The Pink Elephant, Arty Girlz and Stamp Something Challenges






I made this card following The Pink Elephant Challenge sketch, it also qualifies for the Stamp Something Challenge which is to use 3D, and the Arty Girlz Challenge which is to use butterflies :-) ( Thanks Jeanette) :-)
The butterfly stamp is from Magenta, I stamped it onto black card using white ink and embossed with opaque white EP, then coloured it with artquest interference paints. The vellum was stamped with white ink and I used holographic EP. The black card I used for mounting was glimmer misted with denim blue and meadow green.
As you can see I used black/grey coredinations which was cuttlebugged and sanded. The swirly design was cut out on my cricut. The DP is doodlebug.
Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
