Thinking of You

It has been fun to play with a set from Lawn Fawn, Fab Flowers.  I had finished recreating a card seen at my local craft shop, and was left with a piece of card stock with these butterfly cut outs....I don't have any of those beautiful background die cuts because they are so costly; so I wasn't about to toss this sheet I'd created. I did some ink blending with Ripe Persimmon and Spiced Marmalade on glossy paper before matting the butterfly sheet on top. My photography skills are not great. The blended colors are a bit more vibrant in person, and also have that gloss from the paper. The sentiment from an older CTMH set was heat embossed. The Sunset card stock is also from CTMH.

This was perfect timing for both Less Is More #366 'Monochrome' theme and
AAA Card Challenge #110 "Ombre'. 



  1. Super use of ombré, love the peachy colours Thanks for joining in with the current challenge at AAA Cards.

  2. Your card is beautiful, I love the ombre feel and how the color peeks from the die cut openings. At Less Is More we like to see some completely empty space in the cards in our gallery and although this backgrounds is as lovely as it is, it's maybe a bit full... I'd love to see a more clean and simple version of this card because I really love all the techniques you used! Thanks for joining us at Less Is More!

  3. Beautiful orange/peachy ombre! Love the butterfly cutouts. Thanks for sharing at AAA Cards challenges.
