Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator stampwithpeg : WWC76 – Penny’s Clean & Simple Butterfly Theme Challenge
I really enjoyed taking part in ‘Pootles’ colour challenge this week so had a look round at other challenges. I have had a look at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge a few times but not been brave enough to take part but after doing my first one it gave me the courage to do more.
I love stamping butterflies but have not done much with them for a while so this challenge was right up my street, the criteria was:
A single stamped layer or a base with a single stamped layer, no embellishments, die cuts or anything else apart from stamping. Heat embossing allowed but not embossing folders.
There is a different challenge each week starting on a Wednesday. Click on the picture below to go to the challenge:
For my card I used a base of Sweet Sugarplum, and a Whisper White layer, I started my stamping with 2 stamps from The Timeless Textures stamp set, the leafy pattern up the right hand side and dotted pattern across the bottom stamped in Smoky Slate (stamped off first).
I added flowers in Sweet Sugarplum using the Number of Years stamp set, these were directly stamped and stamped off to give the different shades, I also used the same colour for my sentiments (Sheltering Tree and Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp sets)
Finally I added my favourite stamped butterfly in Dapper Denim which is from the Grateful Bunch stamp set. I just love this butterfly I think it makes a statement each time I use it.
I hope that I have got the brief right, I am still a novice at these challenges :), I am enjoying taking part and anyone can take part so why not give it a go, I love to see everyone’s interpretation of these challenges and all the fabulous cards that enter.
