Pattern Play Day Three Using Antique Rose Papers

For day three of Pattern Play I decided to try out Kristina Werners tips. I chose a paper from the KaiserCraft Antique Rose collection and cut it into 2cm strips. I used an off cut from another card with some washi tape to make a straight edge to help me layout and adhere my strips of paper.
 Next I grabbed a Cuttlebug Cut and Emboss folder. I am not sure what it's called sorry :( but it makes some lovely labels. I grabbed a subtle pp from the antique rose pad to make my label. I tried using distress stain to highlight the raised edges but that didn't work very well. Later I used some snow cap paint dabber mixed with a little water on the raised edges. The sentiment is from Inkadinkados Chelsea Sentiments.
Next I decide it looked a little plain so I cut a butterfly from the same pp as the background with Tim Holtz's movers and shapers from Sizzix. I chose a piece that was mostly blue so I could bring that colour in a bit more instead of it just being a little bit on the edge. I added some orange bling to the centre with Matte Accents as my Multi-Medium Matte ran away lol. I felt it could do with that little bit extra . . .

I used a small strip of  foam tape to raise the butterfly off the label a little bit. I was very overwhelmed with how bold and bright this paper is, but I have to say I think I like how this card turned out :)
