Pixies Crafty Workshop earlier this month and one of the things I bought with it was this set of Spellbinder Elegant Ovals dies.The one I have used here is the largest of the set, there are four altogether and each one has a different decorative edge. Having cut it from ivory card and with the die still in place I used tea dye DI and a duster brush to add some shading. I also over stamped it with an Inkylicious autumn verse stamp with the same ink, but as I stamped some of the ink off onto scrap paper you can't actually read it, but it just adds a little texture to the background which is really what I wanted. I stuck the butterflies over this and added some gold coloured gems and some brown Stickles glitter glue, this was then mounted onto brown glitter card. The orange patterned paper is from my stash and probably came in a pack from Chocolate Baroque when it was known as Elusive Images. The base card is a 15cm square, all the other elements are layered onto it with brown organza ribbon wrapped round under the glitter card and tied with a bow. I actually added a Thinking Of You sentiment to the top corner today because I decided to send it to someone in hospital.
