My Favorite Butterfly in Blues
I saw this Addicted to Stamps photo challenge and knew it was time to pull out one of my all time favorite stamps, the butterfly from the retired "Find Your Style" stamp set from Close to My Heart.
I also knew immediately that I wanted to use this Freshly Made Sketch:
To ink the butterfly, I pressed the stamp into my Crystal Blue ink pad and then used sponge daubers to apply Pacifica and Blue Denim. After I fussy cut her out, I sponged some Black around the edge of her wings and colored her body with a black journaling pen. I am not very adept at splatters, so a stamp from the Ink Blot set came in handy to create the border. A single black sparkle and flourish completed the card for now. I am not sure what I am going to use this card for, so I will stamp a small sentiment to the right of the butterfly when I know.
Thank you for stopping by! Until next time, Hansi
