Nature Infused

Reposted: This card was published in the December, '07 issue of Cards, pg.173.

I love this little butterfly! And the Infuse paper by Basic Grey is so yummy, too. I know that I said that on my last post, but it bears repeating! I got the 6x6 pad of it at my LSS, and I will try to do that every time, now! It's perfect for cards - I know that that's probably not news to any of you, but just in case! ;)

I'm not happy with how the colors came out in this pic, and if I have time later, I'll replace it with a better pic. The base is Ruby Red, even though it looks more like Really Rust.

I used my Touch of Nature set, because I think it looks nice with the PP. I watercolored the flower and butterfly with Ruby, Cameo, Olive, and Blush. The wings of the butterfly are elevated, as if it just landed. It's very pretty IRL. And did you notice the doodle detail on the main image? Totally inspired by the MFT sets! :) I also love how the words from Baroque Motifs totally fit perfect in the Key Tag punch! (See my last post pic.)

Well, I'm off to get the monkey dressed and fed to get ready for our day! We're going walking with the MOMS Club - need to whip my butt in shape! ;) Later, I may get to play with some of Mimi's new SU! sets! {wink, Mim!}

Talk to you soon! Have a great day!

    Okay, this may be a completely dorky question but I just got a Cuttle bug two days ago. HOw did you get jsut the top of the card embossed? Is that much of the back of the card embossed too? Thanks for helping out a newbie to the 'bug! Your cards are always inspiring!

  14. Touch of Nature is one my SU wish list! You've really inspired me to challenge myself to find stamps that take more time to color and you definitely ROCK the cards with color! No detail got unnoticed by me either...love the lines framing the main image.

  15. Oh, my gosh!! Love that butterfly!! What a perfect match for the paper! I was thinking how much I love the color combo--I really thought that was Rust. Trying to imagine it in Ruby Red... I think it's gorgeous in either color!
