Using the Negative Space from Cut Images

CAS Butterfly Card

 Sometimes it is hard to throw away the scraps from cut images.  This butterfly was one such cut for me.  It is about 3 inches tall and I knew it would look great with the Watermelon cardstock behind it.  After looking at it for a couple of minutes I decided to stamp it with one of the Diverse Background stamps using CTMH's Archival black ink.  I layered it with Topiary and White Daisy cardstock along with a little more Watermelon.  The final touches were the hand drawn antennae and a bit of bling.

It is a simple card and only took a couple of minutes to make.  But, I think it is very pretty. I hope you like it, too.

I hope you have had a restful weekend with some time to create something.  It rejuvenates my soul to work with crafty things so I am now ready for a busy week.
Thank you for visiting!
