CSS Challenge Blog Hop

It's time for another Gina K Designs Center Stage Spotlight DT Challenge Blog hop!

Hostess: Jessica Fick (our lovely DT coordinator)
Challenge for this hop:
Stamp and color your image on Patterned Paper
     (ok to cut out and pop up the image as long as it was stamped and colored on PP first)
Requirement: Use any Gina K Designs stamp set and use **Glitter**
Bonus Challenge: Decorate the inside of your card to coordinate

So... with all of that in mind, here's the card I came up with - this was really hard for me to figure out - which image would show up and not fight with the patterned paper, and which patterned paper to use...




I needed a birthday card for a friend who loves butterflies, so I started playing with the butterfly from Gina K's Take Flight. I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch and stamped the butterfly on some SU! designer paper (with butterflies) then colored the stamped butterfly with my copics. This was the hard part - the colors changed since my base paper color was not white - but in all, it kind of deepened the color palette I was working with so it still coordinated.  I added my glitter on the butterfly wings with Sakura clear stardust pens then cut it out.  I actually stamped a 2nd butterfly on white CS and cut it out just a tiny bit bigger so that my colored butterfly would "pop" more. I added a sentiment from the Tag Lines set (also stamped directly on the patterned paper) and some pearls as embellies.



Finally, here's what I did on the inside: the sentiment is one I've had for ages and I use it a lot.
