Moonlight Butterfly for CAS Mix Up

Hello my friends.

We've had so much fun at the CAS Mix Up challenge this month.

There are so many gorgeous ways to use alcohol ink
and our gallery is full of beautiful entries!

I die cut a piece of alcohol ink background using a Memory Box butterfly die.

It didn't cut the little pieces out of the photo paper, but left a wonderful embossed look.

I used a piece of the same background to add a narrow mat around the frame.

The stem and flowers were cut from snippets of leftover alcohol ink backgrounds.

There's still time to join in at CAS Mix Up
Using stamping, alcohol ink and die cuts.

The challenge ends on the 24th.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

The colours are so pretty. Love the sweet, dainty flowers and your gorgeous butterfly. Leaving the pieces intact gives it so much texture --- so clever! And I love the thin framing of AI paper for your square. Beautiful design, my friend! xx

OMG Bonnie...your butterfly is Stunning die cut from your Alcohol background. Love how you added a sweet narrow frame around your focal layer with more of the same AI background.

Your die cut flowers from more AI backgrounds are so sweet and perfect for your butterfly to land on...LOVE your gorgeous card my friend. TFS Hugs..

Such an appealing card but then I love anything with a butterfly on it(!) So cool that you used all AI backgrounds to create it. Here's to having a stash of good stuff. But your design skills are always the magic that makes it all come together so beautifully.

So pretty. I love the colors in the beautiful butterfly and the mat. You do wonders with that alcohol ink Bonnie.

An absolutely lovely card, Bonnie. I don't have any alcohol inks, but am thinking I need to get some! :-)

Susan said...

Great way to use up lots of your leftover bits of AI backgrounds! The butterfly is gorgeous - such a rich colour!
