Hello and happy Sunday! I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far. I whipped up this little card this morning and wanted to share it. The best part is, the whole card took me less then a half hour to create, start-to-finish. That is a new record! :)
I used the color combo from The Color Dare blog as my inspiration:
Color Dare #79:
Then paired it up with the sketch from Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge:
Up until today, my Playful Pieces (level 3, hostess) set has remained uninked. Probably because it consists of that dreaded "two step stamping" technique, that I'm not really all that good with. I will say one thing though, using this technique with the Clear Mount Stamps is WAY easier then with the wood blocks. To assemble the butterflies (or are they dragonflies??), I used 3 seperate stamps, one for the body, one for the large wing, and one for the small wing. The cool part was that I could stamp in 3 different colors, pretty easily this way. It's a pretty simple card but I like how all came out with the sketch and those fabulous colors.
Now for your daily dose of CUTENESS!! My little Ozzy got himself a stylin' new raincoat this week while I was out shopping. He refuses to go outside when it is raining, so I am willing to try just about anything at this point. He is a stubborn, stubborn terrier. I'm not sure if he was as amused as I was with it.
Doesn't he look adorable?? (...or maybe a little like a 22 pound, fuzzy Gorton's Fisherman? HaHa!)Stampin' Up! Supply List:
