Inlaid Butterfly


Playing along with a few challenges.  Started with the Less Is More #270 - White space but not white and Addicted to CAS #85 - Inlaid Dies.


I created a watercoloured panel to place behind my butterfly aperture.  I made it a long time ago, so not really sure of the colours, but believe I used Stampin' Up Inks (tempting turquoise, tangerine tango, daffodil delight and gumball green).  :)

I need to start writing down what I use on the backs of my panels since I now have a huge stash to pull from when I'm ready to make a card. :)

I placed the butterfly back into the aperture, gluing the body down and pulling the wings forward.  I hope that counts as inlaid.

Thanks for stopping by.

This beautiful butterfly looks like stained glass! The black surrounding it really makes it pop! I've tried writing on the back but have forgotten to look in my excitement of finding the right background that I adhere it to the card before I note it. I'm hopeless!

Mac Mable said...

Stunning...The background colours are gorgeous behind the butterfly. Yes I don't know about inlaid dies and should they be completely flat but I absolutely love this card and great to see CAS cards on black x

Marcia HIll said...

You're going from one artistic success to yet another. This is just so very beautiful, and I love the glowing inlaid panel behind this gorgeous butterfly. The charcoal color allows the rich colors of the inlay to gleam just wonderfully well. TFS & Hugs.
