A Wing and a Prayer

Weeeeell. I had some crafty time today. Maybe it was Shakespeare with the kids that was so inspiring this afternoon? (More likely that my hubby has taken over doing dinner!!) but there was this little patch of crafty time that suddenly reared up and surprised me. 

The Moxie Fab World has a Movement Challenge at the moment. Cath has posted some scrumptious cards with designs that help your eye to move all over a card front.

I thought that I'd start with something that we associate with movement - like butterflies. 

Wing and a Prayer


The movement in this card is based on the sentiment. And those butterflies lead your eye, up, up, up and right off the card, where your mind's eye should keep the movement going.

Wing and Prayer Deet

Up, up, up, like a prayer.

The butterflies in the bottom left hand corner are negative die cuts, with a sheet of turquoise paper placed underneath them. The postive die cuts are placed on the top with their wings lifted and rhinestones studded down their bodies. The rest of the images are stamped.

Thanks for popping in AGAIN today ...

Now to give this poor blog a little rest :0)

This card is a visual movement of beauty Nerina! The effect of the positive and negative die cuts combined with the stamping captures the eye terrifically!
