Twofer Card Challenge, A Sketch Challenge and some Butterflies

Hello everyone!! I hope you are all staying cool today. It is very hot and humid today in CT, two of my not favorite things. I did make it out for a walk this morning and am proud of myself for it.

I am popping in with some cards for some challenges. The first challenge I am entering is the Twofer Challenge #29.

The challenge this time around was butterflies.

I used Hero Arts Color Layering Monarch Butterfly Stamp set for my cards. I had so much fun doing a messy look for the purple slimline-the first slimline I have ever created!!!

I used four colors of Distress Ink after I stamped the butterflies with  Versafine Onyx Black. (Shaded Lilac, Seedless Preserves, Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord)

The "happy" sentiment was die cut using The Ton's "Bold General Greeting Word Plate Dies" and the "birthday was stamped with Hero Arts "Happy" Stamp Set. I splattered the card with black and white acrylic paint that was watered down.

I used Nuvo Crystal Drops in "White Gloss" to finish off this card. 

For my second card, I used the Global Design Team Sketch #250 as the inspiration for my card design. 

I also used a color challenge from a private FB challenge board for my colors.

I stamped the butterfly with Hero Arts "Soft Granite," "Soft Pool," "Tide Pool," and "Ocean" ink. I then covered it with "Nuvo Clear Aqua Shimmer pen." 

The white panel and the gray polka dot panel was die cut with The Greetery's "Crimped Frame Dies."

The sentiment was stamped on a piece of scrap paper and I used foam adhesive to pop it onto the front of the card.

The last step was to adhere some clear sequins and some pale green gems.

My last card I created for Seize the Birthday #195. The topping was to use a non-neutral card base.

I chose to use red.

I used a digital stamp-Layer Cake- from Power Poppy for this card.

I colored colored it in using Copic Markers, using colors that are more masculine in tone.

I added glossy accents on the "blueberries" and some yellow Stickles for the candles.

Well, that is all from me today. I want to thank you all for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS day!!
