3 for one.....

Hello everybody: I have a card to share with you today that I will link up to the CAS Colors and Sketches color challenge, the Addicted to Stamps and More CAS challenge and the Ruby's Rainbow Challenge  Anything Goes challenge.  Here's my card.


The CAS color challenge calls for Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Pink Pirouette so I stamped the butterfly onto a panel of Canson water color paper with Melon Mambo and the specks from SU Gorgeous Grunge with Pumpkin Pie. 
I only had a bit of Pink Pirouette card stock so I punched the panel with the Modern Label Punch (retired) and then punched the Pink Pirouette with the same punch and placed it like a puzzle piece so it looks inlaid. I stamped the sentiment with Melon Mambo ink.
I did a bit of high lights on the butterfly with my Pumpkin Pie marker and blended it with a damp, almost dry aqua painter. I didn't want the Melon Mambo lines to bleed.
Here is a picture of the finish inside.


The sentiment is from SU Perfectly Penned (retired).
Here are the banners that inspired this card.

Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Thank you for stopping by Karen, I made a New Year's resolution of always finish the inside of my cards before posting them, that way it will save me a lot of time when I need to mail them.

Thank you Anita, it's a lot of fun to be able to combine several challenges with one card.

Maria - beautiful work as usual. I love the blending that you managed all whilst keeping the melon mambo ink non-blurred. Impressive. The splatters really add a lot to the card. Thanks for joining us at CAS Colours & Sketches - hope to see you again next week. Liz x

Thank you for stopping by Julie, I decided to finish the card inside before posting them on my blog, it saves a lot of time when I need to mail them.

Maria A. said...

Thank you Liz, I dried the Melon Mambo ink with the heat tool, I needed for it to be completely dry before coloring the inside. I really loved participating in this challenge, you can be sure I will do the next one.

Thank you Patricia, I had fun playing along with CC&S, looking forward to the next challenge.
