Flutter By Wednesday # 107 and other challenges

It is time to Flutter By! The FBW #107 challenge is clean and simple. I had to stop myself, but DID add a little bling! Be certain to use a BUTTERFLY, FAIRY or ANGEL in your creation!


This image is titled Restless Thoughts and is part of the ching-chou kuiks Fantasy Art Collection. I hadn't looked at the artist's colored version in some time, so find it interesting that we both used purple, or perhaps not since purple is my favorite color. I also managed to see her with a bit more skin showing, LOL! That is one of the things I love about stamps- everyone sees them just a bit differently!

Challenges:
FBW #107 - Clean and Simple


This is my second attempt at a Michelle Zindorf style card. There seems to be some interest in what that means and how this is done. I start with a white piece of cardstock and use a brayer to apply the color. I also use sponges for other parts and of course stamps for the images. It is FUN! I have so many ideas rolling around in my head and I want to play, play, play!!!

Challenges:
Macabre Monday #036 - Music Mayehm - Witchy Woman
Stamp-It-Crazy - Full Moon
Color Create Challenge #43 - Burnt Orange, Black & Cream
Darkness Inspiration - Bewitched

You're doing such a nice job with the brayering techinques! I haven't had a chance to practice yet, but I hope my first few attempts are half as good as yours! :) TTYS!

Both cards are awesome Alex! I take it you took the classes from Michelle? I took them about a year ago when she first started her workshops and it was such a great experience - and I learned a lot. Your brayering is awesome!
