When I saw that the Butterfly Challenge #30 was Butterfly/ies + J is for Jagged edges (ie. torn papers, distressed edges using a distressing tool/scissors) my initial reaction was to wait and see what the theme was going to be next fortnight! However, not wanting to be beaten by a challenge theme, I went out of my comfort zone and tore some patterned paper. You cannot believe how difficult it was for me not to get out the scissors or guillotine and straighten the torn edges!!
I looked for some vintage style paper, as I thought it might look better with the torn edges. The paper I used is from a freebie paper pad that came with a magazine some time ago. I put a piece of honey coloured card in the gap, which picked out the colour of some of the butterflies in the patterned paper. The sentiment was stamped on the same plain card, which I die-cut..... Sorry Mrs A., I just couldn't bring myself to tear around the sentiment too! I had a snippet of the patterned paper left over, so I used this to punch out three butterflies, attaching them to the card by just the bodies to make the wings stand out. So, just a simple card today, despite it taking so long to decide how to make it. I'm still not sure about it, but as the Butterfly Challenge closes tomorrow, this will be my entry.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
