Color Challenge 09-16-08

This week's Color Challenge was to use Always Artichoke, Creamy Caramel and Regal Rose. I also decided to use Beate's new weekend sketch challenge. I started with a 5.5x11" piece of Alaways Artichoke folded in half. I stamped the edge of this with Artichoke ink and the outline Butterfly stamp from the set "Flight of the Butterfly" (#111564 $31.95). Next I cut a piece of Creamy Caramel at 4.75x4.75" and a piece of Regal Rose at 2x3.5". The regal rose piece was stamped with the flowery butterfly in Regal Rose ink. I only inked the flowers on this and not the body of the butterfly to create the background.

I then stamped the base butterfly on a scrap of whisper white with creamey caramel. I did stamp off first. Then I used my stamp-a-ma-jig and stamped the outline butterfly with Artichoke ink and the stamp-a-ma-jig again for the flowers in regal rose ink. (Again, I did not ink the body for this step.) I cut out the butterfly and added some dimensionals to the back.

This pic is kind of blury.... but you can see that I placed one dimensional in the middle and then doubled up the dimensionals under the wings of the butterfly to give it some extra dimension. Finally, I stamped the sentiment with Artichoke ink on the caramel square, stamped the small buterfly with caramel ink across the bottom and assembled as shown.

I hope you enjoy this card! I was really happy with how it came out!! Don't forget to check out the blogs of the other "Color Girls", listed on the right, for more inspiration!!
