More than Two Folds at Dragons Lair Designs...

Happy March everyone....my time of year where being MAD is normal...

The challenge for the month is 'More than Two Folds' over at the Dragons Lair Designs blog...
this has actually become a rather special challenge for me.

I knew which papers I wanted to use...
...and I knew where my folds were going to come from but I needed something extra to go with them.
This is where I went to the Queen of the Dragons herself and asked for a tea set, elegant, posh tea party type of thing. 
 Eee by gum she excelled herself, not one but two tea sets and everyone else realised they were something special as they fell over their feet to use them....

I suppose you would like to see the card now...

This is the closed card using paper folded wings for the butterflies and making their bodies with black gems and drawn in antennae.


Here is is open, showing the amazing tea set backed with a doiley with a sneaky extra couple of folds...


The tea set in close up....this digital stamp comes as either the complete TEA SET or individual tea pot and tea cup...this is the floral version, there is also an Art Nouveau version. 
I stamped the individual designs onto one of the Subtle Pastel papers and then coloured it with promarkers that matched the papers. I glazed it with Pinflair Glaze, I prefer to use clear nail varnish but I had run out (it doesn't darken the colours as much as the pinflair does)


Having done a couple of each stamp I then cut out them out and decoupaged them together and stuck them onto a doiley...


I had used panels of the papers on the card and then used a plainer paper to make the butterfly wings and finished them with the black gems and drawn antennae.

I really enjoyed making this and it would be great if you could pop over to the DRAGONS LAIR DESIGNS CHALLENGE BLOG and see what my fellow Design Team members have been up to.

Thank you so much for visiting, it brings a smile to my face, love and hugs until the next time. Sarah x
