The New Theme/ Colour
for my Butterfly Challenge is
Verb: Texture = give (a surface) a rough or raised texture.
Here is my inspiration for you.
I started with a blank canvas paint flat block and using various SU ink pads and sponge pads created the coloured background. The butterflies were made using an imagination Crafts stencil 'Butterfly Flight' and Imagination Sparkle Medium in Blue Sapphire which matched my Teal paint chip perfectly. The words are preprinted on strips and come white on black or black on white and were in my stash. I then sat and looked at it for two days as it just looked plain and too CAS for my liking.
After a play around with various bits and bobs this is the finished result.
I found the two tone twisted ribbon in my ribbon stash and added that to the edges but I still felt it needed just that little something extra but what? Then my eyes lighted on some hessian threads (yep I do keep everything) in a tray on my desk and after twisting them together laid them on top of the ribbon. The resulting coarseness of the threads works well against the ribbon and continues the rough texture theme. The Glass Cabochons were destined to go at the end of each word but I had placed them on the background whilst adding the ds tape and decided they looked good so there they stayed.
Hope I have inspired you to join in the fun.
