SIP Challenge #12 - Black and White with a Pop of Color

Hello and happy Tuesday!  Not only have we survived Monday, but we have now officially survived August!  It is so hard to believe that it is already the 1st of September!  It has been a super hot summer here in Middle Tennessee so I'm ready for a cooler September!  Well since it is Tuesday, you know what that means!  Another SIP Challenge!  So welcome to Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #12! This week we have a Color Challenge that I really think is super fun....  Black, White, and a Pop of Color!

For my "Pop of Color" I chose the New 2015-2017 In Color "Watermelon Wonder".  It is one of my new favorites!  I stamped off twice for the background of the butterfly to make it a very pale pinkish red.  I stamped off once on the 2nd step, and stamped direct for step 3 of this beautiful butterfly!

I also used some of the new Stampin' Up! Neutral Color Collection Paper Stack paper in Basic Black. I really love the new patterns this year!  In my typical fashion I used part of a lot of Stamp Sets.  The flourish is from "Everything Eleanor" and was heat embossed in White.  The small butterflies are from "Papillion Potpourri" and stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Whisper White cardstock and then punched out with the Bitty Butterfly punch.  I doubled the layers so I could life the wings of the upper layer on all of the butterflies.  The flower is from "Flower Shop" stamp set and punched out with the Pansy Punch.  Last but not least, my pop of color was the large butterfly and is from "Watercolor Wings" stamp set and cut out with the Butterflies Thinlits Die.  Last but not least,  the "hello" sentiment is die cut on Whisper White cardstock with the "Hello You" thinlit dies.  Whew.. that's a lot of stamp sets, dies and punches out!   No wonder I have such a mess when I get done!
