It's a rainy spring morning here . . . again, but they PROMISE sunshine and 80's by this weekend! YIPPEE! This card was created with two challenges in mind;
1. Jen Del Muro's SFYTT (Sketch for You to Try) and
2. Paper Makeup Stamps Weekly Challenge
The Paper Makeup challenge was to use the colors Kraft, Old Olive, Cameo Coral and Summer Sun. I cheated a little and threw in some black, but I consider that a neutral :) The colors and DP I chose had a "springy" feel to it so I decided to use the butterfly image from Paper Makeup Stamps -Buggy Sayings set. I stamped, colored and cut it out but I thought it needed to be more of a focal point so I stamped it again in the same DP, cut it out and layered it on top of the first image. This way I was able to fan the wings out and give it some dimension.
The sentiment is a $1 stamp I found at Michaels. I thought it went well with this card and could easily be used for a new house or even Mothers Day. Thanks for looking!
