Just Because

Hi, thanks for dropping in.  Today's card uses my favorite background stamp of the moment (possibly ever!) the Venetian pattern - it makes a perfect trellis behind my leaves and butterfly.


I love the look of a complementary image stamped inside the card, even though I don't do it nearly enough.  If you need any encouragement to do this, check out Seleise's blog for inspiration, I promise you will leave (a good deal later!) filled with good intentions


I started by stamping the trellis in lemon whip, over stamped the foliage in fern and then stamped the butterfly, once on a scrap of sugar and once in the top corner of the inside.  To get the multicolour effect I used sponge daubers with papaya, orange and french roast ink - starting with the lighter colour and working up.  I then cut it out and mounted it on the card using puffy tape.  The sentiments inside and out were stamped using french roast.

All the supplies for this card are from Amuse Studio and are available from my online store 24/7.
