Watercolour Wings in Watermelon Wonder for JAI#268

I should know by now that even though not everything I see (in the catalogue) appeals to me straight away I will eventually grow to love it! The Watercolour Wings set was one I looked at, pondered over but thought "nah I'm not going to like that!" But how could I be so silly!! Its a beautiful 2, even 3 step stamping set and its gorgeous! Its on page 75 of the Catalogue.
I'd like to thank my 5 year old son, Gabriel for choosing the colours for this card! Genuis! Thanks beautiful!
I'm loving this new Brick wall embossing folder too, so funky, I cut out a few bricks to make it a little more realistic and sponged a bit of Soft Suede ink over it. I didn't want to hide the 'brick wall'with another big rectangular piece so I added a long thin banner in watermelon wonder. I created a quick flag from the Cherry Cobbler Striped Ribbon which is lovely and vibrant. Lastly a new PUNCH has been added to my collection - the WASHI punch - I will be using this one lots I can see! Here is my card...
How I stamped the butterfly:
Base layer - Watermelon Wonder stamped off once
Wing Edges - Watermelon Wonder full colour strength
Centre Details & Dots - Cherry Cobbler full colour strength
Here is the inspirational sketch from the lovely design team over at Just Add Ink Sketch #268
No post is quite complete without a little photo-bombing from "Mr Marco" & his Octonauts!

  4. Beautiful card and beautiful colours, Carolina! That is an awesome colour combo for the butterfly. And I love that you have only used two colours when in fact it looks like 3!
