♥ Colorful Butterfly Blueprint ♥

Happy Wednesday to you all! It's time for another brand new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! It's every one's favorite...ANYTHING GOES!

This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing Spectrum Noir products! I used the Primaries Colored Pencils Set. I must admit these are my first time using these pencils are they are fabulous!! Love the colors and the way they blend.


I would first color a section of the Tim Holtz Butterfly Sketch with a light shade and then blend it in with 1 of the Paper Stumps and then add a medium and darker shade over the lighter one, each time blending it in with a stump. When I was finished coloring in the butterfly, I added a coating of Glossy Accents over the image. I then cut the butterfly out and adhered it over another image of the sketch.


I also used some Tim Holtz Collage Papers, White Opal Liquid Pearls, seam binding, a vintage button and the alphabet and hello tag are from the Simon Says Butterflies Clear Stamp Set.


And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!

♥♥♥ BONUS! And Spectrum Noir is giving away to 1 lucky winner their choice of 2 sets of Colored Pencils! :)

Hope you all have an amazing day!
