Colour Me & Colour Throwdown

Hello, Monday!  I've got a couple of cards to share with you today for two different challenges.  

The first is for the Colour Me Monochromatic challenge.  I used Daffodil Delight ink and a Studio Calico mask to create the background.  The sentiment is CAS-ual Fridays, the butterfly is Papertrey Ink and the sequins are Doodlebug. I love how the yellow peeks through from behind the butterfly.  It's quickly becoming my most used die!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Basic Grey, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Wonderful Words) Casual Fridays
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Daffodil Delight) Stampin' Up
Dies:  (Butterfly) Papertrey Ink
Stencil:  (V-Oattern Mask) Studio Calico
Sequins:  Doodlebug

Next up is The Colour Throwdown challenge.  I love this colour combo and the fabulous bottles in the photo would brighten up any room.  How cool would they look with some bright white daisies in them?  Anyway on to the card...  I used the Papertrey Ink stamp version of the die I used on the card above.  I rock and rolled the stamp it in the three challenge colours and then added an embossed sentiment below it.  Unfortunately the sequins I added look a bit purple in the photo but they're actually a Melon Mambo colour in real life! That's it for today.  Hope you have a lovely week!     

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Butterfly from Life Is Beautiful, Sentiment from Think Big Favourites #12) Papertrey Ink
Ink:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko, (Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight) Stampin' Up
Embossing Powder:  (Seafoam White) Ranger
Sequins:  Doodlebug

Both of your cards are beautiful but the second one really stands out especially with your awesome rock n roll stamping technique!!! Thanks for joining us for the Color Throwdown Challenge!!!

Gorgeous cards, Jen! I like the first one best, probably because I always fall for chevrons and because I love that sentiment from CASual Fridays.

Thank you for playing along with us at Colour Me…! this week!

Love the big huge butterfly, it looks like it's going to take flight.

These are just gorgeous--love them both. I've got that set out right now, in fact. Thanks for inspiring me with some more ideas for those stamps and dies.

Oh my, I could really add that butterfly to my stash, your cards are fabulous! (although I think my hubby would have a pink fit, he thinks all I stamp is butterflies.. not sure where he gets that from lol)

I love the bold striped background behind the butterfly - and it's all perfect with the large sentiment!
