Papillon Potpourri

This is a card that my Stamp Club ladies get to make this month at our first club meeting.  I CASEd this card by Marie-Josee Prevoneau.  I loved the colour combination she used with Cajun Craze, Midnight Muse and More Mustard (I used Summer Starfruit since More Mustard has now retired). 
This month, Stampin' Up! is featuring a special 15%-discounted Butterfly Bundle that includes the Papillon Potpourri stamp set and the Bitty Butterfly punch, so I wanted to showcase those.  The large butterfly images are stamped on Very Vanilla and punched with the Elegant Butterfly punch.  I stamped the small butterflies on vellum cardstock, punched them with the Bitty Butterfly punch and adhered them to the large butterflies with mini glue dots. 

For the background piece that the butterflies are on, I used some watercolour paper and dipped my AquaPainter in the Cajun Craze, Summer Starfruit and Midnight Muse inks (separately), and swiped them across the paper.  The beauty is you could do this card in any colour combination you want!

The card base is Soft Suede, as is the greeting from Sassy Salutations.
