First off.....Happy New Year!!!! I found myself home alone (that doesn't happen very often) so I decided to play the Featured Stamper Challenge this morning. I choose this card to CASE. I changed from the original by 1) changing the color scheme and 2) simplifying the sketch a bit.
I used the brayered sky technique to create the color on the main panel with a brayer. Whenever I use silhouette stamps like this, I always add a few white highlights to make them pop. The punched butterfly only has one wing glued down - the other is "flapping in the wind".
