me that it did lift her spirits which was my very intention. I feel empowered by my crafting that during these uncertain times that I can give a tiny moment of positivity to someone’s day.
I do hope you might join us over on FB with this challenge. Perhaps you could then send what you have made to someone you care for and cannot see in person for now?
Stay safe and stay creative.
