Kitchen Sink Crew Challenge #10 - ATC, Card

Sigh, no matter how hard I tried to get good photo's, it's just way too bright in the house today.
Click for a closer view, maybe then you can see the layering of colors.


Hello! I am finally done with all my Easter cards and baskets, so now I can become a regular at challenges again...YES! Carol told me Kitchen Sink Stamps was having a challenge, located here, so I thought I'd give it a shot today. I love my pansy set, as it reminds me of my Grandma, planting the flower beds at our home, when I was a little girl. She loved their little "faces" and all the colors, but the purple & yellow ones were her absolute favorite. So this card is dedicated to my Grandma. I wish she were still with us, as I miss her every day.

We were to make an ATC, so I stamped a couple of sizes of pansies, with 5 shades of ink each. The 2 types of leaves were 3 separate colors each. Alot of masking was done, to achieve the layered look. I then trimmed the ATC, leaving the blooms overlapping the matting. The butterfly is a MS punch, and was punched from another pansy I stamped, to bring in the exact colors. A little pearl accent, to the butterfly and blooms finished it off.

For the card, I used various designer papers...KC & Co. & Debbie Mumm. Added a few more pearls to add a little sparkle.

Hope you enjoy it...I sure did enjoy this challenge!

Thanks so much for looking!

Heidi, this is so sweet, and the colors are just so vivid, they really stand out. You did a great job with the ATC and converting it to a card! Aren't those stamps so realistic?
