To BOLDLY go.....

Hey there everyone.

Now before you think I have gone all sci-fi and gone astray with Capt Kirk....the title refers to this last challenge from Swap Sisters......BOLD BRIGHTS!!

Now the only BB I had really used before was Real Red...and that was for Christmas things...although I discovered I had more of the stamp pads/markers than I thought (which was wonderful!!) This is what we were set.... first thought was to reach for my sunglasses. After that....I started to think RAINBOW and the seeds of a card were sewn. After a LOT of measuring and calculation, here's what I came up with......

I was happy with the result. I did have to swap Pixie Pink for Pink Passion (but I cleared it with the powers that be first!!) I have left room in the bottom right for a sentiment as I am not sure as to what should go on it. I also made a mental note NOT to cut out too many of the butterfly thery are very fiddley!!!! All of the butterflies are popped up on dimensionals to give a 3D feel.

I can't say I will reach for this colour group again, but I sure had fun playing with it. hope you all have a bright and fun-filled kinda day.

Stuff used:
CS: (SU) Summer Sun, Tempting Turquoise, Only Orange, Pink Passion, Whisper White
Ink: (SU) Pink Passion and Tempting Turquoise, Summer Sun and Only Orange Markers
Stamps: (SU) Butterfly Prints
Punches: (SU) Butterfly Punch
Other bits: Dimensionals.....and a WHOLE lotta measuring....LOL
