another collage....

hello friends!!  it is an ugly grey and wet day here in washington state... it seems our typical late fall/early winter weather has finally set in... ugh!!  i was so enjoying all the really nice days we had been having lately... sigh!  anywhoo... have a little card i made for this week's Less is More challenge and the current ColourQ combo.


this card may look familiar to some of you because it is basically a redo of a card i made a few weeks ago.   there was nothing wrong with the first card... in fact i loved how it turned out and that is why i decided to recreate it using the colors from ColourQ and adding a bit of hardware (the butterfly charm) to satisfy this week's Less is More challenge.  all the stamps are from some of my favorite stampin up! sets.  i do love collage stamping and figuring out how to layer the colors and images so that everything looks harmonious.    this particular group of stamps makes it easy to achieve that harmony because they all work so well together.

thanks for stopping by...

supplies:  cardstock:  pti white; stamps:  stampin up!  because i care, bliss & vintage fresh; inks:  hero arts latte chalk ink, stampin up! tempting turquoise, really rust & old olive; butterfly charm; may arts twine
