CTS86 - Happy Birthday


The other day, I went a little crazy (who me?) with my new butterfly stamp set and dies from Papertrey Ink. I made a number of cards, casing in different ways my favourite card that Nichole made when they released them.This one ended up as my CAS(E) This Sketch entry.




I cut the bigger butterfly outline in white and sponged it with various distress inks. I then layered it over the black solid butterfly. I added some score lines to the left size and added a Clearly Besotted sentiment. I love the drama of the black against the bright colours.

Here's some of the other cards I made:

These are all gorgeous, Ardyth. I love how crisp and bright all your cards are. My fave here has to be the blue/green/purple combo, not colours I would usually reach for but it looks great x

Ardyth all of your cards are so so gorgeous!! You have taken that butterfly out of the park, need to talk ink, love that purple, which one is it?? Congratulations on your feature!

You did a beautiful job using these butterfly stamps. I love when people make a bunch of cards using the same stamp set. It gives me ideas on how to use mine!! (though I don't own this set right now-it is on my wish list!!) I love the vibrant distress inks you used with the black on the first card. I like that you used the stamped butterfly on the other cards. So fabulous!!
