Purple and Orange

There are two challenges going on right now at Simon Says Stamp:

Monday's challenge:  A Trio of Something

Wednesday's challenge:  Happy Birthday

To make the butterflies, I stamped them first on white paper using VersaFine Black Onyx ink.  Then I stamped a Spiced Marmalade ink pad directly on my non-stick craft mat and spritzed it with some water.  Next, I swiped the butterflies through the wet ink then manually cut them out.

I decided to use the orange paper on the card since this will be a birthday card for my sister who has a birthday in the Fall.

Products used:  Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Fall paper pack, Impression Obsession French Text background stamp, Hero Arts Traditional Butterfly, Sue Wilson Stitched Flags, Distress inks.

It's hard to believe Simon Says Stamp is celebrating their 9th birthday already.  

Thanks for stopping by ~ Ann
