Let's Ink It Up

Hi Folks
Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Let's Ink It Up.   Thank you for all the wonderful entries for the last challenge.  You make it very difficult to choose the Top 3.

The challenge for this month is a nice easy one for you all.
The only difficulty you may have is deciding what embellishments you need to leave off as I am sure we all have a long list of favourites lol.

We have a fabulous sponsor this time around.

Fay from Kitty Lane has generously offered this super prize package to our winner.  

So what are you waiting for.  But please remember that your focal image must be a rubber stamp, digi stamps are not permitted and any entries using a digi will be deleted.

Here's what I created using a lovely stamp from Kitty Lane.

I stamped and embossed the image onto white card. I then used distress inks to colour the background and coloured the butterflies using a Sakura pen.  I then generously dusted the butterflies and the centre of the flowers with glamour dust.  The backing paper is from a First Edition Paper Pack called Dreamcatcher.  This one has lovely silver foiling on it.  My embellishments are all my fav things, gems, ribbon, bows, butterflies and pins.  The two chipboard butterflies were a recent purchase and I just love them.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
A Gem of a Challenge - use inspiration photo
Fashionista - Simply summer
Ladybug Crafts Ink - Something with wings
Hooked On Craft - All that glitters
LEJ Designs - Ribbons Galore
Paperplay - Double Delight (chipboard butterflies, pins)
Little Miss Muffet - Rainbows, clouds or wings
Crazy 4 Challenges - Add butterflies
Secret Crafter Saturday - Anything goes
Crafters Companion - Time to embellish
Catch the Bug - Anything goes
Divas By Design - Anything goes
Love to Create - Add a sentiment
Kaboodle Doodles - Anything goes
Crafty Sentiments - Anything goes

Thanks for popping by and hope that you will pop over to Let's Ink It Up and check out the fab projects from the rest of the design team.  Looking forward to seeing all your entries.
Take care.
