Butterfly Wings

Wow!  Where does the time go?!  It is time for another MoonFlower Designs project for me.  This one was inspired by a recent Make it Crafty challenge to enlarge and crop an image and make it the main focus of the card.  I didn't have time to play in the challenge, but I wanted to give it a try.

I thought Ashlee Butterfly Wings was a great image to use for this type of card.  I enlarged her and cropped just a little of the image for a panel for the front of the card.  Then I cropped her just a bit less and printed again to make the base of my card.  I kept the image on the base black and white and colored the image on the panel using Copics.  If you click the image, you can just see the layers.  I embossed a frame around the edge and kept the card CAS.  I used craft foam to pop up the panel to keep it stable.  I am pretty pleased with the way it turned out since I rarely do CAS cards.

You should join us in the MoonFlower group on Facebook.  It is a great place to get some amazing inspiration and sneak peeks of stamps to come.  Andreia has even been known to do a flash giveaway from time to time.  We even have a monthly challenge for a chance to win MoonFlower stamps.  There is a fan page freebie in the files section too, so be sure to check it out.

You can also get a freebie by signing up for the newsletter.  Each month Andreia draws a freebie exclusively for the newsletter.  It doesn't go into the shop until the next freebie comes out.  You can sign up by popping over to the website and entering your email address in the form at the bottom of the page.  Once you submit your email address, be sure to confirm your subscription using the link in the email you receive.  If you don't get the confirmation email, be sure to check your spam folder.  After confirmation, you will receive a link to the current freebie.  It's that easy and then each month on the 15th, you will receive the next gorgeous freebie!  Here is a sneak peek of the next one!

I can tell you that you definitely want to sign up for the email right now!!  You won't be disappointed!

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope to see you join us in the group and the challenge.

Artistic Inspirations has an Anything Goes challenge with a twist of magic.  Ashlee is going to think her thoughts over at that challenge.

Card Mania has a pastels challenge so Ashlee is going to show off her pastels in that challenge.

Crafting with Dragonflies has a Something Magical challenge so Ashlee is going to visit all of the magical creatures in that challenge.

Crafty Friends have a letter "b" challenge.  Ashlee decided since her butterfly wings and her banner begin with "b" she would like to play in the challenge.
