It's over a year
This one started out with an idea that i would make a card and envelope combined so that the folder would be opened up and the image would be part of it. it seemed like a good idea at the time but my mother-in-law, who this is for, loves verses and where would I put it? so the topper was added to an 8x8 square card and the folder has become a rather nice container for the card.
The background of the topper is stamped with flitter glue using an indigoblu poppies stamps and gilding flakes have been applied. the background is pan pastels but i sprayed it with a gold glimmer mist to set it and add a bit of a shine.
The butterflies have been cut out on my grand caliber and i used the darker pan pastels to colour them and again sprayed them with glimmer mist.
I hope she likes it.
