It's All About Stamping

Butterflies Challenge


Welcome to my blog!  Today is Saturday and that means a challenge over at Our Creative Corner.  Today’s challenge is all about butterflies–how fun is that!  I’m typically not a big butterfly fan but I enjoyed this soooo much (because I like to color)!  Thanks Rudlis!  I do like butterflies… for their colors and how delicate they are.

I had the worst time trying to get the colors to look right in the photo.  In this 1st photo the so saffron looks more like apricot appeal and the 2nd one is too light yellow.  You’ll have to take my word for it and that the yellows in the butterfly and the paper actually match.  lol!  Oh well…I know all of you that blog your papercrafts know what I mean!


Here’s What I Used:
Stamps:  Natural Beauty, Signature Greetings (PTI)
Paper:  So Saffron, Bravo Burgundy, Whisper White,
Ink:  Basic Black
Accessories:  Copics, Stickles, 1/8″ burgundy ribbon, Gold elastic cord, Frame Embossing Folder, Craft Knife, White Gel Pen, Dimensionals,

I hope you’ll come join this fun challenge with us! Check out what the rest of the OCC Design Team has created. If you upload to SCS, use the keyword OCCC. If you would like to be considered for the Top Talent award, be sure you link back to the OCC post by 11:59pm EST next Friday. Happy creating!
