I had a completely different card made for this challenge, but changed my mind and started over. That's what happens when I work ahead -- my stamping mood changes before the go-live date and then I'm scrambling last minute. So, this is what I ended up with -- Gerberas and butterflies in a garden-like setting.
Our mood board is very inspiring. Ohhhh, the colors! I was immediately attracted to the teal Swallowtail on yellow daisies, but the pink! The purple! The amber Monarchs on green! Sigh... All of these colors are represented by the DD team's beautiful samples.
We have butterfly dies for a random winner:
The team votes on favorites, too. All details are on the Double D blog.
I stamped the daisies in SU So Saffron ink on X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copics. The Butterflies were stamped in Memento London Fog. Since my flowers and the whole card are so soft, I toned down the color on the butterflies. The black and vibrant teal just didn't look right.
Power Poppy Dynamic Duos: Glads and Gerberas. Butterflies borrowed from Soothing Sympathy and Pure Prairie Spirit. Spellbinders Decorative Curved Square and Standard Circles Large and Small. Prima Annalee designer paper (retired, probably).
I hope you can play along! I'll be back to visit again soon. Till then, have a happy day!
