I thought these were nice fall colors, but I am tired of leaves already so I decided to do some butterflies instead. I am addicted to the Baby-Wipe Technique, so I drug out my reinkers again for this card.
I started out using all three colors of ink for the butterflies, but it looked too muddy so I started over and inked them with just Calypso Coral and Summer Starfruit. When they blended together they created a lighter shade of Soft Suede, so it all ended up coordinating beautifully! The butterflies are also spritzed with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz so they have a little sparkle in the sunlight. My strip of three colors is actually a separate piece of Very Vanilla cardstock that I clear embossed with the dots and then sponged over. I sometimes get smudges when I just mask, so I went this route instead this time. This isn't a color combination that I would have put together but I think it is really beautiful!
