Stamps: Teeny Trees (Waltzing Mouse); Polka Dot Basics II (PTI); Alphabet (Papermania)
Ink: Rhubarb Stalk, Tangelo (Memento)
This card is for The Play Date Cafe colour challenge: Cotton Candy, Ruby, Citrus & Dusk.
The butterfly is done using the teeny trees set, with the stalk for the antennae. The pale pink colour was achieved by stamping off the Rhubarb Stalk. I then used a polka dots stamp to kiss the darker colour back on. I really like the soft blurry effect at the edge of the dots. The heart trail & the 'BIRTHDAY' were both created digitally, & printed prior to stamping.
On reflection, I'm not entirely convinced by the placement of the BIRTHDAY, perhaps this would look better as a 'hello' card instead. I also think the butterfly should be further over to the left, but hen the point of the heart would catch on the 'h'... BUT I love being able to make a butterfly out of a tree set.
Teeny Trees is my current Desert Island Stamp Set. What's yours?
