Creative Nugget: Here is a Sweet Peek of a new clear stamp set being released this Thursday at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called, "Treasured." I LOVED coloring this image. I did a Google search for monarch butterfly images and found a picture that was almost exactly like the stamp, grabbed my copics, and began to color away. Since this image screams to be showcased, most of the other elements of the sketch were kept white to let the flower and butterfly pop! Doilies seemed the perfect solution for the circle panels...some dark red patterned paper was used to back the doily to let some of the red color peek through. The doilies and all the layers were sponged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. A photo corner punch was used to create the sentiment tag. Some piercing and a few buttons with pearl accents finished the card!
I didn't get a chance to make a Christmas version this week as I'm busy creating Easter cards. Hopefully, I'll have another one next week!
Don't forget to stop by the blogs of the other Sugar Babies to see more fabulous inspiration.
I hope you have a fabulous weekend and get a chance to play along with us this week!
