She told him..."Just Because"

For today's post, I'm trying a new subdued color palette of brown and black. The reason is........just because. I used Tim Holtz Craft Resist Paper Stash as my inspiration and added  rhinestone flourishes, all this I found at the Flying Unicorn store. They have so many different types of supplies and kits in this fabulous store, you should check it out. There is also a Flying Unicorn group with swaps, challenges , interesting groups and lots of supportive artists friends. You can meet the other marvelous artists of the Creative Team that I am a member of too.

To begin this card I first cut out the female image and butterflies and colored them with pencils and paint. I created the netting skirt and added butterflies. On the butterflies I applied Sprinkles and Black rhinestones. This, the multi black rhinestone flourises and the tiny rossettes with crystal accents were glued to the background paper. I ink kissed the edges of the card with black ink. Finally,  I stamped the hidden sentiment "just because".

Hope you will be happy this week, just because.
artfully yours, gerri
