I don't like repeating, but this time I must say this once again... isn't the Chasing the Butterflies collection cute?! They are so lovely to colour, and easy to assemble and coordinate. Some stamps give you lots of choices about styles you can experiment with. These are a bunch of them. So I decided to play with some freebie colourful papers I had been given with Papercraft Magazine I think it was! Can't remember.. it was about two years ago, when I was still new to cardmaking skills, and wasn't still making part of blogland! :) So I needed inspiration from somewhere!!
I love how these papers coordinate, and even though vibrant colours aren't my speciality.. but when I do use them, I always like the result! :)
Simon Says Challenge have this lovely sketch to follow, and I really wanted to try it out. I have seen that they also published my last blogged card on their site! Thank you, I'm honored :) You can see it here.
Close up of the embellishments I used.
As usual, my Distress inks came to the rescue, when it comes to colouring, they are wonderful! I used blues and reds, and Scattered Straw colour for the background, but it doesn't really show in the photos. IRL it has a lovley yellowish colour as background, then Brushed Courduroy for the ground.
I embellished with a ladybug, which was in my stash quite a while,some flowers and doodle dies parts. For the semi circle part of the sketch, I divided a doily lace in half, and I used one of them on the front, the other half on the inside.
To embelish here, I used these sticker gems, a lovely sentiment, computer generated, and some mini pearls circles. I left the circle panel emprty for a persosnalised message, and I used an embossed prima flower, matted with a punched flower my dear friend Lim had sent me when I had won her candy!!! :)
I hope you like it, and help me know what you think of this creation by leaving a message. I'd be overjoyed! :) Thank you for being here, and I hope you're having a peaceful and tranquil weekend. In any case, do remember to bless the Lord!
