I told you yesterday that I needed several cards for this week and after spending longer than I intended on yesterday's card I really needed a quick card for my daughter to give her friend tomorrow.
Now I saw the colour theme for this week's LIM challenge which sparked off the idea of making a quick one layer card. I masked off the side of my card using post it notes and rubbed a pink TH distress ink pad over the area, used a brown momento ink pad to stamp my butterflies and masked them before stamping a slightly deeper shade of pink Momento flourish. I then added a touch of colour to the butterfly wings using Copics. Once I'd removed the post it notes I felt that something was missing so used a zigzag blade in my trimmer to cut a narrow strip of brown card which I placed along the pink panels.
Now, this card didn't take too long to make, I quite like how it looks but I'm never quite so happy sending one layer cards, I always feel that they're almost, well, less special than other cards that I make, I'd be interested to know how the rest of you feel about them.
I'm using this card for the following challenge,
Less Is More 83, Brown and pink.
Thanks for stopping by,
