Hey, y'all, Happy Thursday! How has your week been so far? Mine has been good, but very busy! And I haven't even started back to school shopping yet! *gulp*
I was up really late last night, but I really wanted to stamp something since I hadn't been in my room since Monday. So I decided to do a Clean and Simple version of this week's Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast.
I got some new stamps from Serendipity last week, so I decided to ink up this image from the Butterfly Cube...isn't it gorgeous? First I cut and embossed my Neenah Solar White cardstock with my Large Deckled Rectangle Nestabilities and sponged Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, and a little Memento Black inside the die. Then I stamped the butterfly image in Memento Black, removed the die, and colored them with Copic markers. I then added some white accents on their wings with my white gel pen from Ranger.
My card base is Berry Sorbet from Papertrey, and I added a black strip punched with my Martha Stewart border punch. I had intended to tie ribbon around the card base into a bow, but it just didn't look right, so I did a little grosgrain/button treatment. Then WHOOPS! I forgot the circle panel of the sketch...so I whipped out my little circle piercing guide and pierced three rows in the top right corner. *whew!* This "quick little card" ended up taking me an HOUR...which I guess for me is pretty good, but I sure wish I could do 10 minute cards sometimes! Oh, well...I enjoy the time I spend usually more than I enjoy the finished product, so I guess it's the process.
Anywho, I better run...just wanted to pop in and say hi and post this real quick. I'll see you tomorrow with my Bellariffic Friday card, k? Have a fabulous day!
