Les Papillons


We are up to week three of our challenges at Inkspirational Challenges!  This week, we have a CASE challenge.  The inspiration is displayed below.

For my card, I chose to use this beautiful image from Crafty Individuals that fit the focal spot well.  The butterflies were water colored with Distress Markers.  The sentiment by Cavellini was stamped vertically to the left side of the focal image.  Simple embellishments include some Liquid Pearls and a few pieces of crocheted lace. As with the inspiration sample, I lifted the panels with foam dots for a bit of dimension.  We look forward to seeing your take on the challenge!  Thanks for stopping by today.  Best wishes, Yvonne

wow Yvonne-stunning! I love how you coloured the image in subtle tones and mixed it with the strong orange-works perfectly!

So striking set beside that strong orange yet amazingly enough the orange has not over-powered your stamped image.
Wonderful.

Hi Yvonne
This card has a lovely vintage look but the red card gives it a stunning twist. How beautifully you've watercoloured the image! Unique.
