Trishutter card

This time I tried my hands on a trishutter card. With this, I wanted to shoot 3 birds with an arrow.. This card was created for Tejal's embossing challenge, Anita's rose challenge and for my sister in law's birthday.
Here it goes  -
The flourishes are hand drawn, outlined with green gel pen and the clear embossed. So are the sentiments. The butterflies are digital images coloured using colour pencils and then clear embossed to give a glossy finish.
I learned embossing from Tejal's tutorial.
The roses are made by following Anita's tutorial.
Special thanks to Anita and Tejal for the wonderful tutorials and information.
I am also submitting this card at following other challenges  -

My Scrappy Scrap Challenge card!

Hey All,
This time I have a new card for the Scrappy Scrap challenge. For this challenge, Shalini had sent us few scraps and this is what I had received -

And this is what I made -
It's a Easel card with a color changing butterfly. Here's a video to view the changing colours.-
It's the first time I experimented with acetate sheet and as soon as I saw the jute flower, I thought of making Easel card. We were not supposed to use anything else other than the scraps, cardstock, single stamp,punches (only on card stock or scraps), adhesives and paints/writing material.  So, for rotating the wheel, I used a paper made brad. I will soon post a tutorial on this.

I hope you like this card :)
Warm Regards,
Piyu
