Out of my Comfort Zone!

Hi All,

My favourite colours when I was little - were purple and cerise pink; but now, when I stamp, I generally feel more comfortable using 'earthy' colours.

That was until, I spied this bag of Jenny's and squealed in delight!! I really thought it was a bag from SU.......LOL..........(SU's always on the brain!)

The larger butterflies remind me of the new single stamp in the 'mini' catalogue and I just fell in love with it. Of course, Jenny being Jenny, said I must keep it and she would go back to the shop to get another one!! She is always so kind and generous - I did say I'd use it as inspiration; a sort of 'colour challenge'

What do you think?.........Those pink and purple butterflies are a perfect match to 'Melon Mambo' and 'Rich Razzleberry' (the new colours in October). As I don't have them yet, these are the colours I've chosen for my challenge:
  • Rose Red
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Green Galore
  • Elegant Eggplant

The butterfly I stamped as before (in a previous post), but this time - cut the wings completely off before attaching to the card. I also pearlised the card with 'Champagne' shimmer paint before stamping it. I've added 'Crystal Effects' to give dimension to the body and glass gems (non SU) to the flowers.

Hope you've enjoyed my attempts at being 'bold' - give it a go.
I'd love to see what anyone else comes up with
Happy Crafting
