CR84FN32 Part II

I am enjoying being able to play twice with the same color samples for the CR84FN. Having the challenge for two weeks gives me a chance to try something different with my second card.


My first thought was to create yellow and green flowers using distress inks. I rooted around in my Hero Arts drawers and found this beautiful Garden Star Flower. I stamped the flower using black ink and sponged on the greens and yellow.  I cut them out and accented them with white gel pen.

The Butterfly was an afterthought and was stamped and colored using the sponged distress ink.



The verse is from Verses Rubber Stamps - Kiss of the Sun - QQ0386-E.

Thanks for stopping by!
