For some reason I love monochromatic cards - to me they look elegant! Now my favorite color is green but I love browns in a card. So following the ISC Creative Architect challenge to create a monochromatic card and use the Rustic Artsy Swirl set I created this:
I used the solid stamp from Flowers - Watercolor Effect to create the background and hand cut out the ones along the right hand side. The butterfly was blended with distress inks and I added some distress stickles, the swirl from the set was stamped on the bottom of the solid panel.
Here's a side view so that you can see the dimension:
My SIL thinks I'm crazy doing all the hand cutting - but I find it very relaxing!
