Orange and Yellow Challenge on Stamp TV

Having caught up with various birthday card makes I found myself with some time to play just for the fun of it. The Orange and Yellow colour challenge on Stamp TV took my fancy and this is what I came up with.

The Butterfly is by Elusive Images and comes from the Butterfly Daisy Collage Themeplate. It's stamped with Fired Brick Distress Ink onto card that I had first coloured using Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks.

The yellow background is a piece of core'dinations card stock which I embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and then rubbed the surface colour off the embossed areas with an emery board. This was matted onto some orange card stock that was punched along one edge with a Fiskars border punch. The orange corners were cut using my Cuttlebug.


  1. Stunning! I love the colours! going through a real distress ink phase myself at the moment x

  2. wow, beautiful colours. I adore the butterfly! Great job and thanks for the comment on my blog.

  3. Phree, as usual this is gorgeous but I particularly love the way you've done the butterfly.

    Also, I'm sure I wouldn't have thought to use all those oranges and yellows together but it looks fabulous.
