Butterfly Duo

A "simple" one layer card can be exhausting! 


I don't want to admit HOW MANY TRIES IT TOOK


to finish this.





Inky fingers and not enough pressure on the stamp made it harder than it had to be.



I had fun anyway. ;)


I stamped the butterfly twice.  Since I didn't re-ink, the second one came out lighter.


I masked each butterfly and stamped the background.




 Challenges that inspired me:




~Just Add Ink 84 Colour Challenge (white plus one other colour)


(I chose green ink to get as close as I could to the color in this picture. I really liked the clean/graphic design and tried to mirror that in my card.)













I appreciate you stopping by today. ;)

  10. Super card Marlene
    It's a popular misconception that CAS cards are easy! PErfect placement takes a lot of though to get right. As you have!
    Good to see you

  19. I love it! I too find CAS incredibly tricky. Including less makes each single element so much more crucial - that said, you totally rocked this. Awesome :)
