Happy Hello

Happy Wednesday!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week, we have a beautiful inspiration photo for you:
Don't you just love those colors?!  Here's my take on it:
The background was created using Sharpie Markers and rubbing alcohol.  Seriously, it was that easy.  I followed this tutorial that I found on Pinterest.  After creating the background and stamping the butterflies, I spritzed on some Glimmer Mist to give it a really pretty sparkle, but it's really hard to catch it in a photo.

Ooo . . . yeah . . . see those pink stripes on the bottom of my sentiment panel?  I created that with my newest favorite tool: a stencil.  I'm so in love! Head on over to The House blog and check out how the rest of the DT interpreted this challenge.  And if you see a stamp you have to have, make sure you use the 10% off discount code on the left hand side of my blog (It's off your entire order!)
