CAS butterfly week at The Paper Players!

Hi there!

I love to bring you my weekly inspiration for The paper players... I especially love it when it's a CAS week. Add a butterfly to the recipe, and you will know I had so much fun making this card!


                                                           

Here it is  !


CAS butterfly card

A closer look :

CAS butterfly card


I used inspiration from a couple of other challenges:

Freshly made sketches  ~ Lay out

Color throwdown ~ blue * green * yellow

Less is more  ~ 3 stamps (3 individual stamps)



                          We'd love you to display our banner



The stamps I used on my card are:

1) Sentiment stamp from Casual Fridays set called BREATHE.
2) Paint brush stroke on the card base, also from above mentioned set.
3) Background stamp from PRIMA MARKETING called broken glass for the butterfly.

The butterfly was cut with my Silhouette, stamped with white colorbox ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I then used the smooshing technique with my Zig markers to add color.
The blue and green were stamped with Hero ARTS Shadow inks in Green hills and Cornflower.

That's it!

Hope to see you play along with us at The Paper Players!

Thanks for visiting me today!
Hannelie

Oh. My. GOODNESS!!! Love absolutely everything about this card, but especially the unique embossing idea on the butterfly. I'm now looking around my stamps supplies to see if I have anything that will allow me to replicate this.

TK said...

Perfection! I love the bold blue background swoosh, the pretty butterfly and then that almost graphic coloration on her!

Ooooh, this is gorgeous! Love the smooshing technique on the butterfly and the colors are perfectly balanced!

Petra Swart said...

Oooo, ek begeer 'n brushstroke stamp en hierdie een van jou is besonder mooi, vrou (dit lyk vir my na een wat jy twee keer gestamp het; regop en 'onderstebo') - die een of twee keer 'n jaar wat ek 'n paar goedjies kan bestel is daar altyd ander goed wat ek vat en die brushstrokes bly net op die wenslysie!!!!! Jou skoenlapper lyk ongelooflik mooi - wat 'n besonderse effek het jy nie verkry met die heat embossing en smooshing nie!!! Ek is mal oor jou sentiment in die groen - ek dink nooit daaraan om my sentiments in 'n ander kleur as swart te doen nie - ek gaan probeer onthou in die toekoms - hou my dop hoor - LOL!!!! Jou kaartjie is vir my in perfekte balans met net 'n klein ietsie meer white space aan die onderkant as bo!!!!! En jou enamel dots lyk verskriklik mooi - is dit nie altyd lekker om jou laaste afrondingkies met die dots of rhinestones te doen en te sien hoe dit die hele voorkoms van 'n kaartjie kan maak nie, ne!!!! Jy het jou kleure wonderlik gebruik!!!! Dit is 'n absolute lieflike skepping hierdie, vrou - ek is MAL daaroor!!!! Perfek met jou wonderlike stempel daarop!!!!! Ek bly teruggaan om weer te kyk!!!
Groete
