... and the SCS Sketch Challenge all in one!!
I'm just ticked pink with how this card came together! When I saw the colors for today's Color Throwdown, I though ... oh my gosh, what can I do with that ... but of course the fact that they are the colors in the Basic Grey Ambrosia paper pack (and I just happen to have that one), things became easier. I actually thought the same thing when I first saw the Sketch Challenge for today on SCS. But once I got started ... it really all came together quite nicely! I KNEW I wanted to use this butterfly image from the Inkadinkado (garden delight) set and piece by piece it came together perfectly!
I stamped the butterfly with Versafine Black ink directly onto the designer paper and embossed it with Detail Clear embossing powder. The wings automatically lifted on both sides ... how convient was that!! My ribbon is actually a peach color from May Arts but it's not quite as colorful due to having it layered with a strip of Basic Black cardstock. My circle was cut with Nestabilities then outlined using a Creative Memories round tip black marker. The sentiment on the front of my card is from Hero Arts and for those of you who enjoy seeing the INSIDE of the cards, I have provided a little peak at this one. I've used scraps from the Basic Grey Ambrosia dp and border edged it with my Stampin' Up scallop border punch. The sentiment is from The Artful Stamper and the little butterfly is from another Inkadinkado set. Don't forget --- (click on any photo for a more detailed view).
Thanks so much for stopping by today ... I hope you find inspiration in my work.
