It's all in the shape!


Daring Cardmakers latest challenge is for shaped cards. Here's mine. I cut apertures and behind them placed some scallop shaped pieces of glossy card coloured with alcohol inks. On the front of the card I stamped in violet using my trusty serpentine stamp from Art Impressions, and then chalked in pink and purple. I decorated the butterfly with Stickles glitter glue in magenta and various peel-offs. Thr geeting was covered with a vellum scallop to go with the muted colours.
