FIVE SHADES OF GREY & A "POP" OF YELLOW

I made this card for three challenges - Card Concept (grey, yellow and white), Paper Players (the great outdoors) and CAS-ology #153 (the word "pop).


I used my MISTI to stamp the Penny Black Gentle Whisper flower in shades of gray - Mememto London Fog, Grey Flannel and HA Charcoal - stamped it several times until I was satisfied with all the colors.  The HA butterfly was stamped with Mememto Dandelion and more color was added with Zig Clean Color Brush yellow.  Added some clear sequins, Wink of Stella and silver wire to finish the butterfly.  Cardstock used was HA Wet Cement and SU Sahara Sand.  The HA sentiment was stamped on vellum.

The Card Concept style - CAS; Paper Players - flower & butterfly for great outdoors; CAS-ology - pop of color and the butterfly is popped up.

I think this will be part of a set of cards with different colored butterflies and sentiments.

Thanks for visiting my blog today and love reading your kind comments.  Betty

  11. Hi Betty, beautiful card, love the flower! Fun how the butterfly pops up!do you love your zig brush markers? Do you use them often? I went out to search for them here in Rotterdam, but could not find them...hope I can find them somewhere.
