Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC25

Well I've finally got the art room under control so I can squeeze in some challenges this weekend. The challenge this week over at the Play Date Cafe is to use black and white with a "pop" of colour, which is orange! Here is the inspiration photo...

I finally got my hands on the Medallion stamp form Stampin' Up! and thought it would be perfect for this challenge with a little orange in the center. Here is what I came up with...

I embossed the medallion with black embossing powder and popped it up off the white background. It's hard to tell in the photo, but the white background is embossed with a damask texture. The word is a rub-on by Stampin' Up! as well.

And here is a close-up of the center...

The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch and I added some dazzling diamond glitter to it to add a little sparkle. The orange rhinestone stickers are from Me & My Big Ideas.

Thanks for stopping by and I may just squeeze in another post later tonight :)
