Joy of Sets #007 - Letter W

Good Day Crafty Friends,

Hope you are having a fabulous day and have managed to squeeze in some crafting time for yourself.  It's challenge time over at Joy Of Sets. This weeks challenge letter is "W".

Not familiar with JOS blog challenges?  Fiona Whitehead runs a fabulous Facebook group page called Joy Of Sets. It's an inspiring group where Stampin' Up! Demonstrators and non Demonstrators share their creations using both retired and current Stampin' Up! Products.  You can also enter the monthly colour challenge just by submitting a picture of a card you have created using that's months chosen colour, directly to the FB group page - no blog needed.

Alongside the FB group page, Fiona has started a fortnightly blog challenge - Joy of Sets Challenge Blog. Each fortnight a different letter is chosen and participants are required to enter a card, which has the challenge letter in the stamp sets title eg this fortnight we are working with W - I chose to use Watercolour Wings. 

To a Thick Whisper White 5"x5" card base, I added a strip of Merry Little Christmas DSP. Then to a Whisper White card front that had been embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder, a strip of black card was added behind the card front before attaching to the base.
Two layers of Whisper White card were used as the base for layered butterfly cluster - the top layer has splatters of Powder Pink ink, created using the gorgeous grunge stamp set. Bakers twine was wrapped around the top before adhering to the card front with dimensionals.

Using the Watercolour Wings stamp set, the butterfly was inked in Powder Pink and Momento black. Old Olive card was used to cut the leaves using the Botanicals Builder Thinlits. The frames behind the butterfly were created using the squares from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

A few banners of card were tucked behind the butterfly cluster and sentiment, to tie the cards overall colour combination together. The sentiment from Floral Phrases was stamped in Old Olive to coordinate with the ribbon tucked under the sentiment. A few rhinestones were added to finish it off.
Hope you are inspired to play along. Pull out a current or retired stamp set that has the letter "w" in its title and share with us here. Thanks for stopping by today.

Until next time, stay awesome
