First is Try Stampin' on Tuesday with this sketch,
secondly is Less is More with this photo for colour inspirations,
third is Make My Monday who want
fourth is Stampin' Royalty who want us to USE SMALL SCRAPS
and lastly, but no means least, Addicted to Stamps want us to MAKE YOUR MARK using markers.
Here is my card
I started by sponging four colours across a circle of white card with a Post It note masking where the sun would be. (I scribble my SU Write Markers onto my acrylic block to make it easier to pick up the ink with a sponge). The mask was removed and the silhouette flowers and birds were stamped over the sponged sunset. This was mounted on a recycled brown scallop circle, and scraps of cards made into the banners and butterfly. The finishing touches were the sentiment and gem on the butterfly body.
Card = Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Apricot Appeal, Whisper White, and Ivory base FMS
Stamps = Upsy Daisy, Papillon Potpourri, Clarity, and Docrafts
Inks = Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Apricot Appeal, Sahara Sand, and Soft Suede
Tools = Big Shot, Nestabilities, Post It, Sponges, Elegant and Bitty Butterfly Punches
Extras = 3D Pads and Gems
I have enjoyed playing about today, with my brayer and sponges, to make the sunset sky, but I preferred the sponging result ( I cant show you the brayered result as it's on the reverse of the sponged sky, and I forgot to photograph it before sticking it down!)
Thanks for dropping by and hope you can call back again soon.
