Once again I have the pleasure of creating using Sweet Pea Stamps. Honestly, there are some Sweet Pea lines that I just lovelovelove. The stamp I used for the July 15th ATC Challenge captivated me from the moment I laid eyes on it. I can't do it near the justice that this artist did. I'm not sure which of the design team actually made this card, but it is incredible.
Here is the ATC before I applied it to the card:
And then on the card base:

I really wanted to overplay the purple. I love deep purple and I thought it went well with this image. To contrast it, I wanted to use the teal for the eyes and butterfly, so the image remained dark.
I dry brused the flourishes with Fresh Snow ink. I thought they were boring plain black. In my head, this made it more dramatic.
Thanks for looking!
