Ispirazione per il Butterfly Challenge#59: Pink and Punch

Siccome ho vinto al Butterfly Challenge #55, sono Guest Design per il Butterfly Challenge#59 (Grazie a Mrs. A. per l'opportunità!!)
Ho scelto la lettera P. e Mrs A. mi ha dato il tema e il colore corrispondenti: P sta per Punch e/o Pink (+ farfalle, ovviamente!). Ecco la mia card:
Eccettuati i due layers della base, tutto il resto è realizzato con avanzi di carta e un pezzo di coperchio delle teglie di alluminio :D
Lo sfondo azzurro/viola sfumato è uno dei tanti fogli bianchi per fotocopie con cui copro il tavolo quando coloro qualche forma con i Distress Ink.  :D
Questo mi era piaciuto particolarmente e ve lo avevo già mostrato qui 
http://volidicarta.blogspot.it/2016/02/amore-e-far-volare-un-aquilone.html
L'ho incollato su un cartoncino di recupero per dargli un maggior spessore, senza aggiungere altro.
Per l'albero ho usato la fustella Couture Creation- Secret Garden Collection- Large Winter Tree e ho embossato il tronco, prima con l'embossing folder Textured Impression Woodgrain#3 e poi a caldo con una polvere da embossing color rame, per evidenziare la texture.
I fiori sono tagliati con due punches e carta bianca, colorata con i Distress Ink nelle tonalità del rosa. Notare che i fiori più piccoli sono fatti con il negativo di un punch per bordi :D
Li ho incollati con una colla a penna; mi sono aiutata con uno stecchino, che ho premuto su un pezzetto di biadesivo per renderlo un po' appiccicoso, in modo da poter agevolmente prendere i fiorellini più piccoli e attaccarli in posizione.
Ho aggiunto Liquid Pearls al centro dei fiori
Il bordo color rosa antico, in basso, è uno dei miei coperchi delle teglie di alluminio tagliato con una fustella Sizzix Thinlits e colorato con gli alcohol inks. In foto purtroppo non si vede bene il luccichio metallico.
L'uccellino sul ricciolo nell'angolo è tagliato con una fustella Crafty Individuals (Victoria Corner), colorato con i Distress Inks.
Le farfalle sono tagliate con un grande punch, in due strati, da avanzi di carta scrap.
Il bordo in alto è tagliato da un avanzo di carta scrap, con lo stesso punch che mi è servito per fare i fiorellini piccoli.
Non ho messo sentiment, per il momento: lo farò quando avrò deciso la destinazione della card! :D
Con questo progetto intendo partecipare ai seguenti challenge:

  8. Hello, Alice! All I can say is... STUNNING! First of all, congratulations on your win and on your Guest Feature over at Mrs. A's challenge! You certainly made a beautiful card for this theme! This is absolutely gorgeous! I love how you detailed each step that went into making it. I LOVE the idea of using the woodgrain embossing for the tree - I will be using this tip the next time I use a tree (I hope I remember!) - and the bronze - it really looks like a tree trunk! I am also very impressed with your background, which you recycled from your ink blending - brilliant! And so pretty! And then you painstakingly inked, punched, and adhered all of the tiny flowers - so well worth your time and effort - the tree puts on a show! The butterflies are so pretty and are perfect for this scene! Amazing card, my friend!

  10. Congratulations on your GDT spot, well deserved.
    Absolutely beautiful Alice! I love the texture you've achieved with the copper embossing powder on the tree trunk and the many shades of pink flowers make the tree really come to life. Gorgeous details like the bird and butterflies just add to the beauty of your card. Who ever receives this is one very lucky person. Love it. Debra x

  11. Absolutely beautiful Alice. LOVE the tree!! I did one similar a couple of years back using punched flowers but yours is way more lovely than mine!

    And of course it's fine for Aurora to have her own entry - you made that clear in the blog post with her Brushos work so she will also be in the prize draw as well as you.

    Hugs

  13. Congratulations on your GD at the Butterfly Challenge. Love that you've used the scrap inked papers to make the lovely soft background for this gorgeous tree. It makes me think of the pink dogwoods that bloom in our area in the springtime. Good idea with the texture embossing on the trunk too. Great butterfly punches, and I think your rosy border shows just very nicely! TFS & Have a great wkend. Hugs & TFS
