ISC Flowers & Butterfly Challenge


I really love my Innovative Stamp Creations stamps and when I saw this challenge out I knew I had the perfect stamps to play along! I love the butterfly from the Oriental Nature Elements set and stamped it with colored ink instead of black, adding stickles to give it some sparkle and shimmer.
For the background I stamped the small duo of flowers from the Flowers and Elements set over and over on glossy paper in black ink. Then I used my sponges to dab on various colors of Palette ink, blending and smearing as I went. I figured my flowers were special too and added stickles to their centers also. I LOVE LOVE LOVE how the background came out so vibrant and colorful! Wouldn't you love to fall into a field of flowers like this? I know I would!
I added a touch of sparkly ribbon (recycled from a gift I got) and added it to a green card base.

ETA: Pinky commented and told me about Sir Stampalot which also has a challenge this month for Butterflies & Blossoms so I am adding the link here for you to all check it out and giving their Mr. Linky my link too! BE SURE TO CHECK Sir Stampalot out!

hugs,
