Textured Butterflies

After watching the video for Make It Monday's Challenge #116 to add texture to your stamps, I knew Beautiful Butterflies was the set to use! I actually don't have a combo like Betsy used in the video (the teeth on my comb are too wide and thick to get sort of pattern), so instead I used a scrap piece of card to scratch patterns on to the stamps. I used the sketch from Mojo Monday's Challenge #293 and the colours from Play Date Cafe's Challenge #183. I'm not a fan of Bravo burgundy at all and am glad it's finally being retired, but actually it does look quite nice with these other colours.

And here's my card.


Stamps: Beautiful Butterflies, Signature Greetings II, Happy Hexagons all from Papertrey Ink

Papers: Baja Breeze, Bravo Burgundy, Whisper White, In Color 2010-12 DSP Stack (Retired) all from Stampin' Up

Inks: Baja Breeze, Bravo Burgundy, Poppy Parade (Retired) all from Stampin' Up

Accessories: Happy Hexagons Plate, Limitless Layers 1 3/4" Circle Dies, Doily Details Dies all from Papertrey Ink, Bravo Burgundy 1/4" & 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbons (Retired), Baja Breeze Striped Grosgrain Ribbon (Retired), Poppy Parade Ribbon (Retired) all from Stampin' Up

And that's all from me for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!
