My Other Creations: Butterfly Girl
Ombre is the name of the game for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.  I decided to use some ombre-esque color blending on the skirt of my paper Butterly Girl.

I thought I'd whip out the old Martha Stewart Circle Border Punch Starter kit for this project.  With it, I made a 7" doily using Prima's awesome Royal Menagerie paper.  I cut the doily in half and inked and blended the edges with different colors of Distress Ink.

I bent the doily halves into cone shapes and connected them together.  

Next I stamped and colored this amazing stamp from Penny Black called Melle Papillon.  I cut off the skirt portion of the stamp and attached the girl's torso to my doily skirt instead.

I added some butterflies using my go-to Martha Stewart butterfly punches in the big and smaller sizes and outlined the butterflies with a Sharpie pen. I finished it off with this great quote that's part of Dina Wakley's Collaged Hearts stamp set.

I know you've got some great ombre skills in your repertoire, so be sure to upload your creations to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog for your chance to win a $50 voucher to the Simon Says Stamp store.  I can't wait to see what you dream up!
