Blossoms and work around them. Just a hint of mint green/blue was all I needed to offset the brightness of the yellow.
I die cut a piece of yellow paper from the 6x6 paper pack and adhered it to a piece of corrugated cardboard for the base of my frame. Then I used the BoBunny die with a piece of mint green paper and adhered the different layers onto my base frame. I used the middle die to cut my photo for a perfect match, and dropped it into the middle of my frame.
The butterfly is from the Noteworthy pack. I outlined the designs with Pearlescents in Buttercup, and added the jewels.I wanted it to resemble a cloisonne brooch. You can cover the piece with clear medium for shine. I chose to leave it flat for photography purposes. The jewels were adhered with the Gold Pearlescents.
I used the Brocade stencil on the background using molding paste. Once it dried, I used a color wash of Lindys Stamp Gang Magicals in Yellow Rose Of Texas and randomly brushed it on with a paintbrush over the masking. The leaves were die cut from a piece of paper from the Sweet life 6x6 paper pad.
The title was created with a couple of pieces from Noteworthy and I just layered them. I placed a small strip of corrugated cardboard underneath to lift it off of the page for dimension.
The leaves were die cut from the same patterned paper I used in the frame. The die was shipped to me all the way from France from my very sweet friend Pascale Bernard. I just love it!! Just a few vines tucked in here and there was all it needed for fill.
I hope you were inspired today to pull out something that makes you happy. We all need a little sunshine in our lives now and then!!
