Stampin' Up! Butterfly Basics

Stampin' Up Butterfly Basics for The Paper Players Color Challenge PP388

 It's a color Challenge at The Paper Players this Week and this combo definitely challenged me.
Elegant Eggplant is not a color I use very often but Wisteria Wonder will be missed when it retires May 31, 2018, or while supplies last. I tried several different options when making this card.  But this was my favorite. I love the Fluttering Emboss folder it's my been well loved. Since it's retiring also, I know I will be using it a lot. I just love the texture of all the butterflies.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with the ink and a blender pen. I tried the StampinWrite markers first but felt the Tranquil Tide was a bit too strong for the foliage on the flowers.
Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant are retiring to make way for some great new additions to Stampin' Up! family of colors.

  2. This is very pretty, Brenda, especially with the embossing on the background. I will be really sad to see this stamp go,'s one of my favorites! Thanks for playing with my purple challenge at the Paper Players!
