Lovin the swirls! :)
It's hard work, but I love the end result. They just look so beautiful. This card was made for the same person, my mom's colleague. He wanted it for someones birthday.
I discovered making swirls recently so I had to make one card specially based on swirls.
The card was looking quite empty, I drew a butterfly, coloured it up with the same colour pencil (I really wanted this colour to be the MAIN colour of the card). Enhanced it with some shading, embossing paste and glitter. One more empty space filled! LOL. I have been trying to get my hands on this sea-green colour but no luck at all. Just when I gave up any hope of getting this colour paper, I discovered I had a colour pencil just the same shade I wanted! So the light green parts you see in the card are coloured by a colouring pencil :)
Okay so this is no punched scallop shape or whatever you guys call it. This one is made using a compass. I individually drew semi circles and then cut this shape up. This is why a couple of them are a little different from the rest, and obviously the edges are not as neat as you get when you use punches. I wanted to write happy birthday in the circle but it was not appealing to me, so I made a flower and loved how it started looking. I did one more thing...
Inside the card I added this little print out. Coloured it up and did my thing with it, the colouring, glittering, faux stitching etc. Added a frame kinda thingy, just to liven it up a bit.
