Challenges for this weekend - Card 1

The first card for this weekend used two different challenges - a Sketch and a colour combination, I have turned the sketch sideways.:

Pals Paper Arts - Sketch challenge #264

Stampin' Royalty - Colour Challenge #291

This weekend I am using the "Watercolour Wings" stamp set from the Stampin Up 2015-16 Annual Catalogue.

The butterfly was stamped onto the Very Vanilla card in three layers: first stamp in Hello Honey (stamped off first), second stamp in full strength Hello Honey and the third stamp in Blackberry Bliss. Once the butterfly was stamped I cut the piece into 2cm strips and trimmed 1cm off each end of the first and third strips. It was attached with dimensionals to lift it off the background.

The Crumb Cake background was first stamped with the greeting in Crumb Cake ink and then embossed with the Lovely Lace embossing Folder.

Check out the archives for both of these sites for some great inspiration, not just the colours and sketches, but also the wonderful ideas that the design teams have provided.


  1. Great idea to use this pretty butterfly for this week's challenge. I love the tone-on-tone background! Thanks for joining us at the Pals Paper Arts this week.

  2. This is sooooo fun - I need to try this as the effect is just stunning. I loved that embossing folder that you really adds depth to this fabulous butter fly! Thanks for sharing your talent!
