Two Challenges, One Card!

Did you see the great sketch over on SCS today? I love sketches, and this one is particularly nice because it's a simple one that you can really dress up. I also looked at today's Color Throwdown Challenge and really liked the colors they chose (lavender lace, so saffron, and garden green), so I decided to incorporate both challenges into one card. This is what I came up with.

This is a Rachelle Anne Miller stamp from Stampavie called Peek-a-Boo. I purchased this a while back and never inked it up! It was just sitting there waiting for today. When I saw the CTD colors, I knew I had a SU dp that would work with these colors. I found a retired one, Uptown, and also a current one, Tea Party, that both fit the bill. Uptown, however, had this great garden green piece that I fell in love with, so I chose to use it. I kept mostly to the saffron and green because my image had so much purple in it. (I'm not a real big fan of purple, but I can tolerate it in small doses!) I colored the little guy with copics that I matched up pretty closely, and only used those three colors. I didn't want to introduce any other colors because it is a color challenge! I'm not real crazy about my coloring on this...the dark colors are difficult for me to shade! I gave it a little bit of dimension by putting the butterfly up on dimensionals, and I added star dust stickles for that special sparkle I love!

Thanks for stopping in today. Hope you've had a great hump day! Not much longer until the weekend! :-)
