It is Wednesday and time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More …  Challenge #101 – Anything Goes!!!

I liked their Butterfly Background image so much that I used it again for this week’s challenge. Here is what I made …

Butterfly Background 2

This time I cut part of the image off to make it look as if the butterflies are flying off the edge. I coloured my butterflies using Promarkers and added some shading around them before partially blending the edges with distress inks. I added some faux stitching and layered my card as shown before finishing off by adding some crystal effects to my pink butterfly.

The slight texture on my base card is achieved by inking up a texture plate, placing my card onto it, pressing it down using a roller and lifting the printed card off.

Here is a reminder of the card I made a few weeks ago for Challenge #97 using the same Butterfly image …

ATSM Challenge 97

Hi Everybody,

Thanks so much for your lovely comments. They were all very much appreciated.

We had some fab entries last week. Thanks to everyone who entered, hope to see you again this week.

It is Wednesday again and time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More …  Challenge #97 – Make your Mark!!!

Another favourite of yours, and I am looking forward to seeing lots of your fabulous creations! Please take the time to check out the full details of the challenges and their rules, which can be found here.

Eureka Stamps is our new sponsor this week! The winner gets 3 digis. There are some fab images in their shop, you can check them out here.

 

Inspired by the butterfly in their logo, I made the following card using their Butterfly Background image …

Butterfly Background 1

I coloured the three larger butterflies using Promarkers (ivory, pastel beige and bluebell), layered onto a piece of Concorde Crush and then on my Natural Ivory base card (card stock by Stampin’Up!). I finished off by adding a matching blue chiffon ribbon (Fantastic Ribbons) and two sequins (from stash).

TIP: Colouring only part of your stamp adds extra depth.

I really like this Butterfly Background digi as it is very versatile, you can use it as is, chop it up like Danielle, decoupage some of the butterflies …
