Keeping it Simple

Good evening. This is my entry for the 'keep it simple' challenge at Cupcake Craft this week.
I really enjoyed creating this card. I started by spritzing a 12cm x 12cm piece of white card stock with Lilac Dawn & Khaki Green Cosmic Shimmer mica pigments to create a background mat. The image is Hero Arts CG127 Flower Box that I stamped with Versafine black and then coloured with Cosmic Shimmer Blueberry Lilac glitter and Art Glitter green glitter from the Poinsettia Medallions set. I stamped the Hero Art Butterfly CG130 onto white card and acetate then coloured both with the same glitters, cut them out, the card one I popped up with 3D foam squares and layered the acetate one on top - just gluing the body.
This was mounted onto the Cosmic Shimmer mica background and then mat & layered onto matching coloured card stock.
So there you have it - kept simple - no design papers, embellishments, flowers, ribbon but loads of fun to do!
Hope you have had a lovely day.
Thanks for popping over.
