Hi everyone, this week I decided to give you a bit of a sneak peek and have used the Awesomely Artistic stamp set from the new 2015/2016 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. My catalogue is already starting to show signs of being loved, but that is a good sign, right 🙂 Now don’t worry I have plenty of catalogues to share around, just contact Patrice if you would like me to reserve a copy for you. Here is the card I have made for SB104.
I reckon the little dragonfly is just so darn stinkin cute, I can see this set easily becoming one of my favourites. I created the two-toned effect on the butterfly using the Sahara Sand inkpad and Early Espresso maker, I then painted a little Dazzling Details on the dragonfly to bring it to life.
I love using the Blender Pen to colour images, that way you can control the depth of colour.
I could not resist using the little dragonfly stamp again so I decorated up the inside of the card too 🙂
Here is a photo of this week’s sketch challenge that I designed my card from, now I have some exciting news for you 🙂 You can now play along and have some fun designing a card using this sketch, then click here to share it with us. I can’t wait to see what you have come up with.
