"Beige" Color Perceptions ATC

The color is Beige in March for the Color Perceptions ATC Swap on the ArtVentures Group. The ATC is to be predominately beige and be how the color  beige makes us feel. Beige is a pale version of brown. A neutral color with a hint of warmth and a sense of calm. I find beige to be "calming". 
I colored the edges of some beige card stock with Brilliance Pearl Beige ink. And used this same ink to lightly stamp a butterfly & floral image over some leaf print beige paper.

Next, I cut a butterfly shape out of beige colored vellum, embossed butterfly design with a matching embossing folder and colored with the Brilliance Pearl Beige ink.

Found some pebbly metallic beige textured paper, cut it in a strip to layer near the bottom of the ATC and added 3 small squares of the same paper in the upper right corner.

To be out in nature is calming to me as well.
