Paper Makeup Challenge!!


Ok, so I was surfing again and came across this great site with these really awesome stamps. (I have quite a few in my cart!) And checked out the blog. Well, they are running a challenge and I just had to try it. The challenge was to create a card with pink and gray. I rarely get to use these colors because I have only boys surrounding me here. So, I went to work. I knew I wanted to make a simple looking card so I decided to go easy on the embellishments. I started by choosing a silver sheet of cardstock for the base and the pink was a sheet of DCWV from the Luxury Stack. I found a couple of SU! stamp sets to use. The first set was Butterfly of Happiness and I chose the quote. I used Jet Black Stazon on a transparency and attached it with two tiny silver brads. The other set was Upsy Daisy and I stamped it on the silver cardstock using my Tsukineko glue pad and went old school and used Flamingo Pink Pearl Ex to create the pink flowers. I love them!! I added some sheer silver ribbon and went to work on my little butterfly. I brayered on Pink Ink glimmer mist and stamped a clear butterfly stamp by Martha Stewart using SU! basic gray classic ink. I love the effect of the shimmery butterfly. Hope you enjoy this card as much as I do.
