Can You Case It? #85 - Colour Challenge


This weeks Can You Case It? challenge is a colour challenge! Some gorgeous colours at that!


I've been playing so much with my Holiday Catalogue products that my Annual Catalogue products were starting to feel neglected. So time to pull out a favourite stamp set - Watercolor Wings. It is such a stunning set and you really cant go wrong when using because the results always turn out amazing!


The striped panel looks black in this picture but in fact they are actually Early Espresso from the DSP from the Neutrals Backgrounds Designer Series Paper Stack. 


The butterfly is actually stamped using one colour, Hello Honey. I used a simple but very effective technique called 'Stamping Off' (that's what I call it). The lightest layer I stamped on to scrap paper twice and then onto my cardstock. The second layer, the very edge of the wings I stamped off onto my scrap paper once and then onto my card stock and then the darkest layer I stamped straight onto the cardstock. So you can get varying shades of colour out of the one ink pad. LOVE THAT!!!


Do you see the gold foil doily just popping out underneath the circle? I love the scalloped edge that the doily gives to the circle. Gold is a shade of yellow, isn't it? I just love gold elements on my creations.  Now to go an find the butterflies body that fell on the floor when I was making this card and for the life of me do you think I can see it! Grr! Hope I can find it!

Make sure you check out the rest of the awesome creations from the other Can You Case it DT peeps! They are a clever and creative bunch! Come and show us your creations using the challenge colours! Can't wait to see what you create!
