{The Cat's Pajamas} TCP Tuesday Color Challenge

It's TCP Tuesday challenge time at The Cat's Pajamas and we have a color challenge for this two week rotation. 

I broke out the butterflies for these springlike colors. I started out by cutting a butterfly cutout on the main panel with largest die from the Butterflies CutUps. I placed the green patterned paper underneath the cutout and stamped the small image from the Flutter By set across the butterfly wing and then also the sentiment from the same set with purple ink. After attaching the main panel to the background using dimensional dots I placed another butterfly cut with a die from the Mini Exotic Butterflies set in the center of the cutout. I added two more tiny butterflies cut with the Butterflies CutUps matted with enamel dots. 

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamps and CutUps, Avery Elle dp, PTI, MFT and Bazzill cs, Doodlebug enamel dots, Studio Calico ink

Here are the details:
  1. Every other Tuesday a new challenge will be posted on The Cat's Pajamas blog as well as on our Facebook page.
