A Cameo Card...

I have not made a card for a challenge in ages!  The current challenge at Moxie Fab World is "The Appearance of Cameos"..truly a challenge for me as I have no cameo stamps.  After checking out Google Images for inspiration, I was happy to see that cameos are not just faces of women...they could be flowers or butterflies or scenes.  Here is what I came up with:


Stamps: gossamer wings (A muse), borders & corners oval (PTI)
Paper:  latte, red shimmer couture, watermelon (A muse)
Ink:  versamark
Accessories:  black embossing powder (SU), black superfine detail embossing powder (Ranger), black pearls (Kaisercraft), styled labels die (Tim Holtz), black ribbons (Supreme Laces), Dymo labeller, corner chomper

The butterfly and oval frame are heat embossed for a bit of dimension - I used detail embossing powder for the oval frame and regular embossing powder for the butterfly.  The black elements help the eye travel around the card.  I kind of like the pink label backed with the red panel - doesn't clash at all!! Hope you like it...make sure you check out the challenge and play along!

So brilliant! I would have never thought to use a butterfly as a cameo!
