This week’s Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge really had me stumped for a while….I guess that’s where the “challenge” part comes in!
I had no idea where this card was going to come from. Usually when this happens, I will start with the stamp set but this card starting forming when I found the DSP laying on my desk under a pile of other papers.
I love the barn wood look of this paper from the Farmers Market Designer Series Paper. I then turned to what is probably my favorite stamp set in the whole annual catalog, Butterfly Basics, for the flower image.
I colored it using Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz ink and a blender pen. The sentiment is from the Sheltering Tree stamp set and the small butterfly is from Papillon Potpourri set punched with the bitty butterfly punch. I stamped all the images and sentiments with Chocolate Chip ink to coordinate more with the wood background.
The sentiment on the inside is also from the Butterfly Basics stamp set.The pink DSP is from the Love Blossoms Paper Stack. This card can be used to a variety of occasions from a simple hello, get well or even a birthday. I like to have a few of these kind of cards on hand.
I hope you have a very relaxing weekend and get to spend some time crafting. We here in PA are expecting the blizzard they’ve named, Jonas any minute now. Hopefully, it will just be a lot of snow which we can deal with. However, they are predicting very high winds and power outages.
