Flower Thoughts

Who loves recipes?  Of course we do at the Crafters Café (wouldn't be a café without recipes right?). There are three feature items (one flower, two butterflies and three patterned papers) and once you have those, your card is half made!  The design team have provided some inspiration so check it out here: crafterscafe

The Crafter's Cafe Challenge Blog

And our wonderful sponsor Bugaboo have provided this image:  bugaboostamps frame-it-thinking-of-you

I printed the image out three times - once on heavy cardstock, once on printer paper and once on patterned paper.  I used the printer paper image carefully cut out to make a positive and negative mask and sponged Distress Inks colour onto the cardstock.  The patterned paper is cut out, the dress is stuck on directly, and the flower with 3D foam.  The doily and paper layered, edges distressed and stuck with 3D foam tape on top-fold card.  Butterflies are punched, inked and stuck on using 3D foam.
