As You See It 199 - Design Team Card

Welcome to a new challenge at As You See It. This week, we have a colour challenge. Amanda's given us one that I found to be particularly challenging!

I thought I'd try to go subtle, since Lovely Lipstick and Pineapple Punch are in-your-face kind of colours but somehow, it didn't end up being in the least bit subtle...

This die set, Butterfly Beauty, is stunning all by itself. It co-ordinates with the Beauty Abounds stamp set. It's lovely layered like this but also works well in its separate layers. It can also be carefully cut apart so that you can use small groups, or even single, butterflies. I haven't used it whole like this anywhere near often enough, so I simply layered it using Powder Pink and Lovely Lipstick.

The background is made from a mix of shaving foam, Pineapple Punch inkpad and Powder Pink re-inker. Each of the inks was applied with an acrylic block, in the style of the Kim Jolley

If you'd like to see what the rest of the team have done with this colour combo, visit them at As You See It. Then get out your ink and join in with us. We'd love to see how YOU see it!

  1. I absolutely love this card Jan - it’s stunning and those bold colours make the butterflies pop! I still haven’t tried the shaving foam thing but that background is the perfect mix of colour to showcase the bold lipstick outlines, I’m going to have to give it a go! I’m so glad this set is carrying over as I haven’t used my dies at all and I’ve had them ages - oops! A fabulous card.
