A colour challenge.
I started with the butterfly card, and I made a stencil from a butterfly die (Simon Says Stamp) then sponged Distress inks through the openings. I used vellum for the details butterfly (Joy! crafts)
But when I cut off the wings on the red butterfly I didn't like the card anymore, had to chop off some of the bottom one, I was fine with that. So I didn't even bother with a sentiment.
Now that I photographed it, the card doesn't look as bad as before...always come back to your projects ;-)...
Anyway in the meantime I thought of another way to incorporate the colours.
I also made a stencil with these Paper Smooches dies (dainty flowers) and also sponged Distress inks through the opening (mowed lawn, cracked pistachio and barn door).
I then diecut the flowers again from heavy white cardstock with Stick-it on the back, so I could adhere them to the card easily.
I offset the diecuts a little, like in oldfashioned printing or old comics where lines and colours never lined up just quite right. I tried to use odd shaped stamps first, but they were too big, too small...etc.
I also diecut the sentiment, also Paper Smooches (love word 2) from black cardstock with Stick it on it.
I extended the coloured stems to the edges of the paper.
