Our challenge this week is Photo Inspiration, the rules for this are that you should take any element from the photo and use it in your card. Do tell us what you've used for inspiration. Our sponsor this week is Stitchy Bear who is giving the challenge winner 3 digi images up to the value of $10.00. I've used one of the images available at Stitchy Bear - a beautiful butterfly by Delicious Doodles; here's my card:
Stamps: PTI - Doodlie-Do; Delicious Doodles - Small Butterfly
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Copic Markers; Sakura Micron Pen
I've used the sketch from this week's Retro Sketches - RS#119 for the layout and as I've used some "never-before-used schtuff", I'm submitting it to Darnell's challenge - NBUS#1 too! I've taken the rainbow colours from the photo as inspiration for the card; using bold colours on the butterfly and softer shades on the flowers. The small butterfly is just gorgeous and is a joy to colour. I printed it out in various sizes coloured the background of the wing a soft grey, added rainbow colours and then fussy cut them all out. I adhered the smallest butterfly directly to the card, the largest is attached with dimensional tape and the medium sized one has a bit of a lift at the top wings. I lightly pencilled lines on the card, worked out where to position the images and stamped them with Memento ink. Once stamped, I drew in the lines with a very fine Micron pen and rubbed out any pencil marks. I coloured the images with Copic Markers. I've left the inside blank.
