New Challenge at The Stamp Man

Hello again, this is my second post today ! It's a day of changes as over at The Stamp Man we're moving to a monthly challenge starting on the first of the month. The challenge starting today is Butterflies, bees and bugs. Make sure you hop over to the main blog to find out all about the new look and also check out the rest of the DT's fabulous work.

The card I'm sharing with you today is a birthday card for a friend whose birthday is tomorrow. I started with the background and used a stamp from the Tim Holtz Fabulous Flourishes set and stamped with white acrylic paint. I then used Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers and Seedless Preserves DI and blended it over the top and then wiped over the top with a damp piece of kitchen roll. I then blended more of the same colours onto white CS and stamped it with the text stamp from the Tim Holtz French Marketplace set and the used Peacock Feathers DI to stamp the honeycomb from the Mixed Media stamp set.

The butterfly stamp is also a Tim Holtz stamp which I've stamped over the top of the text. The flower is made from Crinoline using the Mini Tattered Flowers die and the centre is from the Ideaology Foliage.

I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge and as it's open for the month of October you've got plenty of time !
