MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Sir Stampalot challeng - Blossoms and Butterflies

This is the first ever easel card I have made.... I have seen soooo many around blogland but put off making one myself but when I came across these gorgeous Basicgrey papers  in my stash I just new I had to use them to make one.  This months Sir Stampalot challenge with the theme Blossoms and Butterflies just screamed out to me to so here is my entry.

I used another chipboard frame like yesterdays... but this one is obviously a lot smaller and I left this one white, the texture of the white coating is so smooth it looks just as lovely without any inking i think.

I framed another lady image stamped from Crafty Individuals ladies collection onto Papermania paper and stamped some lovely cute butterflies also from Crafty Individuals to adorn my card.

The flowers were cut from sections of the background paper and layered up (am in 3d mode again...have you noticed... so sick of working on flat ...
 just wait to see what I've got in store for the next few weeks!!)

My most favourite part of the paper was this amazing red (my favourite colour...oooooooh) and pink flower.  It's just a gorgeous size and makes a statement just on it's own eh!!  I finished off with a sentiment stamp and another butterfly before edging the whole thing with.... wait for it............... rofl........ distress ink :D

Easels cards are fabbbbb, they look so complicated but they are so not and you get to play with 3D on a card which is fabulous.
You have made a brilliant and beautiful card Chris, love it!

Have you tried a side step card? (Google: side step card, there are loads of tutorials.)
They are really fun too, but harder to decorate pleasingly I think. (I can easily decorate it so it looks like crap!) From experimenting with them this week I think they are harder. But then I don't have much experience.
