Celebrate for JAI #269

This is my entry for the Just Add Ink #269 - Color Combo challenge.

I used Lost Lagoon for my card base. I added a layer of Whisper White which has been stamped in Tip Top Taupe and Lost Lagoon using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. I inked the stamp in each colour once and then stamped each three times to get the different shades.

I picked the largest butterfly from Watercolor Wings and stamped the layers using Soft Sky, followed by Pool Party and then Lost Lagoon. The butterfly was cut out using the matching Bold Butterfly framelits.

A Soft Sky butterfly, cut using the Butterflies thinlits, was added over the top of the stamped butterfly.

The Celebrate from the Expressions Natural Elements was coloured using Tip Top Taupe Ink.

The card has been finished by adding some Lost Lagoon Stitched Satin Ribbon.

I like this colour combination - what do you think?
