I really loved the idea of doing an ombre coloured card for the CASology challenge this week. I was staying with my Mum when I saw the Cue Word on a friends blog post. Now, usually before I create a card for this challenge, I go to the blog and look at all the entries (and DT cards) to make sure I'm not repeating someone's idea. Being with my Mum, I just wandered along making my cards and forgot to look at anything.
So....when I was on the CASology blog post, copying the 'cue card', I had a quick look thru the DT cards and saw Tracey's card. This is where that phrase comes to play!!! I'm happy that I had the same idea as Tracey as her card designs are out of this world but now was in the position of do I link this card or not. I decided why not. Hopefully Tracey will be okay with this and it will serve me right for not checking beforehand. Won't be doing that again.....
I used three colours of Distress Ink and water-colour paper to create the ombre colouring. I then die-cut the butterfly from the middle of it. This was glued directly to the card front and then the sentiment stamped in black. Done!
I have six other challenges I would like to enter:
CAS on Sunday Challenge # 57 (White card with one other colour)
Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge (Clean and Simple)
Sugar Pea Designs Challenge # 15
Uniko Studio Challenge # 20 (Things with Wings)
Inkspirational Challenge # 81 (I have lots of white space)
House of Cards - April Challenge (Add a butterfly &/or Colour Combo)
Since the internet is starting to be a bit picky, I better get this post published and linked before I lose it all again. Wish me luck!!
And my apologies Tracey!!
