Sketchfest Wednesday

I made this card for Sketchfest Wednesday at Caardvarks. However, I originally made a card with the same sketch last night (or early this morning around 2 am), but I think I may have interpreted the sketch too liberally... So this is my second try...

It makes me happy whenever there are scraps involved in making a card. Except for the card base, all are scraps from making this card. All the panels are clear-embossed with Hero Arts stamps then colored/distressed with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. The Hero Arts digi-butterfly is colored with Copics.



ingredients used:
cardstocks, twine: Papertrey Ink
stamps: Hero Arts, Hero Arts Digital (butterfly, text background)
inks: VersaMark, Memento, Tim Holtz Distress Ink
markers: Copic
punch: Stampin' Up

Thanks for stopping by!
