Dabbed Blue Butterflies

Happy Friday, everyone! This is the last Friday of the month, which means it's time for a challenge with the Chapel Road Design Team over on the Class Act Insider blog.

The Class Act stamp company is actually divided into two stamp lines - Class Act and Chapel Road. I am on the Chapel Road design team, and we will have some fun challenges on the last Friday of each month. The Class Act design team has different challenges on the first Friday of each month, so that's just more fun for you to play along with! :-)

For today's challenge, we have to use the color blue and some kind of edge punch on our projects. I pulled out the small butterfly stamp from the Butterfly Square set and stamped it three times, painted them with blue shimmery paint, and cut them into diamonds. I also pulled out the Edwardian Birthday set and stamped a sentiment at the bottom of my card.

For the "edge punch" part of the challenge, I decided to do something a little different. I pulled out my trusty pinking shears and cut the triangular edge so it coordinated with the three butterfly diamonds.

How do you like that background? I used the Dabbed Shimmers technique from Technique Junkies along with some Aqua Marine Creative Inspirations Paint. You can see the awesome shimmer here:

Check out what the other Chapel Road design team gals have created by going to the Class Act Insider blog. We'd love to have you play along with us in our challenge - you could win free stamps! :-)
