ATCAS #85 - Inlaid Die Cut(s)

We are back with a new challenge at Addicted to CAS . This time the host of the challenge is very talented Sarah and she has chosen the code word... Inlaid Diecuts. This is one of my very favorite technique, i makes you card look so delicate and fantastic. Plus this time it is even more special to me as I had recently bought a butterfly diecut and never got a chance to use it :) this code word gave me a perfect opportunity :)
You will win a $15 Gift certificate from our fabulous sponsor Happy Little Stampersstamps
Here's my card...
 
To make this card, I die cut the Memory box butterfly on a white card stock. I also inked a glossy card stock with some alcohol inks and die cut it again. Then on a black card stock I added some white splatter, laid the outline die cut of the butterfly in white on the base and then inlaid the colored pieces into it. To finish the card I stamped the sentiment (from STAMPlorations - Fond Expressions)
Here are a few more clicks...


I am sharing this card at Color Throwdown #386, City Crafter challenge blog #305 - Whitewash, Simon Says Wednesday challenge - Anything Goes! and Less is more #270 - White space but not white
 
Our DT has come up with some amazing projects this week. Pop over to our ATCAS challenge blog here and take a peek. I am looking forward to the challenge this fortnight and am very excited to visit your blogs. 

Have fun in creating CAS card :) and thank you for visiting my blog.
