Butterfly Friends

Hi there :) I made this card completely by using the sketch inspiration from MFT Sketch Challenge and the color and stash inspiration from the Butterfly Challenge. I took a look at this sketch:

MFT Sketch Challenge 322 #mftstamps

…And then saw that the Butterfly Challenge had the theme of G is for Glossy Accents, with the color option of Slate Blue. I stamped the butterflies (Inkadinkadoo) all over the backing paper, then cut the frame from some slate blue card stock with my Cricut. I traced where the frame would sit, then used my Prismacolors to only color the inside part…..Of course using blue shades….Including the slate. I took a strip of ivory edged with some black pinstriping, then a strip of white, which I stamped a LDRS sentiment on.  Finally, I stamped and colored one more butterfly, which I covered with Glossy Accents, and added it as an accent.  The joys of photography (when it’s a bit dark), don’t really show off the colors in a true way, or the shine of the Glossy Accents….unless you really zoom in a lot.   I think this makes a cheerful, yet classy card for a friend!!

BFFGood morning!! Hope everything is going well for you, as we go into a new week!  Today I have a card for you this was made for a challenge on the Kit and Clowder Facebook group, using this sweet image from Some Odd Girl.  I colored Crazy Love Tia with my SN markers – which have been feeling a bit neglected since I got my Prismacolors!  I paper-pieced her jacket and jeans with some scraps that I had on hand, and shaded these pieces with my markers.  I also added some “tears” in the jeans with some white gel pen (that wasn’t working too well).  I found the adorable paper with the paws in hearts, and knew it would be perfect for this card!!  It coordinated with the denim print paper that I also used.  I found the circular “friend” sentiment – one that I’ve had for years, and have never used before!! The paw border was from the same paper collection as the heart background paper, and the punched border incorporated more hearts :) I added a sprinkling of brads in one of the corners for some balance, and called this card done :)
