Tag Tuesday - Orange and Black

The new Tag Tuesday Challenge over at Blog Challenge Garden is Black and Orange and Not Halloween or Autumn Related!  I knew immediately what I wanted to do, thanks to tons of inspiration from Godelieve's blog, Stamping Matilda.  I adore her work, and she has been doing a dictionary series that is gorgeous.. you can see the posts HERE.  I thought this challenge was perfect for a little CASE of that work.  The butterfly stamp is from Red Lead, colored with Prismacolor pencils.  The little flower stamp is from Oxford Impressions.  That's all for now... I've got a new Gingersnap Creations challenge piece coming tomorrow - hope to see ya then. :)

Well, I think orange is a beautiful colour, it needn't be Fall to use it :-) Your piece looks really cute. I love the batterflies so dark over the light background.
