Hello and happy Friday! Hope this finds everyone getting ready for the weekend. My weekend will be spent at work, so goes the life of working retail! :-) My card today was inspired by a technique I saw Catherine Pooler do in combination with a sketch and the challenge on Simon Says Stamp.
I have seen CP (Catherine Pooler) recently use a stencil to selectivly add color on a card, where the color is more intense in the middle and fading out to the sides. I thought I'd give it try since I like the look and makes great background for a simple card. I used the sketch from CASE this sketch.
Once I was done with the back ground and added my sentiment, I felt that the card needed a little some thing else. I had some little wooden butterflies that I hadn't used in awhile. I colored one with some orange stickles and will include this on the CASology blog as well.
I used a mini Heidi Swapp stencil with Spiced Marmalade distress. The sentiment is from on of the new Close to my Heart Card Kits and I stamped it using Memento Luxe in Rich Cocoa.
Thanks as always for stopping by! Have a great weekend everyone!
