Butterfly Bliss

This card is for two challenges at Split Coast Stampers, the color challenge and the sketch challenge. The colors for this week are Groovy Guava, Barely Banana and Chocolate Chip.

I used stamps from Touch of Nature and Fresh Cuts (both Stampin' Up).

The images in the smaller squares were inked up with Versa Mark, then Chocolate Chip and stamped on Very Vanilla. Then I heat embossed them with clear EP. Then were sponged with Groovy Gauva and mounted on Barely Banana and Chocolate Chip.

The Fresh Cuts background stamp was inked with Versa Mark, then Goovy Guava and stamped on Very Vanilla. It was sponged with Chocolate Chip.

The three butterflies were stamped with black on Le Jardin designer paper, then cut out. I sponged the outer portions with Groovy Guava and then embossed the whole thing by inking it with Versa Mark and dipping in clear embossing powder.

I hope you have a fun and happy day!

This is so lovely. I love the way you did all the layers and inchies/squares.

I just told Melanie my opinion. I think you are very talented and I won't be surprised to see someone scoop you up for their design team pretty soon.
