Dynamic Duos #62

Hello!

This week at Dynamic Duos we are using Calypso Coral and Basic Black, with an optional Butterfly theme. Before you start trying to adjust your monitor colour, I did not have Calypso Coral in my supplies. All of my corals (I have several) are more pink than orange, so I chose the closest colour I have. I also went a bit radical and stretched my papercrafting skills - I masked, sponged, and splattered using distress inks! It was fun!
I used PTI Heart-2-Heart #10, and Hero Arts Year Round Sentiments stamps. Ink is Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Worn Lipstick and Memento Tuxedo Black.
This colour scheme is showcased also by my amazing team mates. I'm sure they would appreciate a visit. :-)

Thank you for visiting me. I hope you can join us in the fun this week!

Coral is such a nightmare colour - it seems to vary so much. Love your masked panel with the spatters and those cool butterflies really pop off of it!
