Another Magenta Two Takes

For this two takes, I used the same card design concept but varied the card colours and stamping techniques.  One card being multicoloured (using the Magenta logo colours from one of the 20th Anniversary challenges) and the other monochromatic.

Supplies: patterned paper, stamp and chipboard letters (Magenta), cardstock (Bazzill), ink and stickles (Ranger), markers (CTMH), pen (Creative Memories)

For the multicoloured card, I coloured in both the base stamped butterflies and the fussy cut ones with waterbased markers to match the logo colours. I chose to faux stitch in black to coordinate with the inked pieces. Lastly, I used black Stickles on the body and antenni.

Supplies: patterned papers, and stamp (Magenta), ink (Ranger and CTMH), sentiment stamp (Dollarama), VersaMark (Tsukineko), emboss powder (Inkadinkado), glitter (Doodlebug Designs), Embroidery floss (Loops and Threads)

For the monochromatic yellow version, I stamped with a different lighter shade of black ink pad and the butterflies were heat embossed using white embossing powder before being fussy cut. I sewed with white embroidery floss to frame the torn paper stamped image and to coordinate with the white butterflies. I finished off the butterflies with glue and yellow glitter.

I really like how using one design, one stamp and different techniques and colours can create such a variety of looks. Another way to get more out of a stamp and design idea.
