Dirty Girl Monthly Challenge

This month's Dirty Dozen and Dirty Dozen Alumni challenge is to case one of our first uploads to Splitcoaststampers...we were to change three things within our case--the sky's the limit! I decided to stick pretty close to my original which you can see here:

I used Confetti Cream, Always Artichoke and an unknown dp for the base of my card. The stamp sets here are Stampin' Up Stipple Butterfly and Itty Bitty Backgrounds. I stamped my butterfly on vellum, colored it with chalks and mounted it with dimensionals onto the decorator panel. I stamped the Itty Bitty's on the dp with Creamy Caramel ink to add a distressed look.

My new design follows: I used a large floral background paper (K and Company Classic K Margo) once again; this time with SU Not Quite Navy and Neenah Classic Cream. I added an extra layered panel; I stamped the same image (Stampin' Up Stipple Butterfly--I will NEVER get rid of this stamp!) onto Neenah Classic Cream with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Copic markers, then die cut it with Nestabilities Labels One. My brad is Basic Grey's Two Scoops. All layers were popped up with dimensional tape.


Please check out the other Dirty Girl's challenge uploads here. Have a great Friday!
