AI: Love Step Card

by - January 28, 2013

Hi Peeps!!!

I am here today for another DT post with Artistic Inspirations! The current challenge is :CHALLENGE 26: Love/Anything Goes

Our Sponsors this time are:
Floppy latte
Floppy Lattee


The prizes up for grabs are voucher/5 digis from the sponsors and the Top-3 badges!!

For my project, I chose to color the image - "Flower fairy" from Smudgstastic!

Instead of making a regular card, i thought of trying one of the fancy fold cards!
And lo, here it is, my first attempt in creating a step card!

This is a three step card. The first step is adorned with green grass and "wooden" gate, both of which are hand-cut, adorned with a old red ribbon-bow and the sentiment - "Love you Forever"

For the second step, i have again paper pieced the grass,also drew the green colored grass and added the colored image! 
And the other flowers that are seen are the ones cut out from the actual image, re-sized and colored.

For the back step, i have again paper pieced the green hills , with colored grass and have added shiny metallic sequins as the flowers. I have colored the background with the yellow sun and blue sky. Have also added few butterflies.. with two of them flying with heart shaped path!

So here's my attempt in creating a love themed card amidst a picturesque background!

So Peeps do play along this challenge and yes, dont forget to visit the amazing works of the other DT members as well!

Linking the card to the below challenges:

Eagerly looking forward to know your feedback, that is sooooo very muchh appreciated!
Thanks for stopping by!
