Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a restful weekend!
Pinkfresh Studio January 2022 Challenge is a 2021 challenge review! You can pick one of your favorite challenges from the last year. All the challenge graphics are below. There is a pdf file linked on the Pinkfresh Studio Challenge page where you can see the graphics a bit easier. You have time to enter until February 1st.
I chose the August Challenge with the theme STRIPES. I picked the red, pink and orange from the color palette. But now I see my card could also fit for the December Challenge with the theme ALL THINGS HOLIDAY 🙂 !
For my card I used some items from the latest release and matched them with some of my favorite items from previous releases.
To begin I hot foiled the gorgeous Butterfly in berry using the Butterflies Hot Foil Plate and stenciled it using the layering stencil set in Sweet Mustard, Apricot, Coral Reef and Candy Apple. I made the tip and base of the wings darker with Candy Apple to give them an ombre look. After stenciling was done I cut it with the coordinating die and set it aside.
For the background I used a piece of hot foiled panel that was left after I made a card for a previous post. It was also hot foiled in berry using Diagonal Stripes Hot Foil plate. I adhered it on the bottom of a white cardbase. The front panel was cut with the Sparkling Diamonds die and one of the border die from Classic Edgers set. I foam mounted it and added some branches of white die cut Curvy Foliage to it where I wanted to place the butterfly.
The butterfly was then added with some foam tape on the white front panel. The sentiment is one of the gold hot foiled sentiments from Perfect Sentiments Holiday set.
To finish off I covered the body of the butterfly with Crystal Stickles and scattered some Glacier Jewels.
Hope I was able to inspire you with my card and you’ll play along!
