Inkspirational Challenge 29 CASE

Firstly, let me apologise that this photo is a bit shadowy. I thought I'd  take it again in better light but when I went to get it from where I'd left it (lying around in the spare room) someone had touched it with dirty fingers! I think it's time to get some of those cello bags and actually put things away safely.

Anyway , this is my DT project for Inkspirational Challenges and this week we have a CASE for you and here it is:
The original is by Ellen Parker  the co-owner of  Inkspirational Challenges.

For me, this is quite representational of the gorgeous cards that Ellen makes and I wanted to steal some of her style on my card, although it's quite a different look for me.

I used a butterfly digi by this month's sponsors , A Day for Daisies and I inked it, layered it twice and added glossy black enamel to the body and gold glitter to the edges of the wings. The doily was cut on the Silhouette Cameo. Both sentiments are stamps by Papermania (I think) .

Come and join us at Inkspirational Challenges!

Oh this is lovely Marina. A real vintage feel about it. That doily is super. I too had messed up cards so invested in some cellophane bags and it makes a world of difference! Michelle x

You've made a lovely version of Ellen's card. The butterfly looks beautiful against the die cut doily. Classy and elegant!
