Simply Stampin Challenge - Week 44 - Colour Challenge!

This week I have decided to take a totally different style as my inspiration and use a SteamPunk feel. The colours in the challenge are Early Espresso, River Rock, Not Quite Navy and Very Vanilla. I received a beautiful ATC swap earlier in the week, and so this one will be making its way back...

I have used lots of layers of papers with tears and various stamps layered up as well - I love texture so have also added embossing, ribbon and rhinestones!

The photo below shows some of the most beautiful veining on the wings I have used - part of the butterfly stamp from the Strength & Hope set. I have also been a bit naughty and used a non SU stamp for the lady... but she worked so well I couldn't resist!

I hope you like my creation, and here is the recipe:

Stamp Sets: Strength & Hope, Little Princess, Sophia (non SU)
Card Stock: Early Espresso, River Rock, Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla
Inks: VersaMark, Early Espresso, Not Quite Navy
Papers: First Edition, Springtime Vintage.
Ribbon: Early Espresso.
Other: Basic Rhinestones, Sweet Buttons Embosslit Die, ATC die (non SU), Cuttlebug (non SU), Mica Powder (non SU)

I am entering this ATC into the following challenge/s:

flutterbywednesdays - use embossing
