CPS Day 15 Sketch with CR84FN Colors

CPS (Card Positioning System) Card Sketches is celebrating their 5th Anniversary with a challenge to make card using the previous patterns they select over 15 days. This is the last day and it uses Sketch #231. Kim Moreno from Flower Soft made a sample card with a cute image you have to see. I chose to use the color palette from CR84FN Color Challenge #48 - gray, chartreuse, and lavendar. I would never thought of using those colors together, but I certainly will again.




 The butterfly and sentiment were stamped with CTMH Gray Flannel, their lighter gray. The sentiment could have been darker to show up better in a photo. I used a very old CTMH stamp set, "To Love More." The tulip tops were inked with Tim Holtz Milled Lavendar and rock and rolled in Dusty Concord. I used Peeled Paint on the stems thinking it was my lightest green but it was really too dark.  The sentiment is also an old CTMH stamp called Thoughtful Scripts. I added some CTMH Licorice Opaques which look like gray pearls to the butterfly. I'm glad they come in graduated sizes.

Beautiful card, Vickie. The floral image looks like a canvas oil painting.
