another challenge. Please don't be getting sick of this butterfly yet.....as you can see I'm not! actually, like I said before, I stamped this image up three times on copic paper and three times on "regular" paper so I have the image set aside to color with whatever medium whenever I want. Usually when I stamp an image I stamp it multiple times on different papers so that I can have a ready stash of images to color or even take with me on a weekend trip to color. I am hoping to have time this summer to color when I am "fishing" too! Anyways, I find that doing this saves me alot of "prep" time when I just want to create but don't have a particular stamp in mind to use....I just go to my stash and make it work! So, today it is one more time with the Hero Art's Artist's Butterfly image....and I am finding that this stamp is a really fun image to bling up! It can be done in super girly-girly way as I did it today. I also am going to enter this card into the Moxie Fab Card Creations Challenge Week for The Doily and Lace Challenge. And this challenge entry came about in a funny way. I had card finished last night and was really happy with it. The final cardstock "mount" was a gingham piece that I stamped "hugs" on and then affixed the butterfly. Then last night, after coming home from an amazingly fun wedding, I happened to glance at the card and thought, "hmmmmm, the placement of the sentiment seems too far to the left for my eye. I will just change that." Now. With out my reading glasses on. After being at an amazingly fun wedding reception for hours (read into that what you will ;-D ). At 1:00 am......needless to say that when I looked it this morning my "fix", which was to add on the sentiment "& kisses" looked terrible, was crooked, smudged and just basically, a real lesson learned! So this morning I had to dismantle said card, ripping and tearing the underlayment in the process. Needing now a larger "mount" for my butterfly...... my eye spied a doily laying in my scrap pile from last week and VOILA!!!!! Card was saved! And, funny thing is...I actually like this version better! And I know exactly who is getting this card! So, entering into The Doily and Lace Challenge
And here is my card:
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope to have some crafting time later....it is supposed to storm but right now it is sunny and my bike is calling my name!
