CYCI #127

There is a challenge online that I've seen other people playing, and I decided to try it out.  This week's challenge was to use the colors Blue, Turquoise, and Lime.

I've been wanting to play more with my sprays, and I have the Blue Lagoon Color Splash, Electric Lime Splash, and Turbo Teal Splash which fit the challenge perfectly.  
I used some watercolor paper, and after spraying, I let it dry a little, and then blotted off the extra.

Isn't this quote wonderful? Dreams is one of the ATS stamps that you can get for free by hosting a make and take party.
 I thought about letting the quote be all on the page, but decided to add the butterfly chip (retired item).  But the technique I used can be used on any wood chip. 

I painted the wood chip with the Electric Lime Silk, and then stamped using an image from Ornamental Dream, and placed Journey Twine Black Licorice behind it trying to have three different sizes of loops to mimic the butterfly wings, adding a few Journey Sequins Blue Skies to the card with Journey Glaze 2 oz.. The color in these pictures do not do the card justice.  The Electric Lime is so bright!
After attaching the card front to a base of Denim Days 8.5 x 11 Cardstock cut in half with Easy Glide Permanent Adhesive Runner, I also used Ornamental Dream to stamp an image on a cardstock on the inside, using the Denim Days True Color Fusion Ink Pad and Electric Lime Ink Pad.

Very pretty card, Betsye! I love how you finished off the card on the inside to tie in with the front. I'm glad you decided to play along with us at Can You Case It this week! - Kayla
