This past Monday, the latest release of Crafty Meraki came out. For this reason, today I want to introduce you to one of the artworks that I just made using one of the newest products available on the site. We are talking about the "Emperor Wings" die cut. This is a layered die cut that goes wonderfully with flowers from older lines.
As you may already know, I'm a huge fan of stamps, so also in this inspiration I decided to mix a bit of novelty with older collations. This time I reached for flower stamps from the "Tou the Tropics" and "Birds of Paradise" sets.
I colored the stamps, as always, using alcohol markers and added some accents with white gel pen.
The butterfly from the latest release I decided to die-cut from beautiful holographic paper and the wing base from vellum. In this case, I skipped the middle layer of die-cuts, because I wanted the openwork pattern on the wings to be clearly visible. I arranged the whole composition on a rainbow base. I created it by cutting papers of different colors into thin strips, and then glued these strips onto the previously prepared paper of the size of the card I was going to create. For this purpose I used double-sided tape.
On the wings of the butterfly I also added a few elements with white gel pen, and finally decorated the whole composition with "Lavender Luster Opal" gems.
I hope you like my inspiration and it will inspire you to create more cards.
Have a nice day :)
