Birthday Butterfly

****************

I tried to get a textured look using this stencil and tried various mediums - acrylic paint for one - but ended up using white embossing powder which looks very unwhite lol.
The result is OK but I have now ordered some proper texture paste :)
I sponged Spun Sugar DI over part of the 'design' and splattered some over the rest using a toothbrush.

I think the finished card is quite pleasing.


The butterfly is embossed with texture EF is also coloured with spun sugar DI,  and then spritzed with glimmer mist.
I added some small pearls to the little flowers on the memory box lavish branch die cut and simply finished with random pink and white pearls and the greeting banner.

Hi Irene,

Such a pretty card with so much texture and dimension. As you experienced it can be challenging experiencing a textured background but you have done a great job, good luck with the texture paste.

Thanks so much for entering your card at Anything goes, just keep on creating. I hope you will continue to share your work and thanks for your welcome back comment as well :)

Another beautiful card Irene.
That subtle colour palette is just gorgeous, so feminine and I like the creamy look better than white I think.
The design looks really good, very 'arty' and the pearls are the perfect finishing touch.
Hope you are keeping well sweetie?
