Here's my PDCC 87 challenge entry. This week's suggested colors are....
Slate Blue...Barn Red...Grey
This is really for all you wonderful people behind the PDCC - Thank you. Thank you for my win. Thank you for your fun challenges. Thank you for your inspiring work and friendly blog visits and comments. Thank you with all my heart.
ink: Stampin Up Basic Gray, Real Red, Not Quite Navy
Stamps: Stepping Stones Design
other: SU Smooch Spritz in Silver, spica pen - clear, SU rhinestones
punch: SU heart
I found the SU Gray too dark so I stamped off before stamping onto that paper ribbon - much better I reckon. I also had a lot of problem with the smooch spritz; I don't use it often so had trouble controlling the spray. This is the 3rd card and I figured it's probably good enough - not quite the "shape" I had in mind but near enough. Once I got started with the sparklies, I couldn't stop and so had to put a touch of spica and rhinestones on the butterfly...just for fun. ;)
For the focus heart, I stamped the butterfly on in blue before punching out (heart). Then I just sponged on red all around it. I stamped and cut out another butterfly and only adhered the middle bit for extra lift and dimension.
Anyway, to all you wonderful gals at PDCC
- including its talented community of challenge participants -
This card's for you.
