Butterfly

It's been several days since I've done any crafting as it's been so hot.   It's been a little cooler today, so I decided to play with my alcohol inks, which have been neglected for too long.  I used one of the pieces to make a CAS card, so I can join in with a few challenges.
I used a Memory Box 'Large Circle Burst' die with a square of white card and attached a piece of the inked card behind.  For this piece I used Ranger ' Stream' and 'Wild' Plum alcohol inks.  The letters were die cut with a Memory Box 'Uppercase Alphabet Soup' die, using purple card, picking out one of the shades from the alcohol ink. The butterfly is a Poppystamp die 'Elsa Butterfly' with three clear gems added to the centre.  I covered a card blank with the same purple card I used for the alphabet letters.

I am joining in the following challenges:

  11. It's certainly been too hot to do very much and such a waste of time I feel with all energy drained in just trying to keep cool. A super CAS card - reminds me I must dig out my alcohol inks which have also been neglected.

  15. I know what you mean about being too hot; it really zaps a person's energy. This is the worst summer I can remember for high heat and humidity - it's really uncomfortable and so hard to sleep at night. But on a happy note, I love your alcohol ink background and gorgeous die-cuts!
