Your Next Stamp Challenge #13

Your Next Stamp Challenge

Yay! I have another Your Next Stamp Challenge today! This time our theme was set by Karen and is Purple - go crazy or just add a touch as long as your card has purple on it.

Ever since I saw my fellow Starlet Angela alter Hoppy Easter Fhiona to be a ladybug instead of a bunny, I knew I wanted to try altering her too! I thought she would look great as a butterfly and here's what I came up with:

In case you're wondering, here's what she originally looked like:

I stamped her on white cardstock and colored just her face with Copics, then I stamped her on the dark purple patterned paper. I also stamped the bow portion onto light purple PP, cut it out and glued it on. I cut the purple PP version out, leaving out the ears and basket. The antenna are a Quickutz diecut and you can see that I also cut off her legs and repositioned them to look more like she's flying instead of just standing on the ground. I also cut out the face from the purple version so the Copic version could show through. Lastly, the wings are a Spellbinders die and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

Here's a close shot so you can see her a little better:

I had so much fun altering her, I will definitely be trying it again in the future! I've already got a couple more ideas so hopefully I'll be able to share them sometime soon!

Challenges: We hope you'll play along with us! One lucky participant will be drawn at random to win $10 in YNS Stamp Bucks!! You don't have to use YNS images on your card, but if you do you'll get a double entry in the draw!

Also, the challenge hostess will choose her favorite card, and that winner will get the YNS Challenge "Top Pick" blinkie to proudly display on their blog PLUS $5 in YNS Stamp Bucks! You must use a YNS image to be eligible to be chosen for Top Pick.

Full details can be found at the YNS Challenge Blog. TFL!
