Simon Says Flickr Challenge

Simon Says Stamp has started a new bi-weekly challenge on their Flickr site and it's being run by the fabulous Barb, whom we all adore!

This first challenge is a colour challenge and the rules are pretty simple.  Use at least 3 out of the 5 colours and use at least one Simon Says Stamp exclusive brand product on your project.

I used 6 dies on this project (yikes that seems like a lot) and four of them are by SSS.  One is from Poppystamps and one is from Papertrey Ink.

SSS Butterfly Birthday

I inked up the solid butterfly with Distress Inks and added 2 layers of the overlay die cut in vellum.  I coloured the Birthday die cut with Squeezed Lemonade and the Leafy Sprig die cuts in a couple shades of green Distress Ink and sprayed everything that was inky with Perfect Pearls for a little shimmer.
