The Spot Challenge #161 - Color Challenge with Stampin' Up! Positive Thoughts Simple Stamping Square Card

 Good Tuesday Morning!  Now that I have retired from my day job, every day seems like a Saturday!  I have a fun card to share with you today for The Spot's Color Challenge.  If you click the challenge graphic below, you can see what the rest of the Design Team has created with these fun colors!

I loved these colors!  Fresh Freesia is one of the new In Colors and is such a pretty light purple and  Granny Apple Green will forever be my favorite green!  


This week's card is square and truly is just simple stamping and layering.  Even though the beautiful Positive Thoughts stamp set has coordinating dies (Nature's Thoughts Dies), I just fussy cut that butterfly because I wanted the butterfly stamped under it on the card front to show up.  I stamped the fern branch in Granny Apple Green and the flower in both Magenta Madness and Fresh Freesia onto a panel of Basic White.   The sentiment was stamped onto the top in Magenta Madness.  I liked that the sentiment was partially stamped over the flowers and fern leaves!   I stamped the butterfly onto the panel with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto the card front as well as onto Watercolor paper (Fluid 100) in Black Stazon.  The butterfly on the Watercolor Paper was watercolored using Fresh Freesia and Magneta Madness Ink. After I fussy cut the butterfly, I attached the body with glue dots and added Dimensionals under the wings so that they were raised up.   The Basic White Card Front measured 4" x 4" and was layered on a 4-1/8" x 4-1/8" Basic Black.  I used my Black Stampin Write Marker to add some black splatters to the card front and then some black twine across the lower part of the layered card front, tied into a bow on the left side.  I used Dimensionals to then add it to a Magenta Madness 8-1/2" x 4-1/4" card base, scored at 4-1/4".  Super Simple Stamping but so cute!

Thanks so much to stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
