For today's post I thought I would play along with a few challenges, CR84FN # 33, Mojo Monday's Sketch #198 Challenge/Contest and Impression Obsession's "Hello" Challenge.. And let me tell you, this card was definitely a challenging one, lol... It just did not want to come together easily..lol In fact at one point I almost considered scrapping it and starting all over, But I really hate to do that... I really hate to be wasteful of time, energy and supplies.. lol... so I walked away from it for a bit, went on too a different project and came back to it and did a little tweaking here and there... Anyway, long story short, this is what I finally settled on, and I'm still really not sure if I like it or not.. lol But here it is, none the less.. 8-)
I stamped my Impression Obsession Butterfles by Sarah Phelps directly onto my Basic Grey Bittersweet dp with Memento Tuxedo Black. I cut my Sweet little butterflies out and added the little wire antennas, and pink pearl bodies, attached them to a Journaling label that I matted up with the help of my Nesties labels 18 and some red CS from my stash and popped the ensemble up with dimensionals. My background was created using a combo of more red CS from my stash & the same Basic Grey Bittersweet DP and it just ended up just looking way too bright, so I very lightly and carefully sponged on some White Frost pigment ink to soften the colors a bit.. I stamped my Impression obsession sentiment onto a little layered oval that I had left over from a previous project, with Memento Tuxedo Black and popped it up with dimensionals. And to finish it all up I added a bit of pink seem binding ribbon a fun little button and some bakers twine form MAD Stamper Finds.
Hope you all Have a Fabulous weekend & thanks so much for dropping in! 8-)
