Butterfly Card ~ Color Dare 289

Black and White are free colors

Open through May 3rd

Isn't this a pretty color combo! I couldn't wait to get my fingers inky
with this Color My Heart  Color Dare Challenge!
When you participate in our challenges there are a couple things you should know. We use Close to My Heart colors but if you don't have the exact color you may substitute something close. Do NOT add any brand new colors to the palette though. Black and White are always allowed unless stated with the color swatches. Each challenge is open for 2 weeks to give you plenty of time to join in the fun. You can make any kind of paper craft you like and just link to the post on our home page.

I decided to use Mink cardstock as my card base and in the background. This really makes the other colors stand out or POP! I used a water brush and ink from the lid of the stamp pad to color the flowers and butterfly. Just for fun there is a bit of shimmer on the butterfly wings. Also, I used our Make It from Your Heart how-to book with a cutting and placement guide. It makes paper crafting quick and easy!

  1. Very pretty Michelle! I really like how you stamped the leaves on the pattern paper and paired it with the wood grain.

  2. Very pretty card. Love your color combo and the woodgrain.

  3. Michelle so pretty, like how you used the design paper for stamping the leaves, excellent backing for the florals.

  4. Love that you used the wood grain for the background and that butterfly is gorgeous! Beautiful card :)
