Watercolor Wings for CAS C&S

It’s Thursday which means it’s time for another new challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches. This week it’s Caro’s second colour challenge of the month and it’s the remaining retiring in colours plus silver.

Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wings and Happy Home

Here’s the banner which inspired my card

This small butterfly from Watercolor Wings is usually made using 4 stamps but today I only used three of them. The fourth one just didn’t work with these colours without having one of the colours overpower the others. I started by stamping the stamp that is almost the complete butterfly in lost lagoon and then added the detailed butterfly in blackberry bliss after stamping off once. I added the body, stamped in full strength blackberry bliss and finished it off with the stamp that just does the inside detail near the body in metallic silver. Here’s another look at the butterfly:

Next I turned to Happy Home for the sentiment. Watercolor Wings has great sentiments but “missing you” seems very appropriate – I definitely will miss these colours!

I then put this piece of whisper white onto a mat of blackberry bliss and added that to a lost lagoon cardbase. I lined the envelope with a lost lagoon envelope liner, another product that you know I’ll be missing!

I hope that you’ll pop over to CAS Colours & Sketches┬áto see the rest of the cards from the Design Team and to play with these colours; I’d love to see your card in the gallery.

I’ve announced my product share for the 2016 catalogue – details are here.

See you tomorrow,



  1. I thought these colors were a great combination as soon as I saw the badge at CAS C&S – you’ve used them to eye-catching effect, truly beautiful!
