Little Things

Hi there!  I hope you had a good day!  Tonight I'm sharing a card made for the current challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch.  Late last week I received my new monthly stamp kit from Hero Arts.  Wow, it is packed with all sorts of wonderful flower images, with all sorts of vessels to put them in, a couple of which I used for this card.

I started by stamping the jar, bottle and flowers with Versafine Onyx Ink on watercolor paper, then used various Distress Inks to color.  The images are somewhat petite so I used maybe one or two colors on each one, mostly just simple coloring, and just adding a bit of lighter blue for the background.  I love these sweet floral images and think using them with colored pencils would be great as well.  On a separate piece of watercolor paper, the butterfly was stamped, water colored and die cut with the accompanying die. 

Next I cut light blue card stock into three panels according to the sketch.  One was scored 1/8th inch around all the sides, and the second was stamped with Versamark ink using flowers from the stamp kit add on set, Little Florals, along with the butterfly from the monthly kit stamp set (easier to see in the photo below).  The third panel was stamped with sentiment, also from the add on set, then the water colored panel was added using foam tape.  After typing the Baker's Twine around the thinner vertical panel, all three were adhered onto the card base.

Morning Dew Nuvo Drops were added to the flowers and around the card and then the butterfly was painted with Clear Wink of Stella.

Thanks so much for visiting, as always it's so appreciated!  I've added a link above to the CTS challenge, so be sure to use it and check out all the amazing inspiration!
