Stamper's Dream Dreamy Challenge 7

It's time for our Stamper's Dream Dreamy Challenge!!!

This month The Dream Team is issuing a challenge that includes colors, texture and bling!

The colors we are using are Island Mist Prismatics medium, Blush Red Prismatics dark, and either Birchtone Prismatics light OR Suede Brown Prismatics dark for your neutrals. You must add texture as we are with the Spellbinders Impressabilities and some bling!

Tosha says that compatible Stampin' Up colors are Baha Breeze, Riding Hood and Sahara Sand. If you don't have Prism Papers, you can use any colors that are similar! We want EVERYONE to play along! The texture can be Cuttlebug Folders or something else if you don't have Impressabilities. Use your imagination and dazzle us with your creativity!


I chose to use the Impressabilities Butterfly to texturize my Island Mist Prismatics medium background.

The stamp is Melinda with Bouquet by Whiff of Joy. I stamped it on watercolor paper, then cut it out with my Labels Three Nestabilities . The image was colored with Tombow (water based) markers and a damp paint brush.

I used my Quickie Glue Pen as an adhesive then sprinkled Crystal Ultrafine Glitter on the wings.

The corner flourish is cut from Blush Red Prismatics cardstock using my Spellbinders Flourish Accent Shapeabilities. The bling on the flourish is Zva Creative Mini Rhinestones applied with a touch of Mono Multi Liquid Glue .

The flowers and center brad are from my stash.



We would love for all of you to play along with this month's challenge! In fact, I have this prize for the lucky winner of the random drawing. All you have to do is follow the rules listed above and link your card in this post. If you post to the SCS gallery please use SDDC7 in the keywords so we can find it. I will announce the winner in my regular post on Thursday evening, May 28.

Please be sure to check out what the rest of the Dream Team has come up with for the challenge! Charmaine , Cammie , Denise , Kimberly , Laurie , and Tosha

Thanks so much for stopping by! I can't wait to see what you all do with the challenge!
