AAA Cards - #89 Bright & Beautiful

It may be the last day of March but it's all new at AAA Cards today and a bright and beautiful challenge is just beginning.  And that's not all - there is also a DT Call going on for the duration of this challenge. So get your crafting genius on and who knows you could be joining the team soon!

Well I knew exactly which stamps I wanted to use for this challenge, and actually made two versions - one with bright colours and one with pastels. I've naturally picked the bright one for my DT card, but have a sneaky regard for the pastels version. Wondering which is your favourite?

I started by using a circle stencil with another stencil on the top of it and brushing through three colours of ink.

I then over stamped the inking with the butterfly and sentiment. I used pens to add the colours to the butterfly.

I repeated the same process with my next card but used pastel shades of the same colours.

Stamps: Uniko, All Occasion Sentiments #6; Stampendous, Butterfly
Inks: Card 1 - Ranger distress, picked raspberry, wilted violet, mustard seed; Card 2 - Ranger distress, spun sugar, shaded lilac, scattered straw; Versafine, onyx black
Pens: Card 1 - Chameleon, deep violet; colorista, canary, sorbet; Card 2 - Promarkers, baby pink, lilac, buttercup

The AAA Cards DT have some quite spectacular inspiration for you - check it all out here. We also have the glorious Carol from CarolG Creates joining us as Guest Designer for this challenge. And four of the very talented So Suzy DT are also playing along as So Suzy are sponsoring the Bright & Beautiful Challenge. Hope you've time to go visit and leave some love!

I'm so pleased to have shared some of your time today, huge thanks for dropping by.  And keep crafting!
