Party Day *6*...a card for The Craft's Meow sketch...

Saturday, February 11, 2012

Hello all! I'm excited about this card pleased with the way it came together...and so happy to have played with stamps again! Didn't realize how much I've missed that! I've been loving my digital papers and images, and they have been so practical for my nursing home projects, with all the recent special holidays...but I love the adventure of stamping...and loved making the card for this sketch on The Craft's Meow blog...

That takes a whole lot of work out of a project, now DON'T IT?!? So pretty! I used some watercolor paper and some misting for my circular focal point...

...I wanted that cage to be subtle. I stamped it once on scrap, then misted with water and stamped again. Did it here last year and LOVED the results! The cage and sentiment is from the Fly Free the the mix of pretty fonts! The little fussy-cut butterfly is from the Friend of Mine set. (The tissue butterfly layers are cut from Papertrey's butterfly die...from an old pattern I no longer needed.) I used some new My Mind's Eye paper to create a pretty little backdrop...

...and there she be!! What do you think?!?

Thanks to The Craft's Meow for the pretty monthly sketch and fun chance to win some stamps!

  3. Loved the way you did the butterfly. Looks like it could fly away!!! Always look forward to your postings. Keep warm!!!!

  4. I loved this sketch, but I really don't think I'll have time :( You did a great job, and I love how that cage looks... but I don't totally get how you did it!!

  5. Oh, my! Dare I say GERIorgeous yet again? I really can't over-use that word when I only use it here, right? lol I love this beautiful card! Isn't it fun to use up the old pattern tissue when we know we're not using the pattern anymore? So pretty, my friend! Happy Sunday to you! :o)

  6. Those butterflies are amazing and just look like they can fly away! So so pretty
