Perfectly Created Chaos Challenge 3

Time for the third Perfectly Created Chaos Challenge, I was very lucky to have my card in first challenge chosen in the top three. I was away for the last/second challenge but I'm ready for the third. This time Dori is asking that we have three of something on our cards, this could be three of anything, buttons, ribbons, I've gone for flowers. I started with a piece of linen effect card which I sprayed with Dylusion sprays. When dry I used a stencil and some slightly darker ink and inked through onto the sprayed background. I then stamped the Tim Holtz butterfly onto some white card stack and coloured with some matching pro markers cutting it out when finished. The sentiment is from the same stamp set as the butterfly, I mounted this and the background onto some gold mirri card and then onto a matching 8x8 card base. Before finally placing the butterfly I added some gold leaves cut with a Tattered Lace die and also some flowers also cut and embossed using Tattered Lace dies, these I finished by blending some lighter ink onto the flowers and adding some gems to the centres.



Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

This is absolutely beautiful Sue. The gold looks so opulent against the torquoise and I love the way that your die cut ferns echo the pattern in the background. The butterfly is exquisitely coloured and makes the perfect focal point. Enjoy your weekend. Sandra X

Another stunning creation! I love the colors you used and that butterfly is gorgeous. I particularly like the pop of yellows behind the blues and aquas. Thank you once again for playing along at Perfectly Created Chaos! Hope to see you again soon.
