My designs today feature vibrant colours with the gorgeous and versatile Briar Rose Butterfly and Harebell Butterfly sets by Chocolate Baroque . I'm drawn to greens & blue but there are lots of other beautiful colours to play with.
I'm entering this first design below into this week's Less is More Challenge as the theme is to 'use more than one stamp' - I've used 3 on this card. I haven't had a chance to enter this challenge for a while, it's a great blog to see gorgeous CAS designs.
The background above was created by blending Ripe Persimmon and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks over a circle cut in cardstock. I stamped a fragment from Textured Fragments with the Picked Raspberry ink. The flowers from Harebell Butterfly were stamped with black archival ink. The sentiment is from the fabulous Mackintosh Sentiments.
And below is definately not CAS in the same vibrant colours:
The large background is Ripe Persimmon and Seedless Preserves Distress Inks that I stamped onto my craft mat and spritzed with water. I dragged the cardstock through the ink and when dry I stamped the branch with both colours.
The smaller background is using the same technique but with Ripe Persimmon and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. I used the Harlequin stencil by TCW to add the diamond pattern.
I stamped the gorgeous image from Briar Rose Butterfly with Cobalt Archival Ink and coloured with Prisma Pencils. I stamped the image a second time to decoupage the butterflies which are popped up over the background. I added stickles to the butterfly wings.
Here is a look at the fabulous Briar Rose Butterfly and Harebell Butterfly sets
