Blue & Orange and Another Sweater

I remember when we used 'Complementary Colours' as the theme at CAS Watercolour, I loved all the cards using Blue and Orange, so I am happy to see the colour combo at Color Hues this month.

I stamped Butterfly with Zig Marker (Deep Blue) and Distress Oxide (Broken China) to vary the hue.
I then stamped again with Versamark and clear embossed.
Then I used a Zig Marker and wet brush to add the orange and then sprinkled with Brushos. The butterfly was fussy cut.  I stamped the Catre Postale text with Distress Ink (Blueprint Sketch) adding some hoghlights with the Zig Marker.  The white panel was embossed with a square die and trimmed to fit the blue card base.  I added the orange splatter for an artsy look.
Stamps: Kaisercraft Pen & Ink; Paper Rose Carte Postale
Die: Kaisercraft

and here is another Christmas Sweater card...
This is a very simple card. I love red and white, Scandi style Christmas cards, so this time I die cut the sweater in white and coloured the decorative bits with red Copic marker.  I layered it with foam tape (which helped with sticking the bits back in) on the embossed background. 
The diecut sentiment was coloured to match and I added the twine for fun. 
Dies: Kaisercraft Sweater; Penny Black sentiment
Embossing Folder: We R Memories
