Play Date Cafe Challenge #34

This is the first Color Splash challenge I've done, and I really enjoyed this - what a great effect!  And you all know how I love my blues!!  Here is my entry:


I was inspired by KathyC's quilt card; I really like the strips of black and white, and thought they'd work beautifully for this challenge.  So I cut strips of black and white cardstock, then stamped a variety of Hero Arts background stamps for the varied patterns.  My butterfly was stamped on a piece of polished stone paper from my scrapbasket, and I gave it blue antennae and a blue trail. 

This is such a fun idea!  Go and look at all the other wonderful entries at the Play Date Cafe!

Supplies: Hero Arts F5158 Heart Winged Butterfly, CL307 SparkleClear Mini Messages, S5341 Lace Background, CG125 Friend Definition, K5175 Houndstooth, CG119 Flourish Background, S5264 Antique Flower Background, CG118 Stripes Pattern, Nestabilities Labels Eight, Cuttlebug Textiles embossing folder, blue wire, blue pearls
