Hi everyone, for this weeks Stamping and Blogging sketch challenge I decided to use the Butterfly Basics Bundle. I love how Stampin’ Up! have the bundles available to purchase, buying a bundle allows you to get more product but pay less, how awesome is that. Here is my card for SB95.
I started by stamping the background (some images have been stamped off first) and then lightly sponges around the edges. I then cut out the butterfly twice, one in So Saffron and the other in Early Expresso card. I adhered the complete So Saffron butterfly onto a piece of Vellum Card and then sponged the butterfly using Pumpkin Pie ink to create a two toned effect. I then adhered the Early Espresso die cut butterfly on top. I used some black Baker’s Twine and little Pearls to make the antennas and the larger Pearls for the body. I coloured the Pearls in using a black sharpie. I finished the butterfly off by painting on some Dazzling Details.
I wanted to create a more ruffled effect with the ribbon, I did this by putting a piece of sticky strip on the card and then slightly scrunched the ribbon as I adhered it. Nice and easy to do and it creates a fun effect.
Here is a photo of this weeks sketch that I designed my card from.
