Cottage Garden Thank You


I had the weekend 'off' from study, so I tried my best to get a lot of crafting done. I didn't as much as I would have liked done, as I was busy shopping for fixtures for our new bathroom. I did get a card done for the current Just Add Ink challenge.

This week it was a colour challenge:

Interesting! They are all very strong colours. Here's what I come up with:

I was quite pleased with the finished card. I stamped off the Melon Mambo ink once before stamping the card because I wanted to reduce the intensity of the colour just a fraction. The butterfly has 2 layers. The top one is attached with a small rhinestone brad and the wings were bent up a little. The Elegant Eggplant panel was raised on dimensionals.

Stamps: Cottage Garden
Ink: Melon Mambo, Elegant Eggplant
Card Stock: Taken With Teal, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White
Other: Small Rhinestone Brad, Paper Snips, Sponge Dauber, 1/4" Elegant Eggplant Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals, Chit Chat Rub on (retired)

Catch you later,
