Good Wednesday Morning! Sorry I'm running a bit late this morning. My son had a baseball game last night and it sort of put me behind with everything, but I still got to do the Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge! SC175.
I wasn't too sure how much I was going to like the sketch just by looking at it...it seemed like quite the challenge for me, but it came together quite quickly actually and I like the end result! Simple yet eye catching! It was really late (1:30 a.m. ) and I decided I needed to keep it simple, so I stuck to the sketch and the only fancy work I did was making the stamped image a bit two-toned and then I added a row of dots around the right half-circle, and I also added some stickles to the butterflies to give it a little dimension, but I don't think that shows up in the picture. That was it! The paper.....OH how I love the paper! It is a recent find for me in a clearance stack at a scrapbook store, so I'm assuming it is old news..but new to me. Anyway, it is called Daisy Bucket...it is delicioso! It is quite thin but has some yummy texture and takes ink well. I used it on another card, but I will show that one tomorrow! Cardstock is Choc. Chip, and perhaps More Mustard, but I didn't think that I owned that color - maybe that rust color, but for sure not Pumpkin, Marigold, or Apricot (I found it in my scrap box). I'm terrible with the SU colors that I don't use often, lots of the purples, blues, and greens, I just don't know. It is a bit orange, but a bit dirty looking, all I know is that it matched the DP good enough...and it was close to the right size, so I used it! The beautiful butterflies are from Inkadinkado Patterned Bugs. (Jacksonbelle has one left in stock!) I am so happy with this stamp set....I reach for it often! Ooh, and I used Versamagic inks for the butterflies. I think this ink works beautifuly for clear stamps and is my first choice if I have the color! (Note to self...get more Versamagic colors!) I was actually shocked that I had the right colors for this card!
