Ombre at Simon Says

Simon Wednesday Challenge BlogI am playing along at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday blog, the theme is Ombre.  Design team members are using Hero Arts products, and I spied a long neglected but much loved butterfly stamp on my wall.

I grabbed a long neglected though much loved stamp -- Artists Butterfly along with a birthday sentiment from the Hero Arts set -- Say it All.  The butterfly was stamped on a piece of coloring paper I had already die cut with Simons' postage stamp edge dies.

I will admit I got the sentiment on crooked and after all that coloring to achieve the ombre, there was no way I was going to start over, so I just mounted it a bit wonky on a coordinating card base (island blue-sss) added some matching blue gems and this one's ready for mailing.




Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Great save on your sentiment, Cat (even though it's not noticeable)! Your ombre effect on the butterfly is just beautiful, and I love the postage stamp die cut the border! Another gorgeous card!
