Pink Rose and Butterflies
I found a really pretty sketch challenge this week from Party Time Tuesdays. Skeetch challenges are used as just a guide, however, this one I followered almost exactly as shown.
The papers are from a new collection from Close to my Heart called Sophia. The rose started as a pre-colored Corner Rose Collection from Fred She Said but it was a pretty light pink and I wanted to make it match the colors in my papers. So, I used my Copic Markers and re-colored it to match. I printed it twice so I could layer it for mor dimension and I should have taken a picture of the two side by side so you could see the difference in the coloring, but I forgot until just now.
I then used the Ornate Butterfly Digi, also from Fred She Said, which I printed out a whole sheet of all different sizes so I have on hand any size I need. I colored them with Copic Markers to match the papers. I cut out four different sizes for my two butterflies and coated them with Liquid Glass for lots of shine and added firmness so they hold their shape better. I then added Pink Crystals for the bodies.
The Happy Birthday is from a new Clear Stamp set from Close to my Heart called Card Chatter-Birthday. Do you know what I really LOVE about the Clear Acrylic stamps.....You can cut anc alter them. The Happy Birthday was a stamp with the words side by side. I cut it between the two words and mounted it on my acrylic block the way you see it on the card!
I used the Labels 10 Nesties for the sentiment but before stamping the Happy Birthday, I stamped the matching frame you see using the "Very Vintage Labels 10" clear stamps from Waltzing Mouse Stamps. I also added a few of the pink crfystals on that.
The green flourishes were cut using a Tim Holtz Sizzix Die, which I then added tiny pearls to. I Hand Stitched around the card with matching Embroidery Floss then added a Pink Crystal in each corner.
