I hope you all had a good weekend. It has been cooler than normal here but at least the sun was shinning. I was finally able to get something new finished today. I wish I could make more than 1 new thing made a week but my perfectionism is getting in the way again. The card I am sharing with you today was originally made for Betsy Veldmans Sketch Challenge.
Then I incorporated these colors from the current Color Cue Challenge
And finally I was inspired by a part of the quilt from the Shabby Tea Room Comforts of Home Challenge for the background.
This is what I came up with
I started by stamping the background with images from the PTI Giga Guides and Guide Lines 2 stamp sets using Summer Sunrise, Berry Sorbet and Brocade Blue Ink. When I was done stamping the background I machine stitched it to look like a real quilted background. It is hard to see in the photo though. Next I stamped the Mat Stack die with the image that came in the Anniversary set that goes with it with Versamark Ink then embossed it with white embossing powder. After I was done with that I stamped the butterfly from the Butterfly Dreams set on Stampers Select White Cardstock using Summer Sunrise Ink then I cut it out with a circle punch. Next I added it to the middle of the mat stack piece and drew tiny dots with a Brocade Blue marker around the circle. When I was done with that I added a bow made from Berry Sorbet Grosgrain Ribbon and attached a matching button that was threaded with Twine. Finally I added 2 small butterflies also from the butterfly Dreams set that I stamped with Brocade Blue ink to the ends of the twine with glue dots.
That's it for now. I plan on working on my moms mother's day gift this week and hope to be back soon to share it with you. In the meantime have a great week and thanks for stopping by.
