CMCC #14... monochromatic

Hey friends!!  Wednesday has rolled around that that means a new Colour Me...! combo is up at the Colour Me blog!  This week it is the fun, bright color of Pumpkin Pie (orange).  And since it is the start of a new month, we are joined by a brand new talented guest designer... Anita!! All the challenge details can be found over at the Colour Me...! blog.



 For my card today I decided to create an ombre look on a little tag that I made from some watercolor paper using a new tag punch that Stampin Up! just released.  The punch is pretty darn cool as it allows you to make your tag as long or short as you want.  I first stamped the butterfly from the SU! set Backyard Basics on the tag using watermark ink, applied white embossing powder and then heat set.  Once that was done I spritzed the tag with water, blotted off the excess and then applied Pumpkin Pie ink using some water and a paint brush.  A second butterfly was stamped with the watermark ink, white embossing powder applied, heat set and then watercolored.  I die cut it using the matching die and adhered it to the tag using a foam dimensional.  The sentiment is from the SU! set So Very Grateful was stamped, trimmed out and adhered to the tag.  A bit of orange ribbon and a few clear sequins finished off my little tag which was then adhered to the card front.  I watercolored the bottom on the inside of the card and then stamped it with another sentiment from So Very Grateful.  Posting this to the second "Time Out" challenge.  Check out the lovely inspiration photo.  Obviously I focused on the butterflies!

Thanks for stopping by...please check out the projects created by my fellow teamies Tara, Hayley, Sam, Katie, Brenda and April guest designer, Anita!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI rustic white, Strathmore watercolor paper; Ink:  SU! Pumpkin Pie & Memento London Fog; Punch:  Stampin Up! tag punch; Sequins:  Pretty Pink Posh; Stamps:  Stampin Up!
