Aqua and Lilac Dance
I began by colouring my favourite Lilli of the Valley stamp with duck egg and a pale purple promarker (sorry cant remember which one!) I blended the colours because I love how they compliment one another.
I started the card layout by cutting three circles with my Cuttlebug and nestibilities-one Large circle out of aqua glitter paper, one large scalloped circle out of lilac Coredinations and another large scalloped circle out of dark purple pearlescent card, which I then layered to look like a flower. I then looked through my paper stash and found the Aqua and Purple Capsule collection range suited it so well so chose the same paper from each stack to start with.
I cut it to fit my card blank, and then used faux stitching I made with a purple pen around the edges. Next I attached the circles and my image with it and placed the butterfly dancing along with the ballerina with his path highlighted with Aqua Capsule collection gems. I stamped a greeting and used the same faux stitching around the edges and placed a lilac ribbon on the top.
Next I added the gems on wire, also the lilac and blue paper roses in the top corner of the scalloped circles.
Lastly I added the satin and pearls flower in the bottom left hand corner.
