A butterfly - to my favorite person

ShowCASed at Less Is More

I had MTF 'Brilliant Butterflies' set on my desk already, and butterflies are so so beautiful, so I used this set for another card, a very mimimalistic card.

It's a OLC - One Layer Card, i.e. no  layers at all on this one, but still I managed to create some depth by using TH dots mask with black soot distress ink.

Another way to add some depth and interest to a OLC is by using different shades of the same color, which I did on the wings of the butterfly. For more interest, I inked the edges of the big wing with a little darker shade of aquamarine ink.

The intricate lacy wings and the body were stamped with black ink.

The sentiment, from Waffle Flower 'Happy Birthday Duo Sentiments set, was stamed several times with the same darker aquamarine ink I used for the edges of the big wing.

With such a versetile sentiment, this card can be usedd for many occasions, and also for both genders


Less Is More #480- aquamarine and black
