Just look at that sketchedy butterfly and those bright colors
and TRY not to smile.
This little number was inspired by the brand new challenge over at STAMPlorations.
Here's how STAMPlorations challenges work:
> Use either the sketch OR the theme OR both
> Use any product/stamp/paper you like - STAMPlorations products NOT required
Now here's a full look at what I created, using the sketch.
I did a whole lotta faux-stitching with gel pens, and then I stenciled on the background using ARTplorations Brackets Stencil. The butterfly is from the Blossom Like a Butterfly set and I muddied up the edges a bit using the Mixed Media Grunge set. Last, but not least, I added a die cut (brand new!) called CUTplorations Celebrate Word Die.
I'm loving all the grunginess going on here!
I'm also going to send my flutterby over to flit in the following challenges:
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
Crafty Gals Corner - Birthdays/Celebrations
Thanks for popping by!
