For this card I turned to the Annual Catalogue. There are so many wonderful products available in it but at the moment it is being eclipsed by the Occasions catalogue and Sale-a-bration. Time for a change. For my base I used the Heavy Whisper White and then added a layer of Basic Black. I wasn't certain whether I wanted my next layer to be a pattern or an embossed piece. And then I remembered the Neutrals Designer Series paper stack and knew that was the answer. I chose the pretty flower pattern in Black and White but before I attached the piece, I cut out the centre using my Deco Labels framelit. That left a nice black shape in the centre of the card for which I cut a white label using the smaller Deco Labels framelit.
For the white label I decided to stamp one of the sentiments from the Tin of Cards set using the Archival Basic Black ink. Once that was dry, I used my Aqua Painter to put a watercolour wash over the centre using Tempting Turquoise ink. To dress up the card I heat embossed three butterflies from the Papillon Potpourri set on Vellum cardstock with Gold embossing powder. I used my Stampin' Marker to add Tempting Turquoise to each butterfly.
