. . . and new-to-me stamps and a stencil!
I have been in my craft room today playing with color challenge #507 from the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge Blog. These aren't colors I would usually put together and the challenge's rules that you have to use only the three colors with their permitted neutrals provided just the right amount of mental gymnastics and problem solving for me today.
I had to think of what might only use the three colors and chose the Penny Black Social Butterfly stamp I recently used from bought in a Restash group. I was surprised to see it was released in 2012!! Then I inked up PTI's Weather Tile Stencil (on sale through the end of August) with the trio of challenge colors and a little Delicata Golden Glitz pigment ink. There is a shimmer to the background in a few spots, even though it doesn't show in the photo. The main butterfly is heat embossed in black before the colors were blended and popped up with foam tape. The sentiment is from Pinkfresh. A few clusters of clear sequins finished off the card. I love how this turned out! Butterflies are not my "go-to" - but I do love polka dots!! This stamp set has more than one beautiful butterfly - I know I will bring it out again.
