I saw a challenge just the other evening that only had three and a half days to go... Not a lot of time for me but I couldn't resist with the colour scheme involved :)
So here's a quick, 'no ink' card that fits the bill for a few other challenges, too. I LOVE it when that happens... especially as I'm still quite new to 'blogland' and I'm eager to 'meet' new people, see their blogs/craft style... and hopefully learn from them along the way :)
When I choose to go for a 'no ink' design, I always try to make up for it with added dimension. I've seen people's swirly, circle 'nests' on their designs before now and contemplated that idea before deciding to settle on threading the raffia through the tag. If I'm honest, I wasn't quite sure how that would work out... much better than I'd envisioned, so 'yay' :)
...oh, and just a quick note... all three butterflies were punched from this pretty glitter paper. (That was definitely one of my better finds on eBay)... I only mention it as I'm not sure this photo shows the glitter on all three :)
Hero Arts/Frame Cuts 'Large Tag'
