CYCI 65 Clean and Simple Entry

Happy Sunday!   It's a gorgeous day here in Middle Tennessee and hopefully it will stay this way for a while!  Today's challenge at Can You Case It? is a Clean and Simple card that can be made in 10 minutes.  If you'd like to play along click here






After seeing today's CYCI challenge, I thought a card that I had designed for yesterday's card class would fit the bill quite nicely. I had 3 cards designed for yesterday's class and this is one that I wasn't completely sure about.  I really liked it but I wasn't sure that the style of it would suit the ladies in my class.  Man was I ever wrong!  It was the card that drew their attention as soon as they walked in the door since it was different that anything they had made before.

Ok, so time for a little honesty here.  I'm actually not really a fan of Orange.  I had a few pieces of Tangelo Twist Cardstock from the 2014-2016 In Color Assortments that I really needed to use so this seemed like a good opportunity to do so.  Honestly after making this card, I really think the orange worked on this one.  I started with a card base of Tangelo Twist Cardstock.  I cut a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of Whisper White Cardstock and stamped one of the splatter stamps from Gorgeous Grunge in Midnight Muse, Tangelo Twist, and Island Indigo.  I then stamped butterflies from Papillion Potpourri with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Using my aqua brush I then painted in a butterfly in each of the 3 ink colors I had used for the splatters.  Using the Elegant Butterfly Punch I then punched them out.  I used a bonefolder to cuve the buttefly wings a bit.  I stamped one of  butterfly antennas into each of the three sections randomly.  I ran a little bit of Tombow glue just down from the antennas so that only the body of the butterfly was adhered to the card.  The sentiment was from the Work of Art stamp set.  The inside was left blank with a little of the Island Indigo Ink splatter stamped in the upper right corner.  It is one of the quickest cards I've ever made.

  3. Beautiful card Tina. And thank you so much for visiting mine and leaving such a nice comment. When I first received Gorgeous Grunge at Convention I really did not think I would ever use it but now I find myself reaching for it quite often. Your palette of colors works so well here.
