CASE'd Kylies card from Happy Little Stampers (CASE the designer challenge - see right). I think what Kylie did was so simple and smart and looks so gorgeous, that I wanted to go a different way. Also with the sketch, I don't like to be rigid with design, so I loosened it up a bit.
For the sketch, I did a simple diagonal diecut squadron of butterflies fluttering off the corner and a black heat-embossed sentiment that reflects the angle. The diecut is all-in-one so I had to cut them apart and put them back again, then inked the wing edges. The die comes with quite big antennae but it looked complicated and messy so I decided to leave them off and put a gem on instead.
Die: Memory Box Fairyland Butterflies
Sentiment stamp: Rosies
I do like the hot pink and orange together, not really a colour combo I would normally choose. It's the first time I've used the stamp & the die.
Right: the card before I inked the wings, what a difference.
