Color Challenge August 9th

 Just a reminder that it is Tuesday again and time for another Color Challenge at the Outlawz

 I picked out this weeks colors. I hope you like them. 

And the inspiration picture:

Artistic August: Use transparent embellishment

I used my R-89 and a little copic blender solution to color my seam binding and then heat set it to get the color of my cherry red card stock. I used a stamp from CTMH that includes both the sentiment stamp and butterfly. I stamped the butterfly with Stazon on some plastic packaging and cut it out and pop dotted it. Hint: don't throw away that heavy plastic packaging, it is perfect for stazon.  I sewed the 16 paper squares on like a quilt for the Our Daily Bread Challenge that is Notions/Seamstress.  That was a challenge!!

Don't forget our sponsor this month is  Di's Digi Downloads.
Check out the main page to see all the fabulous sponsors. 

I am going to add this to the challenges at:
Cupcake Craft Challenges is sewing.
Paper Creations ink has stitching.
Pink Elephant Challenge is use at least 1 butterfly.
Pollycraft challenge is to recycle. I recycled some plastic packaging for the butterfly.
Card Cupids Blog has ribbon and buttons.
One stop Craft Challenge has make your sentiment the main part of your project.
