A Study in Brown and Orange

A card for two challenges:

Crafty Catz Challenge #150 Brown and Orange

Totlally Papercrafts challenge134-use-your-favourite-stamp.html

Well, as you can see there is a lot of brown and orange on this card so I think I score on that one. The base card is orange with orange and brown mats used under the image. The flourishes and double butterfly, cut using Spellbinder dies, are in brown.

The image is from my absolute favourite stamp by Sheena Douglass from her "A Little Bit Sketchy" range. The image was stamped onto watercolour card with Adirondack Espresso ink. A water brush was used to pull the ink from the image to shade the rest of the card so that there was no white card to be seen. Once the image was dry it was matted onto brown card and mounted onto the card with Pinflair glue to raise it away from the base A5 card to give dimension.

The butterfly was just attached to the card by the body so that the double set of wings were raised up.
