Cards in Envy Challenge: Beautiful Butterflies

Happy Monday!  It’s time for another Cards in Envy challenge .  This week our theme is “Beautiful Butterflies.”

As a reminder, Cards in Envy asks that your card fit into a standard A2 envelope for ease of mailing, but that doesn’t mean they have to be one layer or clean and simple.

For today’s card I used one of the newer sets from Alte New called, Botanical Garden.  The coloring is a combination of both Copic Markers for the base and Prismacolor Pencils for detail.  To keep a “no-line” feel, I started with the lightest color of pink ink for the initial stamping. The card base is a WPlus9 die which adds rounded edges for a softer feel. To display, I played in photoshop to give a textured background.   I think I need to break out those lessons on how to use this program better!

Butterflies

Hope we’ll see your butterflies in the Cards in Envy challenge.  You have until March 20th to enter.
