Muse170, ABNH You are Awesome


My card for this week's Muse Challenge is a mix of old and new. The old is the butterfly stamp and the new is the InColor inks from Stampin' Up, which I used as my watercolours.

Anita gave us this inspiration:



I focused on Anita's:
-butterfly theme
-colour scheme
-use of embossing
-sentiment strip with white embossed sentiment

I used:
-Hero Arts Butterfly (appears to be retired)
-Hero Arts Thanks sentiment 
-Stampin Up inks (Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach) as watercolours, Flirty Flamingo cardbase.
-Grey Zig clean colour markers
-Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher (aka stapler)

I haven't played with A Blog Named Hero for a while - the current challenge theme is vellum so I'm linking up there as well.
