Camp it up and have a Fabulous Day


Here's my monday mojo inspired card though if you look at the sketch you'll find I've played a little fast and loose with the overall design. However, all the elements are there just tweaked sizes and positioning - haha okay okay, that's nearly everything then. I began by wanting to use my "Fabulous" stamp by Heidi Swapp. I absolutely love it (see what I did there) but don't use it nearly enough as it warrants. I embossed it using gunpowder then sat back to ponder what I could match with all the grey going on. And yup, I opted yet again for purples. I matted dark with light colours and vice versa to keep contrast. The ribbon I bought months ago at The Bead Shop in Liverpool. Loved how dramatic it looked but haven't found the right project to introduce it until now. The butterfly is made from one of spellbinders dies and a scrap of patterned paper. Oh yes and you may recognise the cuttlebug embossing from a previous card I made last week.
