One Layer Flutterby

I'm going to post this early since I have a very busy weekend ahead and probably won't get to the computer much.  I could do a scheduled post, but I haven't the foggiest notion how!  That lesson is for another day.

This week's One Layer Wednesday#40 was hosted by Jennifer at Styles Ink.  Now I'm gonna tell you, at first, I thought WHAT?  But then, it wasn't so hard.  Here is the challenge in Jennifer's own words...

This week, the challenge is to use two (and ONLY two) image stamps on your card. That’s right, just two. And no sentiment. You may not use each stamp more than once.

You may also use the following AND ONLY the following: heat embossing and/or markers to colour your stamped images. That means no bling, no ribbon, no hippopotamuses.



All this has to be on a one layer card, defined as one sheet of cardstock folded in half.

The flower is from the Awash with flowers set.  It's actually 2 stamps but it makes one image, right?  I stamped the flower with Melon Mambo and colored it with Pink Pirouette & Melon Mambo markers.  The stem is stamped with Wild Wasabi.  I blended a bit with the blender pen, since my coloring is a bit rough.

The butterfly image is from Nature Walk.  It's stamped with Black StazOn and colored with a Wild Wasabi marker.

I chose the colors from the Curtain Call Color Challenge #68
