I've been wanting to join in the challenges over at Uniko Studio for a while and thought I would try and kill two birds with one stone. It's been a real challenge! I pondered over Louise's sketch and decided to use one of Bev's trailing vine stamps, but then couldn't find an ink pad to match 'Calypso Coral' from amongst my stash anywhere! It got really complicated as I only have a small collection of Uniko Studio stamps at the moment and definitely don't have anything that remotely resembles 'Things With Wings'...hmmm!
So after some thought, I set about creating butterflies from one of the 'Flower Power' sets using the half flower, experimenting with stamping two of the three petals and then trying to create a mirror image. I think they turned out OK and have got a few spares to use another time. I cut them out and mounted on foam pads adding some adhesive pearls and stamping a few tiny flowers and dots from the vine set in the challenge colours along with a sentiment also from the 'Flower Power' set.
I hope that Louise thinks I have been true enough to her sketch and that Bev approves of my butterfly creations.
Stamp sets: Background Builders - Vines & Flower Power #2 (Uniko Studio)
Ink pads: Pacific, Smoke Blue (Versa Color) & Orange (Whispers)
Snippets: White adhesive pearls
Next month it will be my turn to host the CC&S challenges. I can't wait to share my colours and sketches with you and hope you'll continue to play along!
