Enough is Enough!

A very happy Friday to you all,

Today I had an idea that was inspired by the colours in the Fusion photo this week and the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch. I also wanted to enter the 'Shades of Summer' challenge at One Layer Simplicity Challenge using shades of summer #5 (see below).

This was meant to be a quick stamp and go card but I kept smudging ink, not stamping properly, just about all the inking mistakes that could happen did! This is about my 5th attempt and still I am not that happy with the stamping however no smudges on this one and in the end I decided...enough was enough!

By the time I had finished making this the light was beginning to fade but I was taking the photo and posting this today! 

So here we are:


I decided to use the orange and yellow of the Fusion flowers plus the green from the leaves-my green has some sparkle! These gorgeous butterfly stamps are from Uniko Studio.

I realise looking at this now if I had followed the exact position of the circles in the sketch it would have worked better, I think? But, guess what....enough is enough!!

I will be back tomorrow with my DT cards for Inkspirational and Addicted to CAS. I hope to see you then!

  1. We are always our toughest critics! I love how you stamped the solid images in conjunction with the outline images. Those Uniko stamps are truly fabulous.

  3. Oh, do I know that feeling... You got an idea, you know what to make, but it just doesn't happen. But it did finally! I love the outcome!

  4. I think your final attempt is lovely - offsetting the solid butterflies is very effective. Margaret
