Canto di primavera

Al Butterfly Challenge #72 il tema è "piercing" e/o "color felce". Il piercing mi ha ispirato. Per bucherellare i due pannelli (quello frontale bianco della card e quello viola -un avanzo di carta scrap, non ricordo il brand-) ho usato una matrice da ricamo. Semplice e veloce. Il tool per il piercing è uno dei miei "non posso farne a meno"... Lo uso per fare tantissime cose, dalla rimozione dei pezzetti di carta rimasti nelle fustelle ad arrotolare i petali dei fiori..!
Il timbro di Crafty Individuals (CI 357) era nel mio stash già da un bel po' di tempo, ma non lo avevo ancora usato. Lo adoro! L'ho stampato in blu e colorato con gli alcohol markers. L'ho ritagliato e l'ho montato con il biadesivo spessorato su un pezzo di carta patterned brand "La stamperia" che tempo fa avevo tagliato con la fustella Sweet Dixies Scroll Edge.
La margherita 3D è fatta con la fustella Sizzix Sizzlits Accordion Flowers set; le foglie le ho tagliate con la fustella Creative Expression (Sue Wilson) Faux Quilled Leaves, mentre la farfallina e i due fiorellini in alto li ho fatti con due punch. Il banner in basso è tagliato da un piccolo avanzo di carta con la fustella Creative Expression Pierced Flags. Il sentiment è Crafty Individuals (CI 449).
Ho attaccato tutto con il biadesivo spessorato sul pannello viola e poi su quello bianco.
Tutti i pezzi sono stati sfumati con i Distress Inks.

Con questo progetto intendo partecipare ai seguenti challenge:

My internet is playing up again and I think I have lost my comment so will try again. Your card is absolutely beautiful. I love your pin piercing and the layers are superb. Love your 3d flower to match the stamped flowers and the images are all lovely. Thankyou for fluttering by my challenge. Hugs Mrs A.

I tend to use only black for line stamping. I see I could be more adventurous in choice of ink. The stamped blue gives a totally different impression than black would have given. It adds to the rustic look of this design. The piercing is also a decorative touch which is very effective. It's beautifully designed with some really clever choices.

I really like the way you blended these pastel colors together and the piercing looks great! It's like a breath of spring with that pretty bluebird and yellow flower - both are signs of warmer weather coming! Pretty card my friend :)

Wonderful! Your piercing looks perfect and the stamping is fantastic. What a lovely stamp in the blue ink. Great choice of papers, die cuts and punched butterflies. The flower is a really pretty finishing touch. Debra x

This is so beautiful Alice!! I am in love with the colour palette you used, so bright and cheery with all the light pastels!! I can't believe your pierced all the panels by hand, what a lot of work to do that. Well it was worth it, how wonderful and professional it looks! The fancy die cut frame is delightful and I love the vibrant yellow flower too! So gorgeous!!

Yay for snow. I had a lovely play day outside on Sunday and took lots of pics before the snow melted away. I hope you had a great weekend and I send you wishes for a Happy Valentine's Day!

Just love this wonderful blue spring bird. The scrollwork of the die is so intricate, and looks great with the dimension of the daisies. And of course your piercing is so evenly & beautifully done. What a great card for Mrs. A's Butterfly challenge! TFS &Hugs

Non appena ho aperto il post ho avuto subito una sensazione di freschezza e leggerezza... forse proprio per rinforzare il sentiment.
Complimenti, bella anche la struttura.

WOW!!! Super cute card, my friend. And bursting with spring joy. It's not very spring like here today. Hailstorm, ice and temperature of 3ºC! Your card has made me smile.
