A sketch ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week has started well. Over the weekend I bought the many snippets of paper or card that I have coloured, created or adorned in the past and put them into their own folder. Whilst doing that I realised that some of the papers would work well with some of the other ones. Today I put them together to create a coherent card for a sketch challenge and some other challenges.
I’m really surprised about how well they work together. In fact when DH saw them he complimented me on how well they all worked together, I laughed lol, all of the different papers/cards were created at different times, with many different products and techniques and luckily, for me, they have worked together beautifully! So here is the card I created …
Okay to post too!
These butterflies are gorgeous and I will be using them again soon!
Love this butterfly in particular and the stencil is fabulous!
A final look
Created for me and especially for these Challenges:
Inspiration Journal Challenge: embossing paste
The main background piece was in my stash of card that’s been coloured with left over ink on my work mat. The die cut circular piece is a mop up paper that I attached a stencil to then tapped Versamark all over before throwing on many different colours of EP. There are snippets of parchment paper that I am using up. There is an experimental painted background that I have attached a stencil and added embossing paste and pink glitter. The butterfly stamps and the rose stencil are new NBUS tools (lucky wins), and I was able to play with my watercolour pencils to create lovely softly coloured butterflies.
Unfortunately that means a very long list of supplies and tools – I have done my best to list all of them and apologies if I’ve not managed to do so. If you have any questions about how I created each piece then let me know and I’ll try to get back to you soon.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this week ttfn Karen x
