The delicious Color Cue Challenge combination and Limelight Papercraft's sketch challenge from last week were a perfect match for this card. I first stamped a background pattern of the outlined fern and butterflies on blue, then ink distressed the edges and sponged a bit of color inside each element. I then stamped a woodgrain pattern on the orange pattern and gave it the same treatment as the blue. I took the digital file found here, created colored silhouettes in my photo editing program and printed on white paper. I went back to add the spots with a brown maker. I like the contrast of the distressed treatment on the colored paper against the stark white and clean design of the printed fawn patterned paper.
