Hello there, crafty friends! Today is a super exciting day!!! I'm the Guest Star Stamper over at the Color Throwdown Challenge!!! Here's the color combo we're playing with this time around:
Isn't it absolutely STUNNING?!?!!! I love it!
Here's the card I created :) I was inspired by the colors AND that beautiful inspiration photo!
I stamped the butterflies from Painted Butterflies (Altenew) onto a panel of soft stone cardstock in Fiesta Blue and Something Borrowed (Catherine Pooler) and Onyx Black Versafine (Tsukineko) Note: Soft stone is a really light gray---my personal favorite. The sentiment is from a Papertrey Ink set called Pen and Ink. I love the brush script font and think it pairs up nicely with the sketch-style of the butterflies. I added the embossed gold splatters as a finishing touch.
I hope you'll join us for the current Color Throwdown Challenge! I'd love to see how you're inspired by this fabulous color combo!!!
Thanks for visiting!

I masked off an area, blended some Distress Oxide inks, and then stamped the silhouette images and sentiment. I'm still working on a collection of cards for various occasions to send to my grandma (and a set for my mom as well). Keeping the cards nice and flat so that they don't require any extra postage or special mailing supplies.
Here's a second one using different images from the same stamp set and different colors.
Hope you're having a good week so far!
