This morning I worked on the Sketch Challenge over on Split Coast Stampers (SCS). I also added one of the Creative Crew Challenges. Do you know what the Creative Crew is? The Creative Crew is a group of demos that SCS chooses to create cards or items using the challenges that are given. This just started in January. Each month there are new challenges. When the challenges are posted to the rest of us, then anyone can do them and post them to the galleries.
This is what I did for SC328. It also used the Creative Crew Catalog Focus of Punches.
I used a brand new set out of the Summer Mini. It will be available May 1. It is called Flower Fest. I stamped on Shimmery White Cardstock and I also added shimmer with the Smooch Pearlized Top Coat on the roses and the butterfly. The Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper is also new.
Stamp set: Flower Fest
Cardstock: Wild Wasabi, Melon Mambo, Shimmery White and Beyond the Garden DSP

We all know that SU! punches rock, so this month punch us up some flowers, butterflies, birds, and bugs! You don't have to make actual punch art (unless of course you want to Jackie!), but show us what your punches can do!
The technique is easy. Put a few drops of Frost White Shimmer Paint onto a paper plate. Using a piece of scrunched plastic wrap, dab it into the paint and then pounce it all over a piece of Whisper White Cardstock. Leave some areas uncovered. Let it dry. Sponge or brayer with any color of ink to get the color and pearl effect. WOW. So beautiful. The piece that is stamped is also Faux Mother of Pearl. It is then stamped with Black Staz On. Don't you just LOVE the Paisley Petals Paper? It is fabulous! And this piece was just begging for the Basic Pearls. And the Vintage Flower. Holy cow! I need to tell you. Those just did not grab me AT ALL when I saw them. I finally decided to order them and they are WONDERFUL. You really need to get them. I mixed some of the paint with the reinker and dabbed that on. And then of course addedsome pearls to that too.
