Guest Designer - The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge #2

Hi, everybody!  I'm continuing as Guest Designer this month at The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge.  We have a new challenge for you that begins today and runs until May 30.  

The challlenge for this fortnight is to use black and white and add one colour from the inspiration photo, plus the twist, which is to include a butterfly Our sponsor for May is Gerda Steiner Designs, a personal favourite of mine!  I hope you'll join us!

The colour I chose from the inspiration photo is pink.  My card features the adorable Love You Kitten from Gerda Steiner Designs.  I've been collecting Gerda's digital images for about nine years, and it looks like this one from 2016 is now retired.  Too bad, because it's so cute!

I coloured the image with markers to look like our Snowie (RIP) and added some white accents with a paint marker and then fussy-cut so I could pop it up on foam tape.  My ombre-look background was created with Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide Spray.  I adhered a die-cut black scalloped frame (Gina Marie Designs) directly to the background and then a white scalloped frame with foam tape.  I stamped xoxo (Clearly Besotted) at each of the four corners.  Lastly I adhered three punched butterflies, each double-layered and embellished with a black gem.

Head over to The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge and join our challenge!

How did I miss this one? And it was inspired by your beautiful kitty! Pretty background you created, and the kitty is Purrrfect! (Sorry, couldn't resist! lol)... I haven't gotten into the distress sprays yet, but I really like how you used it!
Hope you are doing well and having beautiful days!
