Happy Day

... as I am easing my way back into crafting after the house move.

Hi All,

My room is mainly up and running now and I had to take a break from organizing the house to do some crafting. A little birdie in the name of Shery told me that STAMPlorations are sponsoring the Less Is More challenges in June. As one of them is coming to an end today I thought I'd have to sneak a card in quickly for their colour challenge - Purple.

Here it is:

I was working with STAMPlorations current Stamp Club set called Gone Postal and combined it with the script from Mixed Media Elements and a sentiment from Blossom Overture.

I stamped the postage stamp frame and masked the frame bit before stamping my butterflies in black Memento. I then used Pastel Violet and light Violet Tinge Markers to colour my butteflies and LV1 Spectrum Noir to colour the frame. Next I stamped my sentiment and the script in Elegant Eggplant using generational stamping to create more depth. I finished off with some Elegant Eggplant spritzing, a touch of sivler gel pen on my frame and a gem on my butterfly.

That's it from me for now.

Have a lovely weekend!

  1. Fab card! I love the slightly grungey feel from the spritzing and script stamp. The butterflies are so pretty with the colouring inside the frame. Great LIM entry :)

  2. Great card, Monika. Love the idea of the spotlight of colour.
