They just happen to be my favourite colours, so I have combined this week’s Stampin’ Up! Only Challenge of making a project featuring pinks and purples, with a new challenge that I have found on the blog fellow stamper Lesley Croghan at Always Playing with Paper. Lesley’s Challenge #2 is a sketch, (and I do so enjoy a sketch challenge:) ):
I have used one of the “Best of” sets that are only available for a few more weeks, in this case “Best of Butterflies“. I think this particular butterfly is just gorgeous.
I have stamped the butterfly in different shades of purple, then layered them from darkest to lightest, and added the pink layer to centre one. It’s a bit hard to see the layers in the photo so I have taken another one side on. And I do apologise for the colours in the photo, today has been rather a cloudy, dreary day here, so not much good for taking photos.
A fair bit of “fussy cutting” needed for this card, but I am one of those slightly odd people who find fussy cutting relaxing – a bit like paper piercing and watercolouring! 🙂
