[DYSU] Challenge #98 - Rainbow

Good morning, DYSU-ers! I'm back! Miss me? ;) I missed you! It's been a long haul here in New Jersey. Lots have been fixed, but there is still so much repair to be done.

Today I am showcasing some delicious Uniko Studio digital products.

Stamps: (Eclectic Summer Mix, English Country Garden) Uniko Studio
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Sweet Blush) Papertrey Ink
Ink: N/A
Embellishments: (Stamper's Select Vellum) Papertrey Ink; (Soft-core Color Pencils) Prismacolor; (Point 88) Stabilo; (Elf Chipboard Letters Stickers) American Crafts + Studio Calico; (Signo White) Uniball

I printed off this gorgeous butterfly on top of the Eclectic Summer Mix and colored it in with two mediums: color pencils and fine-tip pens. I was going for a stained glass but colorful polka-dotted butterfly. After all this is a rainbow challenge, and I thought the spirit of it all is to have as many colors as possible!

Since I didn't want the background's colors to fight with the butterfly I pulled some trusty vellum to help mute the colors. Brilliant, isn't it, what a little bit of opaque layering can do. I must remember this more often. And I bet one can mess around with monotonic themes quite well with vellum...note to self... but I digress...


Another quick element to tie this together was a little bit of faux white stitching along the vellum as well as putting together a quick sentiment with thickers.


That's all I have or you now. I'd like to invite you to hop on over to see the amazing creations by the rest of the DYSU team. Please leave them a loving comment, because they do appreciate some blog love :)

Love your colourful butterfly and the vellum overlay really works well in muting the colours of the backing paper..
