Today at the Paper Players Nance Leedy has a fun theme challenge for us:
I took a piece of the cardboard box from my last Stampin’ Up! order and ran it through my Big Shot with the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die. I then peeled off the top layer of the cardboard to expose the ridges in the middle, and painted it with some white acrylic paint and then sprinkled on some Silver Glass Stampin’ Glitter. I dyed a flower from the 5/8″ Flower Trim with some Pink Pirouette ink and adhered it to the center of the butterfly.
Here’s a test for you to see how observant you are. I made a careless mistake on this card. Can you figure out what I did wrong? I didn’t even notice it until I was photographing the card. You get a star for the day if you guessed that the text on the background dsp is upside down. Ugggh! I hate it when I do things like that, and unfortunately it isn’t a rare occurrence. I’d already spent too much time on this card, and couldn’t face redoing it, so it is what is.
I hope you can join us in the challenge this week at the Paper Players. I’d love to see what you recycle. Want to see what the rest of the design team did? You can check them out here:
