Another Day, Another Card...Don't Fall Over from the Shock!

This is a shameless CASE of a stunning card I saw and fell in love with on SCS. Her color combination just popped off the page; however, I didn't possess enough of said colors to recreate it exactly, so I chose three similar colors from the new InColor collection. These would be Bermuda Bay, Dusty Durango, and Crushed Curry. I added Old Olive for snicks.

The most interesting technique I used was for the "outline" of the butterflies. It's called bouncing, and uses the brush tip of the Stampin' Write Marker, in this case DD, and it is tapped along the edge all the way around the image after it was inked in CC. Such a cool effect and so easy!

I'm off to TN today to attend the fundraiser dinner for Amazima Ministries Int'l (see icon/link in sidebar). The founder's mom ordered an 8"x10" version of the invitation as a keepsake, so that'll be fun to present to her! Perhaps I'll have pics and a report when I return Saturday.
