I must admit to being very inspired by Cristina‘s card here where she used neutrals with black die cuts and a pop of colour. Thanks for the inspiration Cristina! For my card base I added the newspaper background from Hero Arts in wet cement ink before inking the edges with pumice stone Distress Ink. The main embellishment is similar to one I created for my Dirty Dozen gallery last month. I masked a circle on white card stock and applied ink directly to the paper before sewing around and around. Finally I die cut the circle out then added the butterfly coloured with distress inks and the sentiment.
This card turned out to be quite detailed and inky for me – not so much my CAS style but it’s always good to mix things up a bit!
I’m going to pop this over to Hero Arts April challenge gallery for their shaped card element. Until tomorrow :) Although tomorrow will be quite busy with my CASE study card and For Your Inspiration card as well.
Love the stitched circle element! Your butterfly is just gorgeous!
Beautiful card. I love the stitching behind your greeting.
Beyond stunning! Every bit of it is simply perfection.
I with you…I don’t have many dies either BUT we both have this one lol! Love the tiny card and yellow and gray is one of my favorite color combos :)
