This week at CAS Colours & Sketches it's a sketch designed by DT member Lizy. And a really super one too!
I've been having a great pash on butterflies recently and am totally smitten by Visible Image's range of butterflies. So I indulged myself with this card selecting a colour combo of purple mixed with a bit of turquoise and came up with this:
I used two colours of washi tape for the vertical strip, first putting down the turquoise and then overlaying it with purple. I'm loving how the turquoise peeps through.
The washi set my colours, but I jazzed up the butterflies with a generous layer of Wink of Stella and drew in their antennae, which got trimmed off when I hand cut the butterflies, with a thin sharpie pen.
Stamps: Visible Image, butterfly
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black
Colours: Promarkers, violet, cool aqua; Flexmarkers, cloud blue, cadet blue
Embellishments: turquoise & purple washi tape from my stash; Wink of Stella, clear; Sharpie pen, black
I'm poppng this card into the challenge at Addicted to CAS where the code word is Butterfly.
The Card Concept where the inspiration photo colours and butterflies are so pretty. I'm thinking maybe my style is clean and layered.
Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope you'll find time to visit all the other DT blogs, not forgetting our fabulous guest designer for June - Jan. They all have amazing cards to inspire you.
