RIC #63 , Fusion & Virginia's View

Hi there!

Happy 4th of July to my US friends!

Just an ordinary Friday on this side of the globe ;)

I have a card to share... inspired by 3 challenges:

Runway inspired (photo inspiration)

&

Fusion card challenge (sketch)

&

Virginias view challenge (die cuts)

I was struggling to come up with an idea for a card using the inspiration picture from the RIC, when the Fusion card challenge post popped up in my reader... providing the perfect inspiration!





I printed a  floral background on vellum and placed the black triangle element  beneath the vellum for a softer contrast.

Thanks so much for visiting me today!

Pragtig, vrou!!!! So 'n lieflike lente gevoel aan jou kaartjie en 'n puik interpretasie van die foto!!! Mal oor die effek van die swart onder die vellum. En wat 'n pragtige variasie is dit nie op daai stunning skoenlapper van jou nie!!! Die swart rand doen absoluut die ding vir die helder blomme en die skoenlapper!!! Puik stukkie werk!!!

Groete en 'n heerlike naweek!!!

Wow, Hannelie ... your floral vellum is stunning, a perfect background for the delicate butterfly! I was wondering how you did the darker triangle ... so clever overlaying the vellum to soften it! Anita :)

The flowers look great on the vellum!I have seen more cards that combine the first two challenges and think yours is great! I haven't had a good idea for that one...
