Flutterby challenge

Hi Everyone. Hope you are having a really great day. Don't forget to enter my blog candy giveaway. You can find the link here Today I am going to share with you a bright and cheery card I created using a previous Card Patterns sketch. I'm really enjoying the coloring part of stamps. It is super therapeutic. The image is from the same About Art Accents plate I used in the emboss resist card and I just love it. Leave a comment and tell me what ya think.
Buttons are starting to be one of my favorite embellishments to use on a card. They really give dimension and I think they are quite playful. All of these buttons were found in my moms laundry room, the last time I was visiting, so thank you mom *hugs*. For the background paper where the image was stamped, I used Perfect Medium and then a few different colors of chalk. It really made that image come alive and chalk is pretty fun to play with. Next card you make, try some chalk techniques.


Supplies:
stamps: About Art Accents-Floral Arrangement:paper cut butterflies plate, Harmony Classic Circle II Stamp 2-5/16 with Times Roman Font,
Spellbinders: Scalloped and regular small rectangle, regular oval
Paper: Card stock- PTI white and Raspberry Fizz, SU Basic Black, Barely Banana, Old Olive, Basic Grey-Bittersweet Ganache
Accessories: I {Heart} Paper Olive Leafy Vine ribbon, Assorted buttons
Coloring agents: Versafine Onyx Black, Le Plume markers, assorted chalk
Tools: Big Shot, Scor-pal, Purple Cows 2-in-1 trimmer, postage stamp punch

  15. Oh I just love that leafy button treatment you have going up the side - makes this card more homespun-ish and goes well with the sentiment.
