Just because...

Hi there!

Happy Tuesday to you ( mine's almost over ! ;)

I want to show you a card I made inspired by a few challenges :


The paper players ~ Colors

Virginias view challenge ~ Embossing

Retro sketches ~ Sketch





After cutting the butterfly with my Silhouette, I used the same stamp as I used in This card to stamp the butterfly, heat embossed it, and added watercolor paint. I also added a little wink a stella, which is difficult to see in the photo.

I die cut 2 loopy borders ( My favorite things) and placed it to overlap each other for the vertical panel ... to add a faux embossing touch!

A sentiment from a Casual Friday stamp set (Loving thoughts) and enamel dots to complete the design.

Thanks so much for visiting me today!

Really lovely card. That butterfly is amazing! All in soft and gentle colors, with it's 'crackly' wings. The kraft is perfect for a backdrop -- it really makes your butterfly stand out. Really pretty! Bev

Joe, daai skoenlapper lyk pragtig, vrou, maar wat vir my uitstaan is hoe jy die loops so opmekaar gesit het om 'n lieflike effek te skep!!! Alles lyk so pragtig op die kraft basis en ek hou veral van die wit sentiment!!! Baie goeie gebruik van die kleure en die skets, met die embossing ook daarby, vir die drie challenges vrou!!!
Groete

The tone on tone look of the die cut against the card base is really effective and that butterfly is gorgeous!

Hannelie, again that stamp, it's wonderful one, like a mosaic. But what I love most about this card, it's soft spring colors with craft, perfect combination!

Geri said...

Oh my - so very pretty! The butterfly is gorgeous, fabulous 'crackle' effect! Perfect pairing with a subtle faux embossed element and kraft paper!
