STAMPlorations Sketch Challenge 16


Hi, here is my second blog post for today - please scroll down for the House of Cards challenge post!
So its time again for the new sketch challenge at STAMPlorations!









The background strip I made with a Tim Holtz stencil - its called dot fade and you can also buy this in the STAMPlorations shop.  The butterflies are from the Vignette: Artful Flutters. I colored watercolor paper with distress inks and then stamped the butterflies onto it. Added a little Wink of Stella. The antennae I made with a thin wire and added Stickles to the ends. The sentiment is from the SENTIMENT BUILDERS: Happy.

And that is the sketch for this fortnight:



Go and visit the STAMPlorations blog to let our wonderful DT inspire you and also have a look at the fabulous card from our very talented Guest Designer Sue!
The challenge ends August 1; the winner will be announced August 5


I am also playing with this card in the Simon Says challenge - spots and dots (dotted background)
I am also linking this up with the July Linky Party for a chance to win a $25.00 gift card in the a2zscrapbooking Store.

I hope to see you there!

Hallo Cornelia, schöne Karte, die Schmetterlinge sehen super aus in der Technik. Ist der Text ein Stempel oder sind das einzelne Buchstaben, die Schrift gefällt mir seht gut.
Danke für die Info zur Karte!:-)
