The color challenge that will be posted at Color Me Beautiful on Friday is beautiful! I used the layout from Just Add Ink for my card this week.
I didn't think my card was big enough to add four panels in the back, so I just did three. I embossed them, sponged the edges with ink, then popped each panel up on Dimensionals.
The framelit is cut out on Watercolor Paper. I then stamped the flowers and used my Aqua Painter and Blender Pen to color them in. I saw a tip a long time ago to go around the edges of flowers with light gray to add dimension and a shadowed effect. The flowers on the left also have rhinestones in the center. I thought this balanced out the rhinestones on the butterfly nicely.
