I kept hoping that my new stamps would arrive in time for me to use them with this challenge. They did and I spent quite a lot of the weekend playing with these colours and the playful little set No Bones About It. I'll share the best of those attempts later in this post. I liked it, but not enough to put it in as my guest designer offering.
I woke up on Sunday morning with this idea and I think it shows off the colours well.
I intended to emboss the words in white embossing powder, but accidentally grabbed the clear instead. I liked it that way and left it as it was. The butterfly was stamped in Basic Gray and coloured in shades of Delightful Dijon, highlighted at the wingtips with silver gel pen, then given a coat of Glossy Accents, which brought out the colour more.
And here's my effort using the same colours and No Bones About It. I also used the new embossing folder Elegant Dots, to make a faux reptilian pattern on the grey cardstock. I like the ink-smooshed background - it's kind of reminiscent of primordial forest and sunlight, I think.
