it is time for another Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge. I have to tell you, I found this one to be a really big challenge! Ready to see it?
Before I show you what I made I have to tell you a story about this week's challenge. If you don't already know this I tend to do things at the last minute. I have been trying to get better at this and so last week I decided to get my challenge card done early. I was so proud of myself! I posted the card to the designer's site and a few days later I decided to write up the blog post. I pulled out the card and realized that I used the wrong colors! I quickly deleted the picture and had to start all over again. I guess I really did not want to use the colors in the challenge.
I inked the Watercolor Wash background stamp in Smoky Slate and stamped it on Crumb Cake card stock. The Smoky Slate swirly piece was cut using the a die from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits which will be debuting in the 2016-17 Stampin' Up! catalog. The butterfly was cut using the Bold Butterfly framelits in Basic Gray. I embossed the butterfly using Iridescent Ice embossing powder. I thought the card needed a little sparkle since the colors are all neutral. Along the edge I used a strip of patterned paper from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack.
I hope you will stamp along with the Create with Connie and Mary challenge. Be sure to check out what the other members of the design team created. They are brilliant and created some fabulous cards.
