This project was inspired by the great theme at Allsorts this week-'Saving Nature'-using all the scrap bits and random things not even meant for card making that would probably end up in the bin-what a waste! I cant bear throwing away such pretty papers which was handy for this challenge! I also used buttons that aren't intended for card making but I came across and fell in love with!
I used mostly scraps of My minds eye papers, and organised them in strips, then added further borders on the far right hand side to frame the gorjuss girl image :-) I stamped her in memento and coloured her in promarkers. I inked the edge of the nesties shape shes sitting on with a Tim Holtz ink pad then started with the embellishments. For this card I used star mother of pearl buttons along the bottom border, a 3d butterfly by papermania at the top right hand corner, with pearl embellishments to show its fluttering journey and lastly a flower I made out of my paper petals. I echoed the colour of her dress in the largest petal, then added a red and orange petal and a gold gem to echo the colours in the paper. I love these bold colours, I think they really suit the gorjuss girl image!
