STAMPlorations Sketch Challenge #9

OOoops - published a day early.......well, gives you extra time to prepare....

Hi my Friends - its time for another sketch challenge at STAMPlorations! This is a fun one - you'll love it! We also have a very talented Guest Designer  - Kathy from Stamps at Play!

But first my card:


I used the VIGNETTE: Artful Flutters. I stamped the butterfly on watercolor paper, inked it up with my Kaleidocolor ink pad and spritzed it with water, before I stamped it. I let it dry and then fuzzy cut it, The sentiment is from the same set. 



The strip of newsprint paper is actually also from STAMPlorations - Shery wraps the stamps in it, when she ships them - another little bonus :)


April 7 - Sketch #9
(ends April 18; winner announced April 20)

PRIZE
The sketch challenges are sponsored by our sister shop, All About Scrapping. The winner gets to pick 3 DIGITAL products from the shop -- any combination of printable sheetsPhotoshop templates, and digital paper packs. The winner will also be invited as a Guest Designer in next month's sketch challenge.

Now head over to the blog and let our fantastic design team inspire you!

I am also linking this card with Time Out challenges - basically butterflies on a white background - I just made mine a bit more colorful..... The Card Concept - butterfly theme
and of course the Snippets Playground - lots of snippets in this card!
