Color Your World

I was inspired to make this butterfly card thinking I would use black ink only for Sharon’s Stamp simply challenge, but as I was making it I decided it would be fun to stamp one in rainbow colors!  Ooops, there goes the challenge!  I guess I’ll have to try again!  See, I told you I’m not always good at  following the rules! ~wink~.

Using markers is a great way to get multiple colors on one stamp, for a rainbow effect.  I used Martha Stewart art markers in pink, turquoise, orange and blue,  to “paint” on my rubber stamp “Priceless” set butterfly from Stampin’ Up!  When coloring stamps with markers, it’s a good idea to start with the lightest color and apply the darkest last, so your marker tips won’t get mucked up.  It’s a simple card, but I think it has “high impact”  with these high contrast colors.

Let me know what you think, and thanks so much for stopping by!

Have a creative day!
