Mirror, Mirror - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Happy Friday!

Sharon set the challenge this week and asked for something reflective on our cards.  I chose both foiling on the butterfly using the Stix 2 iron and foil sheets plus the addition of blue mirri card for the feathers.

I usually do anything that creates mess outside.  It's so much safer that way, but it was raining and I thought to myself 'how much mess can a little paint spatter make?'.  Wrong.  Even though I had partially covered stuff I obviously didn't do a good enough job.  Next time I'll use a box as was suggested to me - a little too late!


Dovecraft have a fantastic new range of stamps and this one is an absolute favourite of mine.  I love the sentiment.  I can relate it to so many of my friends so this year they'll all be getting a card with the same sentiment!

I hope you'll join in the challenge this week and look at the stunning creations by my fellow DT members HERE.

Have a great weekend!

  7. And I thought I was the only one with the "Spatter" issue ;) ;) Hope the box trick works for you

    I adore the crisp blue and white palette, it looks so fresh and gorgeous. I bet it looks really stunning in real life when the foiling catches the light
