I am participating in a swap this month where the theme was Monochromatic (plus neutral) and bling. It ended up being a really good Get To Know Your Cartridge kind of exercise. I used Florals Embellished and relied heavily upon my Creative Features keys. I love this cartridge, but let's face it - the images are extremely detailed and to make a large quantity of these cards would have taken forever had I done all the layering and piecing. So I decided to use the "shift" key with the Phrase feature to create a simplified butterfly, and then matted using the Silhouette Blackout and Shadow keys. Here is what I made:
Stamp: My Pink Stamper Spectacular Sayings Cricut Cartridge: Florals Embellished Edge Punch: Martha Stewart Paper: AC Cardstock, Colorbok Rose Stripe Embellishments: white organdy ribbon (3/8"), white pearl (Recollections), Stickles
If life is art, then the art of my life would be filled with my family, faith, good food, and beautiful music. I believe that everyone needs to have a creative outlet, and my medium of choice is paper!
