live love laugh

Challenges:

'Freestyle (anything you like)': A Spoon Full of Sugar.

'Butterflies': Quixotic Challenges.

'Flowers': Cute Card Thursday.

'Summer in winter': Dutch Dare.

'A butterfly, a flower and a die-cut': Stampin' B's Design Team. (I have assumed my acrylic cover is a die-cut.)
                  
I have made a chipboard front and back cover and also added a thick acrylic cover. You can see the effect better in this photo:
                                    
I have applied an orange butterfly and white scroll rub-on to the front cover. The 'live love laugh' is also a rub-on applied to the inner chipboard cover.

Papers and rub-ons: Little Yellow Bicycle ~ Delightful Collection.
                          
It might seem quite plain but I didn't want to cover those beautiful papers up. I've rounded the edges with my round-it-all.

Image: Magnolia ~ Tilda as Butterfly, coloured with copics and stickles added.

I created her antennae with beading wire and just stuck them to the back of the image. It seemed a much more neater effect than cutting round the card antennae.

You can't see them on the other side of the acrylic either, as I stamped the image onto another piece of cardstock, which I cut out and stuck down on the other side of the acrylic. You can just see a glimpse of this in the 4th photo above.

Thank you for looking.

This isn't plain at all. It's really beautiful. The acrylic looks great and doesn't imterfere with the lovely bp at all.
