Watercolor Wings

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

The card I'm sharing with you today was, despite it's simplicity, quite a challenge for me to design. Why? Because it's to be entered into the latest challenge over at TGIF. Yep, after a slow start and missing the first few there, I'm on a roll. The issue for me was that it's a sketch challenge and I often really struggle with a sketch, for some reason.

That said, I'm REALLY happy with the look of the card, the first I've created with the stunning NEW Watercolor Wings stamp and Bold Butterflies die bundle from Stampin' Up!, which I've stamped in three of my favorite colors...

Card: Whisper White
Ink: Soft Sky (butterfly wings), Pool Party (wing tips, sentiment and sponging) and Lost Lagoon (body and background)
Stamp set: Watercolor Wings
Tools: Bold Butterfly Framelits
Adhesive: Stampin' Dimensionals and Tombow


#188 AAG at Word Art Wednesday

I'll be back on Friday with another creation using this stamp and die bundle, so I hope you'll join me then.
