Featuring Robin

Robin, aka Missro is the Featured Stamper at SCS this week.  I wish I had time to CASE more than one of her cards.  Such inspiration in her gallery.  I chose this card as my inspiration.  Here's mine....


I pretty much kept the layout using a larger, rectangular design area.  I used the embossing on my main panel and a different butterfly.

Simon Says Stamp Challenge is having an  Anything Goes week.  I'll bet there'll be lots of entrants in this one!

Addicted to Stamps and More is having a MAKE YOUR MARK  challenge this week.  You can create anything you like but you MUST use markers on your project.

I used Stampin' Up! markers to color the butterfly.  Then I smacked it with VersaMark and clear embossed it to give the wings a silky look.

I made the antennae from a tiny snippet of black which I slit with my paper snips and taped to the back of the butterfly.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
