Butterfly Thanks

A few challenges have caught my eye this week. The first is at Stamping Sensations where the inspiration is a picture of poppies. The second is a colour challenge at Less is More, the colours being dark green & rust, and the third is at CAS-ology where the cue is silhouettes. I immediately decided against rust-coloured poppies as they would look like they should be thrown on the compost heap!

Instead I settled on silhouette-stamped poppies with a brayered & script-stamped background on the base card, behind an aperture cut from a piece of card popped up on dimensional glue. The greeting & butterfly were stamped in rust-coloured ink.
Cardstock: Xerox Colotech Plus 300gsm
Stamps: Artemio 10001023, Inspired by Stamping Fancy Sentiments, Hero Arts, Inkylicious Script
Inks: Adirondack Terracotta, Distress Peeled Paint
