Tone on Tone Butterfly Card

 Good morning, Glad you could stop by. I was looking at challenges to play along with and found a few. One challenge that I spotted was to create a tone on tone card. Besides a white on white card, I'm not sure if I had ever created one, So I thought I would take on the challenge. 




Thought I would make this one a sympathy card. It's always good to have a few made up before you need them. 

 Not sure why I chose greens but that's the papers I grabbed. The butterfly was given to me by a friend several years ago. It doesn't have a name on the case. I think it's Stampin Up since she was a demonstrator and the sentiment is from an altenew set.

The background die is from Taylored Expressions called Kaleidoscope.This is my first time using it. I like the die but not sure if it was the right choice for this card.

I used a flower that I have had for a long time. Made by Petaloo. I do love using things that I have had for awhile.

Used Old Olive Ink on the butterfly and for the sentiment. 

Green card stock is Old Olive and the yellow/green card stock is from Michaels. The green paper is from my stash. I colored a clear gem with a green alcohol marker. Also used a stitched oval.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a great weekend. I'm going to be spending a few days with my Mom.
