Butterfly Effect


This is my Clean and Graphic and rather literal interpretation of this week's Card Concept #37  inspiration.
As defined on the Card Concept Blog, Clean and Graphic design is:
  • clean lines
  • simple treatment of text
  • no frills
  • bare boned
  • message is communicated quickly
I think this card definitely fits the description. Like DT Member Shannon Jaramillo,  I was inspired by the blended colors and the white details in the inspiration photo. 


I love these butterfly images and matching dies from Stampendous.  I just got them, and this challenge was perfect for me to put them to good use. I embossed the butterfly images with white EP. Then using the stencil that comes with the stamps, I sponged them with Hero Arts neon ink, and diecut them. I masked the butterfly images, stamped the antennae for each butterfly on the card base, and embossed them with white EP before adhering the butterfly diecuts to the card.

I love the way this one turned out.  Thanks for the inspiration Card Concept DT, and thank YOU for stopping by today... and CM, this one's for you!
