I’ve loved doing the Mystery Makery Challenge so much that I decided to ask another Fun Stampers Journey Coach, Rachel Brumley, to participate with me.   I selected the Small Things stamp set from the newly released Spring Into Summer catalog.  For my design challenge I chose Whip Cream, Blue Lagoon,and Black Licorice cardstock.  The Blue Lagoon background is dry embossed and the butterflies are colored using Colorbust Pencils.  Additionally, ribbon and rhinestones were added to give a bit of pizazz.  My creation is on the left and Rachel’s is on the right.  We used the same stamp set and colors to come up with very different looks.


Rachel selected  A Bushel & A Peck stamp set and  Whip Cream, Summer Sun, Cranberry Bliss, and Oatmeal Cookie colored cardstocks.  Her ink selections were Cranberry Bliss,  Dark Roast, and Oatmeal Cookie.  Dry embossing and twine were her finishing touch selections.  Again same stamp and colors were used to achieve two very different looks.  For these challenges, we don’t share our finished results with each other before the designated reveal day so not to influence the other.
