Silhouetted Butterflies

My good buddy, Joanne (aka JoJot) challenged our CCEE Stampers group to make a project using silhouettes as our main focus this week. I kept my project very simple. I black embossed Flight of the Butterfly images, sponged my background with Ranger Tattered Rose and Peeled Paint Distress inks, and then stamped Vintage Vogue images on the background.  I also sponged the same two colors on a background piece of cardstock since I didn't have any designer paper that I thought went well with what I created.


If you'd like to play along or see the projects my friends made, you can get the details on our CCEE blog
Thanks for looking and have a great day!

I can't believe another week has gone!!! Help!
This is so pretty with the matching sponged layers and the black (& polka-dotted) butterflies). That one punched circle in the top - or is it part of a butterfly wing - is the perfect touch.
Who needs designer paper when it looks this good without it.

Love the butterfly silhouettes and the flowers. I like how you sponged with the different colors to give it this pattern.
