SCS Challenges

Love'em! The disappointing thing is that I haven't done one in almost a YEAR! Color challenge CC168 and sketch challenge SC178. Honestly, I wasn't much inspired by either one but it could be, too, that I haven't been stamping consistently for several months. I'm pretty rusty.

This is a typical 4.25 X 5.5. The background on the Sage Shadow was stamped using Basic Brown with the Tres Chic BG stamp, then layered onto Chocolate Chip and a Very Vanilla base. Using the Marvy scallop punches, I punched the square out of Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla. The vanilla square was stamped with the swirl from Priceless using Basic Brown. The chocolate square is dotted using my fave Sakura Stardust Clear Gel Pen. The butterfly from Priceless was stamped on vanilla in sage shadow, cut and adhered to the vanilla square. I dyed a piece of white grosgrain ribbon using my sage shadow classic spot and wrapped around a piece of chocolate punch with my new threading water punch by Fiskars, again dotted with the clear gel pen. The flowers were cut using a Cuttlebug die with a pearl brad in the center. The three flowers are centered around the word "imagine". Oh, and some DD on the butterfly, too. ;)
