I started with my tag in the shape of a butterfly and put it onto a card. My picture is of the finished project.
I saw this dress on the Emmy's last night and I thought it was absolutely stunning because it was black and faded into greys and shades of black. (Of course on the shows where they reviewed the clothes they hated it! LOL! Oh. well.. I won't be going to any red carpet events) The dress was the inspiration for my Midnight butterflies! I don't want you to adjust your monitor. I couldn't believe how my picture turned out... I kept adjusting it in my editing software to get the hues to show up.
You can see the faintest hint of color on the flourish as that is actually a silver piece of shiny cardstock. I think the camera must have done something to translate this into a black and white photo. :) Here is a second shot that tells me that it is just the fact that I used all the shades of silver, black and grey.
See the little bit of blue in the reflection? That is from something on my desk in front of the shadow box reflecting on the flourish. All I can say is this is much prettier IRL you can see all the shades and hues of the black and white.
Thanks for stopping by!
