A Child's Year for BBTB2

There has been a big change over on BBTB - Regina is very busy with The Cutting Cafe and has given up her role as team leader, but luckily, Heather stepped in, so the site continues, under a slightly changed name - Bitten By The Bug 2, the design team is unchanged, so we will be carrying on as before, and Regina will still be joining in with the challenges when she can............


This week, we were asked to use the little girl and boy with flowers behind their backs from A Child's Year. I always find that even though they are quite detailed cuts, that these little silhouettes look better cut small - about 2.5", so they are perfect for mounting onto an oval to look like an old fashioned silhouette picture. See the fabulous stuff the rest of the DT have done over on the site





I cut the figures twice, and mounted the top layer with silicone glue for dimension

The paper flowers were inked, and I used some purple rain drops in the centres


Cricut and A Child's Year cartridge

Paper flowers - Michaels Bridal Aisle (white) and Prima (purple)

Sentiment - Hero Arts

Border punch - Cornice by Martha Stewart
TIP
If you have a little group of flowers, try putting a larger gem in the lowest, and graduate the gems to a small one, as shown, it gives depth and dimension to your project

  12. Beautiful card! I always love black and white cards! And the purple is an unexpected dash of color. People (myself included) often go for red with black and white. The purple is a great choice. TFS

  16. Beautiful card. I have always loved silhouettes and you have used my favorit color and it all looks lovely and reminds me of the 40's, oops did I really say that. Hopefully on Friday we may get back into the 70's, last night was cold enough to worry about freezing water pipes. Where is it that I live again?
