Look at me go. Two challenges in one. Yeah

So I was doing my usual look at what people are making and not making anything myself when I came across these two challenges that I thought "Hey they go together". So I stopped bloggin and started stampin.

The first challenge is from the lovely Kylie Jo. The challenge is to make a card using only soft subltes and neutrals. Check out her blog here and have a go.

The next is from the talented ladies at Anyone For Anya. There challenge was to use Black+White with one other colour.

So this is the card I came up with. I embossed with Baroque Motifs in black and the butterfly in white. I love this new butterfly punch. I can so see it getting used quite a lot. I used my ink pads and aqua painter to colour in my Anya. No sentiment yet as i'm not sure what I will use card for. Crystal effects on her boots and buttons just to finish it off.

Thanks for looking.
