well welcome its time for a new Just Add Ink
challenge. This week we have a lovely colour combo for you. My thoughts on first sight were elegant and delicate. Here it is.
I broke out a bunch of new stamping goodies for this one. Some brank spanking new and others have been waiting for months - eek! to get used.
Side view of butterfly layers - colour is a bit better in this one too
Very simple on the inside - tend to do that with single layer card
This kind of evolved from the idea of layering a butterfly onto the doily. I also wanted it to be something special since it was going to a dear friend for her birthday. So I cut lots and lots and lots of white tissue butterflies and added those underneath the stamped butterfly die cut. Then stitched some linen thread through all the layers to secure them adding a button to top it all off. The rest of the card is pretty simple. A stamped background on the bottom, a Crumb Cake layer emerging from under doily stamped with the sentiment and a little ribbon detail right at the top. I had a lot of fun playing with new stuff and was pretty happy with how it came together too!
Given the Easter break hopefully you'll get the chance to try the colour combo out too. It might prove a soothing counterpoint to any family members a bit hyped up after eating too much chocolate this coming weekend ;)
Wishing you all a very Happy Easter
