This month's sketch was so inspiring, I had a few things running through my mind and in the end the things that grabbed me from this sketch were the stripes, the big white flower with the black middle and the white and green.
After a bit of thought I had an idea and just had to wait for a day I could put ink to cardstock and make it a reality.
I just love the Butterfly Basics stamp set from the Stampin' Up! 2015 Occasions catalog. It has such great images and is very versatile.
I decided to stamp the stripes in black (using the memento ink pad) onto whisper white cardstock. Then I took vellum and stamped the leaves using garden green ink and added some white cotton twine in a swirl. I love this effect! Lately I have been cutting up ribbon to get the thin strands of threads to do the same thing. A great effect and it adds a nice pop of color or shape.
For the flower, I punched 5 flowers using the 1-1/4" circle scallop punch and cut between the scallops for each flower. Then I added an antique brad for the middle.
The greeting is from the Saleabration stamp set called Simply Wonderful.
I love how this card turned out. I have been busy at work lately and so I haven't had the energy to create. I am very happy when my time spent creating is time well spent!
