WWC39 -- Susan's Colour Challenge

This week's Watercooler Wednesday challenge.  Susan Horr has provided us with a selection of colours for this challenge.  There are four colours but it's surprising how those same four colours can take so many different forms depending on who is inspired by them.

My card this week, uses Smokey Slate, Watermelon Wonder, Summer Starfruit and Pool Party,  and the stamp sets Swallowtail and Butterfly Basics
Here is the front of the card.  I stamped the Swallowtail stamp in Versamark and then Smokey Slate.  Then used clear embossing powder and heat to set it.  Then sponged Watermelon Wonder and Summer Starfruit on the butterfly image.  I sponged Pool Party around the butterfly, and then layered this on Whisper White and Pool Party.  The sentiment is from Butterfly Basics

Thanks for looking !!


  1. Hi Betty, what a gorgeous use of the colours in our challenge! They work so beautifully in that swallowtail. Using the embossing powder over the grey was a great idea and really makes a good frame around the sponged colours. Thanks so much for sharing your creation with us for this week's Watercooler Wednesday challenge.

  2. This is a lovely card! I love the sponged background around the butterfly, and the clever use of the colors.

  3. Beautiful card, Betty Lee! I love how you've used the colors on your butterfly. Thanks for joining us at Watercooler Wednesday Challenges. Marsha DT @ WWC
