All That Scraps Challenge


What a perfect day to play in the craftroom! With everything going on around here lately, I haven't had time to keep up with my challenges (I know, I'm pathetic) but today is quite cool outside and not very sunny ... so, to the craftroom I go!!!


This card was made for a sketch challenge over on the message board of All That Scraps. I used my stamps from The Rubber Cafe to make both the background dp and the main image. This beautiful butterfly image lends itself so well to the crayon resist technique that I instantly knew what I wanted to use for the main image on this sketch challenge.
What a fun sketch to work with. I did take one liberty and added sheer ribbon to the bottom of the main panel. Also, since the main image is double matted, to save on layers, I used my round black Creative Memories marker to edge panels 2 & 3. Gives the illusion of matting without the weight. What's your thoughts?? Thanks for stopping by!!
