Muse #114 + CASology Week 143: Ombre + Simon Says CAS + Poppystamps #7

I order a few things last Sunday from two different online stores and checked this morning for an update on delivery. Imagine my happy surprise when one said the package was delivered yesterday. I ran out to the mailbox to discover that, yes indeed, a few new dies had been sitting out overnight. Instead of continuing to clean in preparation for my mother-in-law arriving tomorrow I started experimenting with my new Poppystamps Princess Butterfly die.




After partially die cutting the butterfly so that the center was still adhered to the panel, it was masked off and ombre inked with Abandoned Coral Distress Ink.




A PTI Wet Paint sentiment is stamped below the butterfly and then this panel was popped up over another white panel and finally adhered to the card base.

This clean & simple card is being entered in a number of challenges;

This is my first time entering the Poppystamps Challenge and I'm not sure why it took me so long to discover it as I'm a huge fan of their dies.

Back to cleaning and impatiently awaiting my other order, which hasn't even shipped yet :(

Thanks for stopping by,

Jacquie

  2. This is gorgeous, Jacquie. Much better than having a clean house. I love your ombre inking, and the way that butterfly just practically flies off of your card. Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology this week.

  14. It's always exciting to get a new package and I'm glad you had a few minutes to create this beauty. The ombre' effect on the wings on that gorgeous butterfly was a great way to go.
