Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't posted in the last week (it's been a long time since I have done that) but I was trying to get my sneak peeks for Clear Dollar Stamps done by deadline so I was creating a lot of goodies behind the scenes. So without further adieu.... Guess what day it is!!! Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday! Wow I can't believe this month has gone by so fast and that it is Amy Sheffer's last week with us. :-( Amy has been one of my stamping idols for a long time so I've loved working with her sketches this month.
Check out this week's sketch - it's fabulous!!!
I ended up making my card to be 4 1/2 x 8. Why? Well....I had this fantastic idea to use this really cool wooden flower that I bought at Pier 1 Imports over the weekend and it was rather big so I had to adjust the size of the card to fit the flower. I was going to have the butterfly from Healing Wings popped up off the flower. Well... Things didn't go exactly as planned. In other words, the flower looked ridiculous! I like how my card turned out in the end though - I matted the layers a few times behind the main image and then used my Blossom Nestabilities to finish it off. Can I just tell you how in love with Distress Inks I now am in? I am loving them! See the cool looking border I have on the edge of the card. Can you believe I bought that punch at Michael's before Christmas and didn't realize I even owned it until I opened up one of the my punch drawers and saw it sitting there.
