Vera came up with the great colour combination of orange, blue and olive green for this week's PaperPlay Challenge. Whiff of Joy Stamps is kindly sponsoring the challenge and the prize is this adorable Christmas stamp.
A little while ago when Hero Arts was hosting the OWH Virtual Card Making Weekend, Sue came up with a couple of fun games to add even more enjoyment to the weekend. I was lucky to have been randomly picked as one of the winners and Sue very generously sent me the gorgeous butterfly set as well as a host of other wonderful goodies. She also sent me this absolutely stunning card which I love so much! Thanks again Sue for everything!
Stamps (Hero Arts) - Butterflies (3 images), Birthday Messages & Old Letter Writing.
I applied spiced marmalade distress ink to the butterflies and using the same ink stamped them with the Old Letter Writing stamp. Then I applied Crackle Accents (love this stuff!) to parts of the butterflies' wings and added blue gems to the bodies. I applied broken china and faded jeans distress inks onto some watercolour paper for the sky. For the ground, I lightly applied shabby shutters distress ink on watercolour paper, clear embossed a lot of sentiments from the Birthday Messages set and applied more shabby shutters. The twine was originally white and I coloured it with broken china distress ink.
I hope you'll join us on PaperPlay this week!
I'm sorry I haven't been around much lately but I have a lot of things going on at the moment. Hopefully everything will settle down soon!
