Addicted to Stamps Challenge #144



Hi everyone ~ It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps, and our theme for this challenge is 'Clean & Simple'. Our Sponsor is Sweet Pea Stamps, and the prize for the winner is 4 digital images from their store! Here is my card:






The butterflies were stamped and colored with Copics. I tried to implement some of the techniques I learned from Kathy's 30 Day Color Challenge by using my '0' blender and used the partial die cutting technique for the top butterfly. I just bought this die cut sentiment from SSS, and thought it would be fun to use gold foil cardstock and show that my sentiment concludes on the inside of the card. Lastly, I splattered some gold shimmer spray for some sparkle, and, that's it!

I hope you'll find time to play along with us ~ We would love to see your card in the Addicted to Stamps Gallery

Thanks to Loll for the reminder, I would also like to enter this card in the Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge
 


Thanks for stopping by,

Your butterflies are GORGEOUS! Great colouring Barb. Love the partial die-cutting with the butterfly flying away at the top ... really adds so much movement to the card. I have tried partial die-cutting and failed miserable ... need a lesson from you! xx
