Paisley Butterfly!!


Have you ever done an Inspiration Challenge on SCS before?? They post an image or a piece of artwork or a pretty pattern on something and ask you to create a card inspired by that image. Well, this week I joined in on my first Inspiration Challenge and it was fun!!

This week's challenge IC71, was called 'Unmentionables' because the Inspiration was a Fruit of the Loom ad which was a 'butterfly' made from different pairs of their new ladies underwear line!! Isn't that a hoot!! So funny!! Go here to see the pic!!

I LOVE butterflies so I had to find time to play with this challenge!! And I had the perfect butterfly stamp to use....a new Pink Cat Studio stamp!! So I stamped the Paisley Butterfly on shimmery white paper with black Stazon ink and then, with this yummy new ribbon from Michael's $ spot in mind, I chose my colours from there. I used my SU markers to colour in the image with Sage Shadow, Pretty in Pink and Almost Amethyst. I punched it out using the Mega Circle Punch and then punched a layer of Sage Shadow with the Giga Scalloped Circle Punch to put it on. I sponged the edges of the scalloped piece and also around the SS square which I mounted on a square card. I stamped the matted SS piece with a matching Paisley stamp and mounted it on the card base, adding the pretty ribbon, an Almost Amethyst photo corner and some tiny Prima flower with Icicle Stickles in the centres. I stamped the 'Thinking of You' sentiment with a Michael's $ acrylic stamp in black and went over it with a Stardust pen and also added some Stardust to the butterfly image. Not sure how well you can see it in the photo, but it really shimmers in real life!!
