Here is another card from a challenge set over on www.inlovewithstamping.com/forum our fab new website for inspiration and all things Stampin' Up! The challenge was to make a card using set colours: Orchid Opulence, Elegant Eggplant and Certainly Celery.
I used Very Vanilla for a card base and VersaMarked the leaf image from the Touch of Nature stamp set randomly over this to make a watermark effect. The words were stamped in Basic Grey Ink and the large butterfly was overlaid using the 'stamping off' technique (ink up your stamp as usual but before placing on you final position stamp off some of the colour on a scrap piece of paper. this produces a faded image when stamped again)
The edges of the Eggplant and Orchid card were punched with the Spiral Punch and the Celery and Vanilla were ripped. Add a touch of Celery Grosgrain ribbon and you are done.
(Not strictly SU but the small butterflies were stamped onto Shrink Plastic - same stamp as before - and heated with my heat gun till they are shrunk! These were attached with glue dots...)
Thanks for looking,
