Techno Stampers Sketch Challenge

O.K. can someone please tell me where the time goes these days?  It seems that Monday has come and gone and I didn’t get to play along at MaryJo's Sketch Challenge.

But like so often, I am referring back to my favorite motto “Better late than never” and quickly post before Monday rolls around again in just 2 days…

Here is her sketch:


And here is what I came up with today:

butterfly bliss

This card uses TWO chopped up wheels! The Butterfly Bliss is my newest one, and I tell you I really like using the wheels as stamps (see this post for the video on how to un-mount a wheel).


Stamps: Thoughtful Friend (wheel gone stamp), Butterfly Bliss (wheel gone stamp)

Paper: Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Peach Parfait

Ink:Rich Razzleberry, Peach Parfait, Basic Black

Accessories: Buttons, Hemp, Dimensionals

Tools: Fun Flowers die, Top Note Die, Square Lattice Embossing Folder

You might wonder just how I picked those colors together. Well I used my trusty Color Coach (sort of). Here is the story… Last night at my downline meeting I cut a top note shape frame for a template and had the top note shape still on the table. So I started to plan around it. And since it was in Rich Razzleberry, I checked with my Color Coach and he told me to use Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie. I thought I was in complete luck because I had those flowers already cut and next to my keyboard. Well it’s a little darker over here, so I thought they were Pumpkin Pie. Once I had my card together I realized they were Peach Parfait, which is just a little lighter. I think it works pretty well. What do you think?
