Time Out challenges has got another fabulous challenge up and running for you and this fortnight we're being sponsored by DT member Shery and the wonderful Stamplorations !
Our theme for this challenge is "Celebrations" with the optional twist of adding butterflies and the prizes on offer are - 1 stamp set for the entry that has the twist (butterflies)
- 1 stamp set for the entry that has a STAMPlorations stamp (with or without the twist)
What more do you need to get you to enter?
For my card I decided to create my own butterfly using a variety of heart stamps that I had in my stash. When you put heart shapes on their side, they look like the wings of butterflies - well they do in my world anyway! I had been crafting with my 2 nieces over the weekend and they were getting very messy with all my inks and were using more than 1 colour on a stamp. When I saw how good it looked, I decided to try it out on this card so my inspiration came from a 6 year old and a 4 year old this week!
I decided to fussy cut around the edge of the wings on one side just to make it stand out a bit more and simply added a stamped sentiment and some black gems for the body of the butterfly.
Please excuse the poorly composed photos of recent posts but I have yet to make my lightbox and find a good window/light source to take my snaps. My previous homemade lightbox didn't survive the shipping and I just haven't got around to making another one yet - I'll add it to the list of things to do!
Entering this into the challenges at Through the Craftroom Door , Addicted to Stamps , Inky Impressions , Simon Says Stamp and Whimsy Stamps.
Thanks for stopping by!
