#783 – In focus!

PE: CAS On Friday Favorite!!

CAS on Sunday - Honorable Mention

Hello! Since I watercolored quite a few cards these past few days (well, some are yet to be published here…) I thought of switching gears a bit. So after going through some challenges that I thought of joining, I made a CAS card –

I Miss Your Face

To make this card, I first cut an oval shape out of some scrap paper, to use it as a mask. I used this on a white card base to apply Fozzilised Amber distress oxide ink. On another piece of scrap white cardstock, I stamped the butterflies using MFT Hybrid Black ink. After fussy cutting these, I foam mounted them on the card base

I then colored another piece with Worn Lipstick and Candied Apple distress oxide inks and die cut the letters ‘hi’ using Lawn Fawn Quinn’s ABCs dies. However, when I places it on the yellow backdrop, it wasn’t looking that good, so I added a little Wild Honey on the top. I then stacked this die with a few more pieces and adhered it to the card. I then stamped the rest of the sentiment, from Ellen Hutson Totally Random Sayings Vol 1, using MFT Hybrid Black ink. Finally added a few dots around the butterflies using a black pen.

I totally loved how that yellow ink forms a real quick and easy backdrop, but brings everything into focus so easily! And that bright yellow – totally love that! πŸ™‚

With this card I am joining the following challenges –

Clean and Simple on Friday challenge #139: Butterflies
