Shhh...don't tell that ol' Murphy! I have been so on top of things this week that I have been able to spend lots of time creating and blurfing! In doing so, I found a fun new challenge blog, Hand Stamped Sentiments.
This card is for their first color challenge...to use Basic Grey, Tempting Turquoise, Rich Razzleberry, and Dusty Durango together.
Admittedly, I am not a huge fan of turquoise, but this combo has made me view it in a different light! I think I am in love!
The butterfly is popped off and finished with Stickles and Crystal Effects. I did the same for the 2 little ones on the left side.
In order to give this some interest, I used Versamark with a different stamp on each of the panels (which are all scraps, by the way!). By far, my favorite panel was the turquoise one. I crumpled it up, flattened it, sanded it, and then stamped my main image in different directions all over it. It added just that needed flair without taking away from my main focus, which was the butterfly!
