Stamp Man Challenge blog- Challenge 2- Take 2 colours (DT card)

The Stampman

This fortnight's theme at The Stamp Man challenge blog is Take 2 Colours. Here's my take on it!

Pink and purple are not usually colours I work with, but I really enjoyed going extra bright. The butterflies and flowers are stamped with Distress inks in Dusty Concord and Worn Lipstick, on a background created using the same colours watered down. It's hard to pick up from the picture, but the purple card I matted the main image onto has been stamped with the butterfly wings. Hang on, I'll try an extreme close up.... 

OK, you can see it a bit better. The main butterfly was inked up with the 2 colours, then spritzed with a little water to blend them slightly.

Finishing touches were lots of gems and lots of eyelets and ribbon.

  1. Hi Lisa - beautiful shades of pinks and purples, and the Stamp Man butterfly image is fabulous. Love the addition of the eyelets and ribbons too.
