Butterfly Wishes for As You See It Challenge #236

It's another As You See It Challenge Friday and this time we are doing a Speed Stamping Challenge with the theme of Butterflies. Stampin' Up! has some really nice stamp sets with butterfly images, I just had to decide ahead of time how I wanted to display them. 

What came to mind was a sponged strip near the top of the card, masked by two torn strip edges of paper. Then I intended to collage stamp my butterflies over top of the sponged strip.

  • I should have taken into account how tricky these particular DistINKtive stamps were to get a good image, because even though I did a test stamp first on scrap paper, I didn't get a good image when I tried to stamp it again on the sponged strip.
  • So scrambling like crazy, I stamped the two butterflies again on Whisper White cardstock, and with no punch or die available, fussy cut both of them. Then I mounted them with dimensionals over the previous images, but was able to use the antennae of the previously stamped images, instead of having to fussy cut them out.
  • The three ink colours that I sponged the strip at the top with were: Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz and So Saffron.
  • The butterflies are stamped in Mango Melody and Pool Party.
  • I added some bocca dots effects using the stamp from the Beauty Abounds stamp set inked up in Pear Pizzazz.
  • The sentiment is from Butterfly Wishes and was stamped in Pool Party.
