Clean and Simple for Just Add Ink

Just Add Ink have a colour challenge this week. It has been a while since I have had a chance to do any challenges but these colours really appealed to me so I wanted to have a shot at it.

This card turned out nothing like I first imagined in my head! I originally did a sponged/watercolour background on the white card, but it turned out a bit too much colour so I ditched it. I was then going to use a number of bigger butterflies, but didn't like that look either! What I was left with was clean and simple with lots of white space!

Project Recipe
Stamps: Butterfly basics and Circle of Spring
Card: Crumb cake, smoky slate, whisper white
Ink: blackberry bliss and bermuda bay
Accessories: crumb cake seam binding ribbon and relf adhesive rhinestones

  1. Well CAS is certainly a winner Carole! You've kept it light and fresh. Love how the little butterfly is flying into the angled ferns. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  2. It's so hard to translate what's in your head onto paper some times!!! I love this clean and crisp card and that little butterfly is so sweet.

    Thanks for sharing your take on our colour challenge this week at Just Add Ink.

  3. This is so pretty, Carole. I LOVE the fern fronds stamped in Blackberry Bliss; a really striking feature on your card. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week. :)
