Daffodil Throwdown

Hi there! Earlier, Laurie and I were talking about needing to get out of a little stamping funk, so we decided to have a little throwdown between us. The challenge was to use the new Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso and one other color of our choice. For my optional color, I chose Wild Wasabi.

I started by stamping the butterflies in Early Espresso, then coloring with Copic markers and painting with a mixture of diamond glaze and glitter.  Next I stamped the notebook paper from Blue Skies three times and cut them out, adding a butterfly trail in Wild Wasabi.  I still hadn't used my new Tim Holtz ticket strip die, so I Tim Holtz ticket strip diedecided to pull it out, then stamped  the flourish in daffodil and the sentiment in early espresso and inked up the edges for some definition. 

I finished off with some daffodil taffeta a couple little buttons and a burlap embossed background in early espresso.  Okay, that wraps up my throwdown, be sure to check out Laurie's card over on her blog.

What's In It?
Stamps: Blue Skies (Verve Stamps)
Paper: Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight (SU!)
Ink: Early Espresso, Wild Wasabi (SU!)
Accessories: button, linen string, diamond glaze, glitter, daffodil delight, Burlap texture fades, ticket strip die (Tim Holtz)
