Here's my entry for the Sunday Stampers Challenge 103 on the theme of RED. I vaguely followed Hels piece with sections of colour and t!m's stamps.

The backgrounds are made with the mopping technique using Barn Door, Fired Brick and Worn Lipstick distress inks with a hint of Vintage Photo and sprayed with gold perfect pearls. The stamping is Versafine Sepia, the butterfly is gold embossed and some of the background has been embossed in a numbers folder.

I made a similar card a month of so ago for a friend's birthday - she teaches maths so I thought the numbers were appropriate, she likes butterflies and her favourite place is Dartmoor so I used greens and browns with a hint of blue.

Which leads me to the question of what you all do with your art made for challenges? Do you keep them in a box? Do you hang them on your wall? Do you give them away? Let me know!


  1. Gorgeous piece of art Elaine, thanks for joining in with the challenge hun x

  2. That's pretty funny, I chose the same stamp set you used! And I hadn't even looked at your entry yet! Just a great card, love the background technique, and the colors are fabulous!
