WSC91 - FRIEND

The card for today is for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge which is being hosted this weekend by Laurie Schmidlin. For this card I used a mixture of different things, I used the stamp set All Holidays for the Friend saying and inked most of it in Old Olive and the FRIEND in Mellon Mambo and cut and embossed it with my oval Nestabilities. The butterfly and flower are from the stamp set For All You Do and for the butterfly I was trying to do the Kissing technique with the small dotted stamp that came with the For All You Do set and it really didn't add much texture. So I decided to ink up the butterfly in MM and kiss it with the medium sized flower from the set and what I got was sort of interesting I thought because it looked like a moth or butterfly pattern after I stamped it. The designer papers are Walk in the Park for the Kiwi Kiss squares and Mellon Mambo designer paper with piercing around the edge.

Supplies: All Holidays, For All You Do, Mellon Mambo DSP, Walk in the Park DSP, Nestabilities, Ribbon, Circle punch, Brads, Rhinestone brad, Piercer, Pop dots. Colors: Old Olive, Kiwi Kiss, Mellon Mambo, Whisper White.






Have a wonderful weekend!
