Sweet Stamps Challenge 14 - Butterflies

Today is our fourteenth challenge on the Sweet Stamps blog.  Anyone can enter, but if you use a Sweet Stamps rubber stamp you get two entries into the challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree.  Our challenge  this week is ......

Butterflies


I started by stamping Sweet Stamps Bold Butterfly Large onto Cryogen white paper with Memento Tuxedo black ink.   I trimmed it out then used Copics YR61, BG11 and C1 to color the image.  This great DP is from Graphic 45 Le Cirque, one sheet, I used both sides.  For the oval panel, I used my Cheery Lynn Designs XL Inverted Oval Stackers die, adding the new Cheery Lynn Designs Ribbon Eyelet Border die with Piercing across the center. Next I added these new Cheery Lynn Designs Mini Exotic Butterfly dies,I love how lacy they are!   For a final touch I added little pearls with my light blue Viva Decor Pearl Pen.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches. 

Be sure to visit Sweet Stamps blog and see what the rest of the team has created for you.   And please join in on the fun!

Hi Sandy
Thanks for taking the time to let me know about the limit of 10 entries at Sweet Stamps. I'm pretty new to it all & am just working on a better system of filing & recording challenges & my entries so I can note all the diferent rules better, so hopefully I can make sure I know them better.
Thanks again - it is appreciated,
Deb.x
I love the challenge blog by the way & hope to enter regularly in future.x
