Papertrey Ink Blog Hop- Entry 2

Welcome to PTI Blog Hop Post #2!

In the interest of time, this one will be short and sweet.

  Using another color combo from Pinterest (eggplant, peach, and putty, which I translated to Plum Pudding, Melon Berry, and Soft Stone), my Movers and Shakers: Poppers dies and my Beautiful Butterflies set to create this card:

The "You" from "Simply You" was stamped with my Glue Pad and then heat embossed with Zing! Metallic Purple embossing powder. I also tried to do a monochromatic effect with Fresh Snow ink, and it's much more visible in the photo above. I stamped the shadow of the butterflies with Smokey Shadow ink.

For some reason, the butterflies in the interior are coming out much more orange than they are in real life. I think it looks like the butterflies are fluttering right out of the card! :)

Thanks for fluttering by to check out my submission!

  1. Oh, how I love the white on white stamped butterfly background! And that purple-y embossed 'You' is just bee-you-tiful! :)

  2. Thank you Jessica!! That new Simply You set is fantastic. I only wish the text were a little bit larger.
