#TGIF158- Color Challenge and Birthday Celebration!

Hey Everybody! I am sneaking in with a last minute post for the TGIF Challenge Design Team! This is usually my off week for the challenge but, Guess What?! May is TGIF's birthday month and this particular challenge marks the team's third birthday! This week is a really fun week for you to play along with us because not only do we have a great color challenge but we've got prizes (all you have to do for a chance to win is to comment on our blogs)! The ultimate prize... The winner of this week's challenge will get the chance to be a guest designer on the TGIF Challenge team! Pretty darn cool so don't miss out. 


Our color challenge for the week is Basic Black, Berry Burst and LemonLime Twist. I decided to go dark and a bit grungy with a pop of color.

I started out by watercoloring a piece of watercolor paper in Berry Burst. Then I used a stamp from the Timeless textures set to heat emboss some flourishes in black. I also spattered black ink on the butterfly and added clear embellishments for the body.

I layered the butterfly over a background of stamping (craft white grid pattern), ribbon, DSP, washi tape and die cuts. I didn't have much time to pull this card together so I was happy that it came together fairly easily.

  4. I really like the black background, it just makes that butterfly "fly" right off the cardstock.
