Butterfly Kissing

by karen @ carefree creations - One Layer Butterflies

This card was created for a couple challenges. First, Addicted to CAS’s One Layer challenge. Second, ColorQ’s latest color scheme.

When creating one layer cards I feel it is necessary to have a color scheme that pops. Which is why I went to experts – color is NOT my thing.

Also, since I can’t add dimension (my usual helper for CAS cards), I like to add texture. To achieve texture on this card I used kissing.

I suppose “kissing” is really not the proper term. To me kissing is when you have two inked stamps and press them together (or one inked and one not) before making the impression. This is really an overlay or 2-step stamping. I stamped the solid butterfly in the lighter color ink, then used the same solid image, cleaned then kissed against a pattern image inked with a darker shade. Since the stamps are clear, lining the second impression directly over the first is a snap!

Thanks for taking a peek!
