Today was such a gorgeous day! I am ready to see some "flutterby's"... bring on Spring!!
This week Mercy had an awesome sketch (I always love her sketches), so I just had to take a break from "re-organizing" my stamp room and ink up some rubber. I stamped the butterfly and colored it in, then I found some paper and started putting the card together. Somewhere along the line, my butterfly went in one direction and the rest of the card went in another, hahaha. So I re-did the butterfly. I stamped it in some Cocoa ink (Memento) and then used some yellow/orange Copics. I didn't really care if the Cocoa "bled" or smeared some when I colored because I kind of wanted to pull a little of the brown into the yellows. I really like the look. Both the butterfly and the sentiment are from Gina K's set, Take Flight. I was trying to figure out what color for the base of this card... white was too "white" and vanilla was too "yellow". While I was flipping through my Prism swatchbook I stumbled across 3 colors that I NEVER think about Butter Cream, Vanilla Cream and Sugar Cream. I chose Sugar Cream here. I LOVE these colors and can't believe I haven't used them before! I also love the texture of the Prism... I can leave some card stock showing without it looking "flat" to me. The "pretty papers" here are from the Origins pack by Basic Gray. I just love this paper pack! I got some of the 12x12 papers for a project I am working on, fell in love with them, got a small pack and then got some more of them from a friend! lol. By the way, Cathy at Paper Garden has both the paper pack and Prism cs singles on sale right now, pop on over there and tell her I said "hey".
