This week's Blogger's Challenge was to create a card using the Color Blocking Technique. I haven't done this technique for a while. The first time that I tried it was when it was a challenge over on SCS about two years ago!!! That time, I used just different blocks of colored cardstock. This time, I used the same sheet of patterned paper (Chatterbox) and made it into rectangular blocks to fit on my card front.
I just love the mix of colors in this paper and took my inspiration from there. The paper reminds me of a garden, so I pulled out my new Storage Units, Ink & More set, Butterfly Garden, because every flower garden needs a few butterflies fluttering about! The butterfly images are stamped with Black Stazon and watercolored with Stampin' Up's Elegant Eggplant and Old Olive inks. The main image is layered onto a scalloped, eggplant rectangle that I made with my Nesties. A little bit of piercing was added to the corners for a simple accent. I used a sentiment from Papertrey Ink and my Stampin' Up oval punches to finish it off.
