Tonight, I have a card to share that I just love. I don't usually say that about my own cards, but I love everything about how this card turned out from the color combo and patterns to the sketch itself.
I started out by stamping Damask Designs in black ink on lemon tart cardstock. I love the yellow and black together. Once I had my stamped pattern, I had to choose a color combo for my card. I decided upon lemon tart, black, hawaiian shores, kraft, and vintage cream. Just a small touch of hawaiian shores cardstock (available March 15th) makes all the other colors just pop. I used a piece of vintage sheet music as my second pattern for my card. I cut my circles for my sentiment. Then, I die cut my butterfly and stamped the butterfly from Butterfly Dreams it in tuxedo black ink. After coloring my butterfly with copic markers, I sponged the tea dye inks and dark chocolate ink around the edges of my stamped patterned cardstock, sheet music, sentiment circle, and butterfly die cut. A little crocheted lace and hawaiian shores stitched ribbon finish off my card.
I have been thinking about offering some crocheted lace in my etsy store or on my blog. Is this something some of you might be interested in? Have a fabulous weekend!
