OCC Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone! It rained again alllll day yesterday and I think we're in for more allll day today. Ick! Anyhoooo, here's my card for today's OCC challenge...it's a sketch...hosted by Amy Sheffer! Be sure to check out the OCC blog to view the sketch as well as the great samples from the girls.

I inked up my new Butterfly Happiness set from There She Goes. The butterfly was stamped in Timber Brown StazOn, watercolored with Marigold Morning ink, cut out, and popped up on dimensionals. The stems along the bottom were stamped in Close to Cocoa and Marigold Morning ink (colored direct to the acrylic stamp and then stamped onto the white CS). The main panel was stamped in Close to Cocoa as well, twice...once for the darker image and then again for the faded one.

The inside of the card has a Marigold Morning panel, and then a white panel over that stamped with the same Marigold and Close to Cocoa stems that are on the front.

RECIPE ~
