Where there is life...

Hooray it's Tuesday so it's time for another great challenge from Tuesday Morning Sketches. This week the sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps. As usual the second week of the month is the judged challenge so in addition to following the sketch the added twist for this week is: Make it Vintage!


Looking forward to seeing your creations.



This delightful image is from Bugaboo Stamps.  To design this card I used a paper pad from Prima for the background, the shapes are Spellbinders and a Marvy Gold Calligraphy pen was used on the edges. (Guess this is my 'trademark'...I used either a gold or silver pen on many of my cards!)


The image was colored with Copic markers, various highlights were added with a Sakura Stardust gel pen, and glossy Accents were applied to the bubbles.


The flowers and pearls from Michael's were highlighted with the same Copic markers that were used to color the image. Pearl flourishes are from Want2Scrap, antique butterflies and lace edging is from a second hand store and wire for antennae is from Walmart.

Please stop by to see all the marvelous creations from our Guest Designer and the rest of the team.


Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
