I am so pleased to be doing the challenges on SCS. I also looked at the Clean and Simple blog and did the last challenge there. I have found that as a result of doing these challenges I have been able to do my cards much more quickly. It has really made me feel so much more creative, which I guess is the object of the exercise, hmmmm? I promise to change up my colors in the next days from Pink and the black and white card below is a start.
The butterfly image is an old Stampa Rosa stamp I purchased in the 90's when I first started stamping and it is still my favorite butterfly. I stamped the image in Versamark and heat embossed it with black embossing powder so that it would really pop. I also painted the butterfly wings with Pearl White Pearl EX to make them pop, and it looks sooooo much better in real life. I then crumpled the cardstock and flattened it out again then passed my black stamp pad over the whole piece and especially around the edges. The whole process took me just a few minutes.
