Butterfly Effect Movie card
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Movies".

It's hard to believe, but it's been 10 years since I was chosen to participate as a design team member in Monday Challenge Blog. Back then it was called Simon Says Stamp and Show. At that time, I was only about a year into paper crafting. A whole world opened up to me. I discovered all the amazing products, like the Distress line, Sizzix dies, Idea-ology from Tim Holtz, among others. And of course I started collecting/hoarding a lot like everbody else. 

Then I discovered challenge blogs, like Simon Says Stamp and Show, and not much later they had a DT call. I'd never been in a DT before, but figured why not. And yes, I got the email I had dreamed of, I was chosen! It was a super fun time. I'm so happy that you followed me along this journey! Thanks for that! Of course I also want to thank my teammies and the whole Simon Says Stamp family that I've been a part of! All of you, thanks so much!


Okay, so now for my final project! I was always very intrigued by the movie The Butterfly Effect. Also because of the Butterfly Effect phenomenon, which is why that is my inspiration for my card. I started with Distress Spray Stain Speckled Egg, Prize Ribbon and Black Soot for a dark and mysterious background. With the Dapper, Read to Me and Entomology stamps I added more depth.


For the star of the card I used the butterfly from the Specimen stamp set. I stamped it first with Distress Oxide Faded Jeans, and then stamped the edges with Distress Archival Ink Black Soot. I colored the butterfly with Distress Ink Faded Jeans, Black Soot and Ground Espresso.
