Honouring Ombre


 Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World is to use this inspiring photo.  The challenge is called " Honoring Ombre".

Anyone who knows me well, knows I love working with Purples of every shade and just love Butterflies.  So how could I not join in.

Tuesday Trigger

I started by smooshing three colours of distress ink onto my craft mat and spritzing with water and dragging the card stock through it.  I then spritzed it with some gold Perfect Pearls. Once it dried, I trimmed and layered onto the purple card and added the sentiment from Couture Creations and a die cut butterfly from Memory Box.

Got up this morning in time to watch the America's Cup races.  Team NZ 2, Oracle 0.  Great start and after a good win for the AB's last night against Argentina.

Hope you weekend is going well

What a great card - love the effect you got on your background, and how you let it sing by keeping the sentiment and butterfly 'simple'.

Hello Dawn
Your Bg is fabulous, you have a one off effect, that has texture and movement and if you tried to re-create it again it would not happen, that is the magic of this media and technique. I am pleased you did not cover it up and just used words.... A great card.
