Eclectic Ellapu Challenge #35 - Recipe, 1 Image, 2 Embellishments, 3 Papers, 2 Die-cuts

Hello Crafters!

It's time for another challenge at Eclectic Ellapu and Andria is heading up the challenge this time. She has chosen a recipe for you to follow. This was a fun one for me as I tried a new product. Well, I have actually had it around a while and decided it was time to use it. It's called Honey-Pop from Inky Antics. It's really fun to use. I chose to use it in a non-traditional way and make a flower.
 There are clear stamp sets to use in making several different types of flowers and images but today I used a scrap left over from making another project. The paper is like a honeycomb which I stretched out then flattened out after cutting my shape. Then I joined the two ends and formed a circle similar in the way you would do an accordion flower. I then layered this onto the die-cut flower (SU) and topped with a large cloth covered brad from my stash. The leaves of the flower are from a Tim Holtz wings die. The butterfly image (SU) was stamped and punched out and popped up on foam tape. The sentiment was stamped and punched out with a new bundle set from Stampin Up and popped up as well. My papers are from a K & Co. book I got last year as a gift. The background is one piece and the strips are from another piece to which I added a yellow card stock strip. All of this is layered on Bashful Blue card stock.

Elements in my recipe:
1 Image: butterfly (stamped)
2 Embellishments: cloth covered brad, sentiment
3 papers: background, strips, purple flower
2 Die-cuts: white flower, leaves

  4. Trisha, this card is a beauty. I love the soft palette and that gorgeous flower you created with the honeypop. Very inventive and such a pretty result. Clever use of the wings die and that beautiful brad. Well done!
