Freshly Made Sketches has the most wonderful challenge for you this week! Just take a look at this awesome sketch by Rita Wright. Great isn’t it? At first I had to think hard about what to use but I started to see lots of possibilities.
Butterflies are what came to mind and I decided to go with it (even though I had snowflakes out on my table). I pulled out the Epic Day DSP and punched out 4 of the big butterflies with my Elegant Butterfly Punch and then chose a different print for the Bitty Butterfly Punch. I layered them with Pool Party buttons and some Linen Thread and then put them on a Crumb Cake layer that was stamped with the Dictionary stamp. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes (it is still one of my favorite sets ever) stamped onto some more of the DSP. I attached the butterflies and buttons using Crystal Effects and used the same to fix them to the card. It is great and dries really fast! Finally the stamped layer and Pool Party frame were popped up on Dimensionals.
I hope you like this one and can’t wait to see all the interpretations in the gallery this week. Thanks, Rita, for a good challenge! I needed something to push me a little!
I will be back tomorrow with another card (I know….three in a row??!!). Starting to catch up a bit but still miles to go on some stamping projects. *smile* I’m so glad you stopped by today. See you again tomorrow!
