This week's challenge on Dynamic Duos was to use the colors of Black and Daffodil Delight. It was definitely a challenge for me this week. I've never put these two colors together, other than for a bumble bee.
Momento's "Tuxedo Black" Ink
Stampin' Up's "French Script"
Stampin' Up's "Thoughts and Prayers" stamp set
Stampin' Up's sentiment "just because I care" -- I couldn't find which stamp set it came from...sorry.
Black card stock from local scrapbook store
White card stock from Gina K
Stampin' Up's "Label Collection" die cuts
EK Success butterfly punch
Black ribbon from Michaels
DMC floss from local store
Button from Stampin' UP collection
I started with a black card base and then mounted "DD" card stock. I inked up "French Script" with "DD" ink and made a watermark effect on the "DD" card stock. I used Gina K's White card stock and again inked up the "French Script" stamp with "DD" and off stamped it once and then onto the white cs. I inked up the tree stamp with "Tuxedo Black" ink and used one of the dies and cut out the tree image. I punched out 3 butterflies with an old punch and added some tiny pearls to each butterfly. I also sponged around the edges and sponged lightly over the cut image with "DD". I mounted the butterflies with pop dots and pop dotted the image, too, and put a black ribbon behind it. I cut out a flag from left over Gina K cs and added the "just because I care" sentiment in "Tuxedo Black" and sponged around the edges with "DD" and also off stamped "French Script" on the flag. I pop dotted the flag to the card and finished the flag off by adding a button with black DMC floss to one end with a pearl center and the third punched butterfly to the other end. Thank you Dynamic Duos Team for making me think outside the box. Thanks for stopping by.
