Simply Betty Progressive Challenge

So, it's been quite a while since I posted. One word: Life. Oh well, I'm planning to change that and post more often. Today's post is all about Simply Betty Stamps and their progressive challenge. 

Each month we get a free stamp to use, provided we meet all the expectations from the previous month. Nothing major, but we're getting a free stamp, so naturally, SBS would like us to spread the love around so others can discover their awesome stamps, too!

Today I'm using Peppermint Betty, which can be found in the online store HERE. Isn't she gorgeous!?!? The challenge was to not use red anywhere, so I used pinks (RV29 and 25) for her lips, the large candy cane, and the frosting on the cake. I used another lighter RV but I can't remember which one. The purples are all from the V series, the darkest being V17 and the lightest is V02. I would give you all the exact markers if I could, but I put them all back with the rest of the collection and forgot to write down which ones I used. Oopsy!

 The flowers are mostly Wild Orchid, but I also used a little green one that I got from Petal Lu. You can join her FB group  (she does monthly challenges as well!) Lucinda makes gorgeous flowers of all kinds in every colour imaginable... all by hand!

The background papers are sponged with Distress Oxides over stencils, and then I added a couple strips of designer paper for some contrast and interest. The paper is from BoBunny. The actual paper that I coloured on is Catherine Pooler paper, and I coloured using Copic markers.

 Thanks so much for stopping by! Feel free to pop over to Simply Betty's FB group and join in the challenge next month!
