It Feels Like Fall.


The weather's gotten cooler, leaves are beginning to change. I've seen some amazing Fall cards in blogland... but these cards still say summer. In denial.
I took this week's challenge at CAS-ual Fridays as a reason to make a card set for the rapidly approaching craft show. The challenge is MINI CARDS. I looooooove making teeny tiny little cards! These one's are 3 1/4" x 3 1/4".




So I knew I wanted to use butterflies. And I wanted both butterflies to be the same image, only in different sizes. I could have used a digi as it's easy to adjust the stamp's size, but I have no idea how to change the colour. For me, all digis can only be printed in black. Instead, (experiment time) I used a clear butterfly stamp, used it in the colour I wanted, then ran it through my copier at 300%. Ok, that works.







Also for these challenges -
Crafty Boots. THINGS WITH WINGS.
Card Cupids. ANYTHING GOES.
Wee Memories. NO PATTERNED PAPER.
Thanks for stopping by,
Farrah
