I have been trying to participate in some challenges on StampTV and a few others I have found while surfing around. I can not believe how many different challenges are out here! Wow! A lot more than I realized.
The card I am sharing today is for the Monday color challenge over at StampTv. The colors are Yellow, Orange, Red (optional) and any Neutral.
My colors are Barley Banana, Tangerine Tango and Gold vellum. The dp is Basic Grey's new Marrakech. The stamp set is Gina K's Take Flight. I stamped the butterfly on gold vellum using first Dried Marigold ink by Ranger and then versamark. I heat embossed it using Clear embossing powder. I curled up the edges of the wings a bit before I popped it up on the card. I added gold pearls for the body and the antenna tips. The sentiment was also stamped with Dried Marigold and versamark before heat embossing again using clear embossing powder. I punched the sentiment out using an SU oval punch and attached it to the center of the flower. The flowers are punched with Marvy punches.
I finished off the card with a couple of borders, pearls and ribbon.
