Sweet Candy Love Butterfly


At DRS Designs, this week's challenge is a color challenge based on sweet candy hearts.

 
The Design Team cards are soooo pretty - you need to check them out. 


I promise my pinks really did start out matching the colors in the color block a lot better than they do in this picture.  The sponge I used for my pink sun rays had some yellow on it as did my stencil so the pink has a little yellow tint.  I call this adventurous creating, but really it is being too lazy to get a clean sponge or clean the sponge or buy more sponges or be careful with the sponge. 

I die cut my butterfly and sponged it and then I stamped, sponged and cut out two Ornate Corner Tile images to put on the butterfly.  My sentiment is Hugs and Kisses Valentine's Greeting

These colors are so perfect for Valentine's.  Hope you will come play in the challenge too.

  3. This sounds like a post I would have written. The sponge drama - the life and times of a lazy artist. Ha ha ha... Personally, I think the yellow tint really goes here and makes the card look so cool! Love that it has a slight vintage vibe. What a cool design with the rays and I so love this layered butterfly! Gorgeous!!!

  7. A beautiful card Nancy, a fabulous background and gorgeous butterfly - such an inspired idea to use your ornate corners to decorate the butterfly.
    I buy a huge bag of make-up sponges from our £ shop, they work out at about 5p each so I can have one for each colour ink.

  11. Wow, those ornate corners on the butterfly are very creative. And not cleaning the stencil only added character to your beautiful creation.

    Lots of love,
