...Contemporary Brocade Butterflies

HAPPY HALLOWEEN, EVERYONE! I will not be able to enjoy the Halloween festivities in my neighborhood this year. I will be working the concession stand at the LFO-SE Whitfield football, fun! I also have a ton of work to do today, so I am sharing this card with you early.

This is my submission for today's Limited Supplies Challenge #192 at SCS. We were to use a stamp(s) in a way different from what it was originally intended..."Stamps In Disguise". I used the curly "s" images and the leaf blossom from the set "Brocade Basics" to create these contemporary butterflies. The bodies were made by coloring one of the S's with a Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write Marker. The wings were stamped with the following: Tangerine Tango Classic Ink, Kiwi Kiss Classic Ink, and Bashful Blue Classic Ink. I made a little eye for each using the White Signo Gel Pen, then covered the wings with Icicle Stickles for some shimmer.

The sentiment was from the set "Kindred Spirits", and it was stamped in Chocolate Chip Classic Ink. I received my large order from Stampin' Up yesterday, so I just had to play with my new Frosty Day Designer Series Paper...LOVE IT! Some of the embellishments used to complete this card include some 5/8" Kiwi Kiss Striped Ribbon, and brads from the Sterling Silver HodgePodge Hardware container.

That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by this morning, and I hope to see you all again tomorrow. I will be working on getting supplies and samples ready for my upcoming clubs, so I will be very busy. I will try my best to post something over the weekend, though. Until then...
