This time I'm using the set to meet two challenges. One is for the Friday Mashup and the other for Pals Paper Arts. The challenges are perfect for each other since one is a colour challenge which just makes it so much easier to do the other. One less thing to fret about.
This card would be classes under CAS (clean and simple) if not for the embellishments. I've stamped the flower on a piece of Whisper White using Soft Suede ink and then, using a cut out of the flower, masked it and stamped the grid background over it, this time using Watermelon Wonder ink. Becuase the Friday Mashup challenge is for an ombre effect, I first stamped off some of the Watermelon Wonder ink in three stages, leaving less and less ink on the stamp. As you can see, the finished effect is definitely an ombre.
I coloured the flower using So Saffron ink and my Aqua Painter. The two little butterflies which I stamped using Soft Suede and cut using the matching punch are also coloured using So Saffron and Watermelon Wonder, but this time I used my Stampin' Markers.
I finished up my "cluster of embellishments" with pearls down the centres of both butterflies. By the way, do you feel as if you're seeing double with those butterflies? Well, that would be the Soft Suede solid butterflies which I attached under the coloured ones.
