PPA281: Stamping with the Pals

Hey everyone!

This is the last PPA challenge of 2015…it’s open for a
few more days,so there’s still time for you to play!

PPA 281 Dec 24Playing along with challenges is one way to improve your
color awareness and your design talents..so go ahead, don’t be shy!

Swallowtail Thank You

Normally, I try to be as close to the sketch as possible, but this time
I bent the rules a little, so… it’s not a exact match. Sometimes mistakes
dictate the design, if ya know what I mean!

The background behind the Swallowtail uses the stamp off method.
I used one of the flowers from the Beautiful Bunch first.  Ink up the stamp…
and stamp on a spare sheet of paper, then stamp on your project (stamping off).
The result is a faint version of the stamp, great for backgrounds like this one.
The grid stamp you see is from the new set Timeless Textures. It’s available
in the new2016 Occasions Catalog starting January 5th.
