It's time for some inspiration at STAMPlorations, and we're in the middle of a new stamp release, so it's a great excuse to use some of the new images and sentiments from the release.
The butterfly is from my new set, The Bee's Knees Winged Things, and the sentiment is from Deepti's new set, New Beginning.
The background panel has been in my stash for a while. At a guess, I'd say it involves a smooshing of modelling paste and some Distress Inks ;) Once I'd stamped and coloured my butterfly on mixed media paper, I added a touch of pink and yellow onto the background to tie everything together. Stamped a sentiment onto the scrap of mixed media paper, stapled it to the panel then mounted the panel to the card, added the fussy-cut butterfly and it's done.
I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Something New. The sentiment says it all, but it's also a new stamp set ;)
Mixed Media Monthly Challenge - Time Flies (time or flying)
Just Us Girls - Metal or Metallic (I've used staples, does that count?)
and Fusion, where I've picked a couple of the colours (magenta/yellow) and sort-of followed the sketch ;)
Don't forget about the Mixed Media Card Challenge, which is all about beginnings, with an option of sequins. Click here for all the details.
