Creative Artiste Challenge 5

The eagle eyed among my regular visitors may have noticed a new DT badge on my sidebar. Creative Artiste is a challenge blog for those who like to play with mixed media and I was thrilled when Rhonda approached me about being on her design team. 
We are being sponsored for Challenge 5 by Foil Play who are offering a £15 voucher for the UK winner and Di's Digi Stamps who have a $12 voucher for a second winner. 
Our theme this month is 
"Anything Goes with Butterflies and Flowers"


This is my first DT project for the team. It's an 8"x 8" card.
I created the background by clear stamping and heat embossing a flourish stamp on white card then applying Shabby Shutters DI. - In other words, resist stamping. - I dyed a strip of lace with red ink and fixed it across the front.

The butterfly started off as a piece of lace. I painted it with red acrylic paint and shaped it to dry in the butterfly shape. I covered the pearl string with gold frantage and sprinkled some on the butterfly too.

The roses were made by curling cream paper and then they were dipped in gold embossing powder. I die cut the leaves and stamped the sentiment.
I've managed a few different techniques on my card. I'm sure you recognise at least one of them that you use. So, as long as you use more than one media and make sure you have butterflies and flowers on your project we'd love to see you enter the challenge. 
Now please visit the Creative Artiste Challenge Blog to see the wonderful projects created by my talented team mates for more inspiration.  Remember to have fun.
