Bold Butterfly

One of the things I enjoy doing is combining a sketch challenge with a color challenge.  Today I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge and the colors from the Color Throwdown Challenge to make this bold butterfly design.  For the challenge colors I used Bermuda Bay for the teal, Tangerine Tango for the orange and, of course, Basic Black for the black.  :-) 

For the butterfly, using the Butterflies Thinlits Dies, I cut one from Bermuda Bay, one from Tangerine Tango and one from Whisper White.  Using a blending tool, I blended color over the Whisper White butterfly.  I used Bermuda Bay and Tangerine Tango ink.  Then, I covered it with VersaMark and heat embossed it using Clear Embossing Powder.  After embossing, I glued the three butterflies together.  I used Bermuda Bay sequins on the body of the butterfly to add more dimension.

For the card base I used Whisper White Thick cardstock.  The rectangle layer was made placing a piece of Whisper White over a piece of Basic Black.  The two small banners were punched from Bermuda Bay and Tangerine Tango using the Triple Banner Punch.

The sentiment from the Jar of Love stamp set and the antennae from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set were stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
