Do You Stack Up? Challenge #25

We have a color challenge this week at Do You Stack Up?
Yes, this is a little bit out of the ordinary, but if I can do it, you can do it!

We have two sponsors this week and they are:

  CoCo Dingo Stamps is giving four digital images

Whimsy Stamps is giving five digital images
These are great prizes, so get busy creating so you can get in the challenge!! Hurry!
I chose a beautiful image by CoCo Dingo Stamps called "Butterfly in Lavender".  I think you will agree.

Did you notice all the shine in the snippet picture at the top of this post?  I used some Glossy Accents on the butterfly body and Purple Stickles on the lavender. I painted the image with Ranger Distress ink first of course.  The butterfly additionally has gold Ranger Perfect Pearls painted on the wings.

I went the extra mile and made a mask for the image so I could do a resist technique on the background.  I clear embossed a script stamp and then sponged Tattered Rose & Spun Sugar distress inks.

Challenges appropriate for this card:
Bearly Mine - summer is here
Bee Crafty - summer's here
Fab n Funky - summer lovin
Crafty Creations - let it shine
CES - lots of sparkly flowers
Delicious Doodles - things that flutter
