A Color Challenge

March is kicking off over at H2H with a color challenge.

These colors at first sight may remind some of Fall, specifically Halloween, but I used the colors to come up with a more spring-y project.


I used Creme Brulee cardstock as my base and then created the polka-dot pattern using Colonial White cardstock, Creme Brulee ink, a pencil eraser and a ruler.  Super easy and such a fun pattern.

I stamped the butterfly (B1210-Flutter) onto black cardstock and then again onto the Gypsy polka-dot pattern paper and cut out only the wing sections then pasted them onto the black butterfly.

I folded up his wings a bit for some dimension.  The buttons are from my stash and I used a copic marker to color the Colonial White ric-rac to match.
My card is inspired by Stephanie Day.


Paper:  Creme Brulee, Colonial White and Black cardstock.  Patterned paper (Gypsy dot) from Hooligans.  Manila parcel tag.

Inks:  Bamboo for distressing, Gypsy to stamp butterfly, Copic V17

Stamps:  TLC (C1364 sentiment), Flutter (B1210)

Embellishments:  Paper doily from Walmart, buttons and lace ribbon from my stash, Colonial White ric-rac, Natural hemp.
