Color Challenge #3 and how to do the Butterfly in my sample :D

The color challenge for this week is :

Amethyst
Petal
Sweet Leaf
Spring Iris

To play use at least 3 of the 4 colors. If you don't have CTMH colors no biggie :D Just use the closest you have to those shades. My sample is in the post below. I'll be hosting this color challenge weekly on my blog now as well as the CTMH Consultant Forum. Send me a link to your creation via email or post it in the comments here and I'll link your art to this post so we can see all the fun ideas with this color combo :D

Color Challenge Cards :

Alison's Card
Sue's Card
Sparkle's Card
Jenn's Card
Mary's Card


Now how to make the butterfly :D She's really easy. First I inked her up in amethyst, then I rolled her in sweet leaf making sure to get closer to the middle. Then I rolled her again, mostly just at the tips in spring iris. I stamped her on white cardstock then cut her out and pop dotted her to the card. Next I added the rhinestones using liquid glass as an adhesive, then went around the edges of her wings and filled in her body and antennae with ice stickles. Viola!

And thank you Sparkle for letting me know about the SBS4 yahoo group :D I didn't realize they had started one ^_^. For all our SBS4 sisters, if you haven't found out yet we have a Yahoo group going on now HERE. Make sure you sign up :D There's already an image exchange going on and hopefully we'll have some more fun challenges up soon!
