Today I have another take on this week's sketch from Sunday Stamps. Last week I showed you a couple of relatively predictable takes on it, but this one is a bit of a stretch. First of all, here is the sketch:
...and here is my upside-down take on it:
|Any-occasion card featuring the Butterfly Basics stamp set and the Dictionary background stamp.|
I used the Dictionary background stamp on a piece of Whisper White card stock with Sahara Sand ink. I masked off the bottom section with a post-it note before I started stamping so that it would remain pristine white. Then I stamped images from the Butterfly Basics stamp set: the ferns in Mossy Meadow ink and the little flowers in Blackberry Bliss ink. I added a couple of butterflies in Lost Lagoon, as well as the postmark image in Soft Suede and the honeycomb in metallic gold. I sponged the whole thing lightly with Sahara Sand ink to soften the images and take the brightness out of the white card stock.
Butterflies Thinlits. I used Hello Honey card stock for the smaller one and gold foil for the larger. I layered them with glue dots and then added a little button in Blackberry Bliss and some thick Baker's Twine in Hello Honey. Because the twine was too thick to fit through the holes of the button, I separated the strands...I kind of like the look! The final touch was some Hello Honey stitched satin ribbon before adhering the card front to a Blackberry Bliss card base.
Mossy Meadow, added some flowers in Blackberry Bliss ink and the honeycomb in metallic gold. If you haven't yet give this sketch a try, there is still time! The challenge doesn't close until Friday, so get busy and give it a go. Then be sure to link up over at Sunday Stamps! Have a great week!
