Butterflies on Wall (CAS), Thanks, Female

I'm squeezing in a last minute entry today for a colour challenge over at
CAS Colours & Sketches.

Here's my quick make...




Using a piece of white Hammer Card for my base I've stamped off a 'Bo Bunny' Wall To Wall Textures Clear Stamp for the background, using Memento (Tsukineko) Rich Cocoa.

I've also used Memento (Tsukineko) Rich Cocoa for the Designer Butterfly Stamp (Hero Arts) and the Thanks sentiment.  I used a piece of plain white card to stamp the second butterfly onto as I like to include different textures - even in a CAS design.  Once the ink was dry, I simply fussy cut and glued into place.

One flower stamped in Memento (Tsukineko) Rose Bud and two stamped in Memento (Tsukineko) Teal Zeal, and the stamping was finished.  As you can see, I also stamped off for one of the Teal Zeal flowers.

All that was left to do was to mount on to a piece of brown card a little larger in size (I've used a Paper Distressing Tool on the edges for a smidge of extra texture), glue into place on a card blank and add three jewel embellishments as centres for the flowers.

Here are the details of the CAS Colours & Sketches current challenge...


It's my first time playing along here...

It's always nice to discover new challenges, don't you think?

'Bye for now.

Donna
